Heavyweights Dillian Whyte and Jermaine Franklin faced off at the Final Press Conference ahead of their showdown on Saturday night in London.

Dillian Whyte: “We know what’s in front of us. He’s young and he’s dangerous. Obviously he’s undefeated and he’s full of beans as we say here in the UK. It’s up to me to beat them out of him one by one. That’s exactly what I’m going to do.”

Jermaine Franklin: “You keep bringing up him being stopped in his last fight but I don’t care about that. I’ve come in here and prepared like he’s a world champion. That’s all we’re looking at. I’m just focused on this fight.”

  • Hey Dillian, you were cruising to victory against Fury and then he came along and pushed you. Yeah right. This fool must have got his brain rearranged by those uppercuts from Povetkin and Fury.

    • Boxers tend to go into delusions when they lose. Whyte isn’t alone. Wilder straight accused Fury of cheating. Sometimes you need to justify to yourself why you got beat. I think Whyte is a bridge too far for Franklin and gets the W. Could be interesting while it lasts.

  • Joshua knocked Whyte out with an uppercut as well. Too me, both fighters have a similar offensive style, might make for a decent heavyweight scrap.

  • Kudos to Franklin’s team for taking the fight. We will know soon enough if he any future as a contendor. Whyte and Chisora are the 2 gatekeepers to the elite of the heavyweight division. They are active fighters and will not lay down to take a payday. No shame in losing to Fury.

  • Whyte has been ” all washed up ” for quite some time. Does he really believe that he deserves another shot at Fury… Whyte should retire as he will never become heavy weigh champ.. he’s been overrated for quite sometime…
