I’m a big Dillian fan, but I think he should agree the rematch as it was closer to a draw than a win.
@Hamdan dillian whyte didn't win mwsh
@Aled Hughes who didn’t win? 🤡
@Hamdan ye and he did not win
@SZ Whyte should've scored a knockdown in the last round, so....
@super sprinter156 What "assumptions", you fool?
Whyte fought well but the scorecards were completely off! How on earth did the two judges award Whyte with the 116-112 points win!!????? I agree with the first judge, the fight was a draw.
I watched that fight near ringside, and it seemed a clear draw to me.I was shocked by the two judges who gave such a wide margin to Whyte 😳
If the one fighter edges out in the championship rounds when you consider it a draw, then the fighter that won in the championship rounds won. That's usually how it works, if Franklin had taken the championship rounds he would've won. Ppl seem to not understand what the championship rounds are for.
@Fergus Welsh and he nearly dropped Franklin in the last round. Bell saved franklin
Dillian won by two rounds in my eyes.
I don't wanna hear no more wicked talk from Shyte! Absolutely shocking. Once again turns up and gives a 50% performance. No grit, no heart, did the same thing in every round & now making excuses about a new trainer. Lazy faker, mugging the fans 😏
Eddie not feeling it today. His mind was somewhere else the whole time . At this point he was working . Couldn’t wait to get out of there
With the recent Dazn/Hearn losses recently, there was no way, Hearn was allowing Franklin to win. He knows the Joshua/Whyte sells more
As a boxing fan I watched this fight live , and to be fare, franklin and whyte was drawing in my opinion right up to the 9th round , it was so close it was unreal , franklin did hit more power shots after the 9th round but didn't connect fully , but I genuinely think whyte was getting more scoring punches after the 9th to secure the points victory, dont get me wrong Franklin did absolutely everything he could do and went toe to toe with whyte and he deserves the credit hes getting , but I believe whyte did what he had to do to get the victory, 💪🥊
Dillian done well with the George foremen cross arm defence. Well done that will serve you well. I thought it would slip as the rounds went on but Whyte kept it together 🥊🥊
Franklin robbed he won by at least 2 rounds , Whyte was sluggish.
introduced for any possible upper cuts
Whyte looked shocked when they said he won that said it all to me Franklin won 7-5 💪🏼💪🏼
Agree.Franklin landed and connected way more.
You're feelings doesn't change the result
next time you should watch the boxing match you talk about. thanks
@Jason Mardonio Meza Uh, no.
I’m a big Dillian fan followed his whole career but im afraid he lost that fight Needs to get back to the body snatcher ways that’s how he gained his fan base and created excitement in his fights
Gone on Eddie let's give the fans what they want Dillon don't want to go into a war with Jermaine Franklin Jr .
@Damon She's more than half that age, so I don't see how he could believe that. Your dad is a nonce, mate.
@Raven Aussie she told him she was 21
@Damon That means your dad is a nonce.
@Raven Aussie left me for your sister
I used to love watching Whyte fight but he appears to have lost that mean side. He was awful against Fury and he wasn’t much better tonight. I do hope he gives one last good performance before he decides to retire.
He can box and is using it. It still there to be super aggressive but wants to use boxing. Let him do what he feels. Needs some support. He always under so much criticism. That my assessment. He just came off a loss n he edged a win.
I honestly think part of his performance was due to Buddy McGirt. McGirt himself said he's never even seen Whyte fight and was giving him terrible advice in the corner. Told him to keep going in with the jab when Whyte was most effective when he was going all-out. And in the last round, he told him not to go for the knockout when that's exactly the opposite of what he should've done.Whyte needs his old trainer back, as McGirt was terrible. It was when Whyte was throwing bombs that he was most effective. Fighters have bad nights, and I'm hoping this was one of them.
Imagine being told your career was on the line when your fighting for your life every time out ,I don’t want title fights as a fan unless its a one belt System , I want Tia see good fights and I think the boxing system the way it is has denied us of that
Eddie sitting there thinking “ I’m not wasting much more money on Dillian”
Whyte clearly loss that fight they just trying to make him relavant again he can't be any top heavyweights...
Who's a top heavyweight tho. AJ? Fury? Wilder? Who else?
Joke scoring. You knew Franklin really had to score some knockdowns or knock him out to get a win on a Earn with Hearn card. Two judges who gave Whyte 4 rounds need their financials to be looked at, 💯 earned with Hearn tonight
The judges must have been blinded by that George Foreman arm crossed style to not give the win to Franklin?Maybe that's what saved Whyte from defeat?
I actually thought the fight was a draw. When Dillian fought to instructions he looked effective; however his punches coming out of the clinches were slow. He showed a vastly improved defence. Stop loading up and Dillian will be a formidable boxer. And finally, Eddie Hearn should stick to promoting and leave the trainer and fighters to to strategise and fight.
When Eddie is with his buddies, he will admit to the fact that Franklin rocked Dillian but he couldn't say it out loud during the post fight interview, he had to back his fighter, they'll laugh about this fight, because they know Dillian lost.
Franklin deserves a rematch.. that was a draw
No you didn't win clearly dillian,how wasn't this a split decision?what a complete stich up on Franklin,how did that judge score it 116 112?
It was. One had it draw. 2 had it 116-112.
Franklin is a tough tough man, he took some heavy stuff and instantly returned it. I want to see the full fight after the hilights. Most think it was Franklin’s win, can’t wait to see. Pleased Dillian got the win, followed him for years.
@Alex Mason no one's hating bro I'm a Whyte fan but Franklin just edged it.
