American heavyweight Jermaine Franklin (21-2, 14 KOs) told why he had a skirmish with Anthony Joshua (25-3, 22 KOs) after the fight.
“We exchanged a few words, but actually I was trying to go to his corner to shake hands with his team, but he turned around and tried to play macho and all that. As a result, everything escalated, but this is boxing. We are all ready for war here.
I don’t want to talk too much about this incident, but it really could turn into a fight because I can stand up for myself. I’m just really glad we got stretched before it even started.
At first I didn’t really hear him, but Joshua continued to talk some nonsense, clinging to the words that we exchanged during the battle. After I understood what he was saying, I reacted to it. I thought that he wanted to do the same thing as me – to thank my team, but it turned out that he did not. He kept talking nonsense,” Franklin said.
Note that Joshua won by unanimous decision (118-111, 117-111, 117-111).
