Former boxing heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua has promised to retire from boxing if American boxer Jermaine Franklin defeat him.
The duo are scheduled to take to the ring at the 02 Arena in Greenwich, London on April 1st.
Recall that Joshua’s bout with Tyson Fury could not hold when sponsorship broke down between the former unified world heavyweight champion.
In his words, Joshua echoed:
“I will retire if I lose.
“I’m not here to battle people. If people want me to retire I will retire. I’m not going to fight if people don’t want me to..
“It’s not even about the money. It’s about the competitor in you. That’s what’s important.”
