Mar 29th, 2023

Jesse Addison is adamant that Jermaine Franklin is 'stronger, faster and more focused' than ever, whileLorenzoReynolds claims the American heavyweight is more conditioned than he was against Dillian Whyte.

Franklin - who trained alongside Tyson Fury in the build-up to his showdown with Whyte in November 2022 - will return to the ring on Saturday night to face Anthony Joshua.

Franklin's current physique has been the talk of the town ahead of his showdown with AJ at the O2 Arena - with reports claiming the 29-year-old has lost 28lb ahead of the biggest fight of his career.

So, with the above in mind, Sportsmail caught up with Franklin's coaches Addison and Reynolds to discuss the American's dramatic body transformation ahead Saturday's bout.

Reynolds told Sportsmail: 'We are really happy with his [Franklin's] weight. We are happy with his commitment. We are looking forward to an awesome fight this Saturday.'

When asked what the secret to his weight loss was,Reynolds said 'time'. He said Franklin has had longer to prepare for his fight against Joshua than he did for the Whyte fight in November 2022.

Reynolds said: 'Honestly, we've had more time to prepare for the fight. With the Dillian Whyte fight, we only had a few weeks. We made the best of it and we didn't make any excuses but this time around we had more weeks to prepare.

'This time we went down to a good state that has a lot of heat in Florida. We took advantage of every training opportunity. We had a very focused Jermaine.

'We put him on a strict diet. He answered every test that we gave him. So we are expecting for him to do great on the final exam on Saturday night.'

When asked what Franklin's diet consisted of,Reynolds explained how the American heavyweight had been 'juicing' in the mornings instead of having a meal.

Reynolds said juicing had been the secret to his weight loss and praised the breakfast supplement for providing Franklin with all of the vitamins and minerals he needed to get his day off to a good start.

Reynolds went on to speak about how Franklin's weight loss had helped improve hiscardiovascular system and conditioning.

Reynolds said Franklin was lacking fitness heading into the Whyte fight - which he lost115-115, 116-112 and 116-112.

However, Franklin's strength and conditioning coach is confident that the American has 'premium gasoline in his fuel tank' this time around.

He told Sportsmail: 'The Dillian Whyte fight showed us that he has a lot of heart. A lot of fighters lack heart but Jermaine showed that he had a lot of heart. But, the conditioning was lacking.

'So, we went back and we made his weakness his strength. We had time to do that so we are confident in his cardiovascular system. We are confident that if the fight goes the distance, he has a lot of premium gasoline in his fuel tank.'

Reynolds went on to explain how he was beating Franklin in their running drills at the start of their camp but admitted the 29-year-old is now running laps around him.

There have been concerns that Jermaine's weight loss could affect his power. However, Addison is adamant that Franklin is 'stronger, faster and more focused' than ever.

When asked whether Franklin's weight loss will impact his power,Addison said: 'Absolutely not. If anything he has gotten stronger.

'He's gotten faster and he's more focused. We feel like the weight loss will be an advantage for Jermaine against Joshua.'

Eddie Hearn has also praised Franklin for his weight loss and said the American was walking around with a 'six pack'.

'You've got Jermaine Franklin here, who is about 28 pounds lighter than he was against Dillian Whyte fight.

'He's now got a six pack and this is what happens when you're fighting Anthony Joshua. It's a chance for him [Franklin] to catapult himself in the world of the heavyweight division.

'For AJ, there is bundles of pressure. He's back at the O2. He hasn't boxed there for seven years. It's where it all started for his debut and it's a must win fight.

'I want to see the destructive Anthony Joshua that we all love to watch. But, Franklin is going to put up a tough task.'
