Anthony Joshua and Eddie Hearn
Eddie Hearn, the promoter of former heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua, has voiced his concerns about the boxer's dwindling star power.
In a recent interview, Hearn admitted that Joshua's upcoming fight against Jermaine Franklin will be a pivotal moment in his career.
Joshua, who has suffered two consecutive defeats, has lost his world champion title and the popularity he once commanded. Hearn attributes this to a combination of factors, including Joshua's lack of charisma, recent losses, and the emergence of other heavyweight stars like Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder.
However, Hearn believes that Joshua still has the potential to turn things around and regain his star power. The upcoming fight against Franklin, with a new trainer and a smaller team, presents a crucial opportunity for Joshua to prove his worth.
Fans and critics alike will be eagerly awaiting the outcome of this make-or-break fight."
