Joshua's unanimous decision victory over Franklin on Saturday night got the Brit back to winning ways following his back to back defeats to Oleksandr Usyk, to whom he lost all four of his world heavyweight title belts.

AJ has a record of 25-3 following his win over the American, which he will hope can act as a springboard to get himself back among the conversation of becoming heavyweight champion for a third time.

Franklin's previous fight before his bout was Joshua was against Dillian Whyte, a fight he also lost on points, and the two Brits could be set to for another fight following on from their 2015 bout for the Commonwealth, WBC International and British heavyweight titles.

Joshua won that fight by TKO in the seventh round, handing Whyte his first professional defeat, with the latter now boasting a 28-3 record following recent defeats to Alexander Povetkin, whom he won a subsequent rematch against, and Tyson Fury in a world heavyweight bout.

The Croatian boxer Filip Hrgovic is next on the odds list at 3/1.

The 30-year-old had recently been seen as the mandatory challenger for Oleksandr Usyk's IBF heavyweight belt, before then being set up with a fight against former unified heavyweight champions Andy Ruiz Jr for the interim title.

Neither came to fruition though, and the 2016 super-heavyweight Olympic bronze medal winner could be the next opponent for Joshua to prove he's still got world title ability.

The Croat, nicknamed 'El Animal' hasn't fought since a win against Zhang Zhilei on the undercard of Joshua and Usyk's second fight, and boasts a 15-0 record, of which 12 of those wins have come by knockout.

Deontay Wilder is has the next shortest odds at 6/1, thought the former WBC heavyweight champions has only fought once since his second defeat to Tyson Fury back in October 2021.

The win did come with a first round knockout against Robert Helenius, taking his record 43-2-1 with 42 of those wins coming by knockout.
