Anthony Joshua vs Jermaine Franklin Prediction & Best Bet

This fight marks a potential turning point in Joshua's career, which has been knocked off its tracks a bit with two consecutive losses. A win gets him on his way back to being a champion; a loss puts his future in limbo as a top heavyweight contender.

There is no value in betting on Joshua moneyline, or even to win by KO, but if we target when that KO might happen, then there's something intriguing. Franklin is no chump, but with Joshua needing this win more than him, I expect the Englishman to come out swinging and try to take command of this fight early. Franklin has too good of a chin to be dropped really early, so we're going with Joshua to win in Rounds 4-6.

Bet: Anthony Joshua to Win Round 4-6 (+220)
