Jermaine Franklin: I Felt Like I Got Robbed

Jermaine Franklin felt he defeated Dillian Whyte despite not getting the decision on Saturday.

“I mean, I felt like I got robbed,” Franklin told DAZN’s Chris Lloyd while they conducted a post-fight interview in the ring. “I felt like I done enough to [win], to [get] the decision. I felt like I won the earlier rounds, so you know, I just felt like I got robbed on the decision.”

The win for Whyte allows him to fight Anthony Joshua next year more than likely, but Whyte looks old, and pretty much done. Never a fast fighter, now Whyte is void of combination punching.

“I mean, I had a seven-week camp. I did what I what I could,” Franklin explained. “You know, I’m down for a rematch if they’ll give it to me. You know, but like I said, I felt like I won. I felt like I got robbed on the decision.”

Despite Franklin wanting a rematch it looks as though Whyte will look to get more finical fruitful options. Franklin though won in a loss, as he becomes a formidable contender with a world-class showing, who is now on the radar of most fight fans, and he knows it.

“I mean, I proved a lot of people wrong,” Franklin furthered. “You know, I prove people wrong every day. This what we do. A lot of people just look and they judge, but a lot of people won’t have the heart to step in here and fight me.”
