Heavyweight contender Jermaine Franklin, the last man to face both Anthony Johsua and Dillian Whyte, is already convinced of the outcome.

Whyte won a very close majority decision over Franklin last November, while Joshua had some issues but ultimately picked up a clear twelve round unanimous decision win over Franklin in April.

Joshua and Whyte will collide for a second time on August 12 at the O2 Arena in London.

Back in December of 2015, Joshua stopped Whyte in seven rounds of action. The victory avenged a loss that Joshua suffered at the hands of Whyte in the amateurs.

While promoter Eddie Hearn is anticipating a fire-fight, Franklin believes Joshua is going to win in a dominant manner.

“I think Joshua will beat Whyte. I don’t think it’ll be a hard fight for Joshua. It was a little harder for Joshua to punch me cause it’s harder for bigger guys to punch down than it is for shorter guys to punch up, but you know when you’re taller, some of those shots are easier to get off. Yeah, I think beats Dillian," Franklin told IFL TV.

Joshua's win over Franklin snapped a two-fight losing streak at the hands of unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk. For his part, Whyte's win over Franklin helped him bounce back from a knockout loss at the hands of WBC world champion Tyson Fury.

Should Joshua win the upcoming rematch, he would move ahead with a potential showdown against former WBC champion Deontay Wilder, which is being targeted to take place on a date in December in Saudi Arabia.
