Dillian Whyte vs Jermaine Franklin: Ring walks, how to watch, odds & more

Dillian Whyte returns to the ring on Saturday night to take face the unbeaten Jermaine Franklin at Wembley Arena.

This is the Body Snatcher’s first fight back after defeat to Tyson Fury in April and the Brixton boxer will be hoping to get back into the buzzing heavyweight mix.

Whyte has suffered three defeats in his 31-fight professional career, against the Gypsy King, Anthony Joshua and Alexander Povetkin, but at the age of 34 the feeling is that the Londoner may still have a couple of big performances in the tank.

Franklin has never mixed it with anyone near the level of Whyte and the Michigan man’s career has been plagued with periods of inactivity. However, the 29-year-old brings the confidence of an unbeaten fighter to the ring and it will be interesting to see how the American performs.

Are there any belts on the line for Dillian Whyte vs Jermaine Franklin?

There are no belts up from grabs in this heavyweight contest. Whyte held the WBC interim heavyweight crown prior to defeat to Fury, but the Londoner failed in his bid to claim a world title proper. Franklin has never fought for a belt of any description and that won’t be changing here.

What is Dillian Whyte's record?

Whyte has won 27 of his 31 professional bouts, with three defeats and one no contest. The Body Snatcher has been beaten by Fury, Joshua and Povetkin, but the Londoner does have some impressive victories on his record.

The Brixton banger has got the better of Oscar Rivas, Derek Chisora, Joseph Parker and Mariusz Wach and he has also avenged his knockout defeat to Povetkin.

Many fancied Whyte to give Fury a tough time when that pair clashed earlier this year, but that didn’t really materialise and it was a rather lacklustre display from the Londoner. The Body Snatcher has seen 18 of his 27 victories come by stoppage, but only two of Whyte’s last six bouts have gone the distance.

What is Jermaine Franklin's record?

Franklin brings an unblemished record to the ring, but it’s a card of very little substance. The Michigan man is undefeated in 21 bouts, but many have those have been extremely low-key contests and this is a major step up in class for the American.

The 29-year-old did record a hat-trick of decent victories over Jerry Forrest, Rydell Booker and Pavel Sour, but that was in 2019 and Franklin has fought just once since that trio of triumphs.

The American has recorded 14 knockout victories, but four of his last five bouts have gone the distance.