I'm a big Franklin fan, and he done better than expected, but having won 5 rounds at best it wasn't as close as he thinks.
Franklin needs a better promotion team
It was a close fight .. it wasn't no robbery, I had whyte winning by a round or two.
@Buffalo Sports Club a typical X-vid expert 😂 With that analysis you most of got some serious brain damage I hope you'll be ok bud!
In the prefight faceoff, Whyte said to Franklin "I guarantee you won't see 12 rounds" lol
Same as franklin said he would get the ko
Whyte needs to go back to tibbs or forget it.
And he nearly fell down 3 times and nearly through the ropes to get to the 12th Franklin is a joke
It's obvious Dillian doesn't want a rematch from what he said, he knows he got away with this one at worst it was a draw, he don't want the smoke 😒
When does he ever want a rematch except when he loses. Didn't want to rematch Parker or chisora only A.J and povetkin.
Dillon don't want a rematch
The least Eddie can do for the right of the boxing code, the very essence of the good old British guile, give Franklin a go at Joshua next as his fight before white, I mean he did win, and it's quite obvious that dillan won't even consider a rematch, won't even contemplate the rematch, if he won as convincingly as he seems to think then give Franklin the rematch....
Dillian whyte you lost the fight and you know it
Am I seriously suppose to be believing that Dillion Whyte is a top fighter???I've ran out of words..But Eddie always brings the comedy.
How they can be so corrupted and act like it's normal is breathtaking.
Listened to fight on Radio 5. Mcgirt was heard saying to Dillian in the last round don’t go for knockout just jab and move. All the commentary team felt he needed the knockout to win. Eddie needs the AJ fight and made it so if it went to the cards. Didn’t think he could go lower since Conor. This same plodding Dillian is who Fury fought. I think punishment has caught up with him, which is sad.
Dillian grew old in the ring last night.
Dillian looks like this is a pre match conference, Franklin looks like he in a post match conference. Dillian wins.
Great fight to watch… Good win !!!
Franklin was better than i thought but Dillian has started to look like age is catching up with him now
The 1st judge got it right as that was a draw.
Not even a bloody lip or a black eye after 12 rounds. That's a fighter more concerned with defence than offence. He looked shyte being honest. Plodding and slow. The end is near.
Eddie Hearn is Bad for British Boxing 😊
Instead of all this BS coming out of Whytes mouth he should have said what Tank Davis said after he fought Isaac Cruz and the media asked him if he would rematch Cruz and replied: HELL NO!!!!! He made no excuses about levels or being a lion anything else he just made it clear that he didn't want any of that again.
Franklin definitely should of won whyte just took too long to get going
How do all you man know what the scoring criteria is? Can you link me to the governing/ sanctioning body document on scoring fights so I can read and understand
@Iciclesall together do you think dillian landed more punches ? Because thats how boxing is scored. I had it draw. 116 112 way too wide imo
@john oliver Whyte was on the front foot throughout the whole fight, you also got points for being the aggressor, Franklin also was landing a lot of shots on the gloves
@john oliver I still don't think Franklin did enough, though. On top of the minor shots Whyte landed, he landed the more significant shots and finished the last round very strongly.
@Raven Aussie thats not how you score a fight though. Dillian might have landed the most meaningful shots but franklin landed more shots through out the fight. Thats how points are scored
Come on we all know that Eddie pays the judges
I really admire Dillian’s no-nonsense, honesty.Forget Joshua, he’s lost it.
No way is Eddie going to risk Anthony Joshua with Jermaine Franklin in March!!
Franklin was robbed
Bra whyte did not win that fight I repeat whyte did not win that fight there for those judges need to be investigated
Massive fan of Dillion, But no way did he win that fight…!!!
Edward decision rigging hands Hearn What a fkn ROBBERY! I’m not gonna pretend with this
Franklin deserves that AJ fight.
Boxing has become a joke lately disgraceful from the judges wtf is going on with them lately making such bad calls are they being paid off someone needs to investigate this franklin clearly won
Lately? U must b new to boxing. Judges have always been controversial.
They know they must always favour the big ticket fighter. £££ first as always.
it's the Uk bro. If u know anything boxing, you know UK is the most corrupt place for boxing
It’s a big shame how the British referees re killing boxing and robbing non-British of their victories.DILLIAN WHYTE LOST THAT FIGHT FACTS
I mean tyson fury got robbed vs wilder in his first fight in America it goes both ways
Very impressed with franklin , deserved the decision , dillian v AJ at Wembley stadium ? Not for me
Big up dillian....man can ramp.....🥊🥊🥊🥊
Dillian has been a warrior over the years, but he lost that fight and should give Franklin a rematch.
Did he just say Franklin is a top 15 fighter? 😁 If so, after that fight Dillian should be just above him then
After watching that, there should be no interest in the Joshua vs Whyte rematch. There should be less interest in this than the circus fight of Fury/Chisora
Whyte fought fight after fight its took its toll. Over the hill sorry to say no fault of his own, been absolute warrior. Boxing let him down should of had the title shot a while ago. Kudos tho been in the job a while.
I think Franklin just fought a great fight. Dillian still has good fights out there for him. Let's see Dillian fight AJ and or Wilder. Those are huge money fights for Dillian. But to say that Dillian clearly beat and defeated Franklin just isn't true. Ultimately Dillian got the win and now can decide who he fights next but he shouldn't say he clearly won therefore why should he then have a rematch with Franklin.
Draw would've been fair for a rematch but I do think whyte landed the more powerful shots my opinion
Job done 🥊💥
I think Dillian Lost the Parker fight and the 1st Szizora fight. This one should've been a draw.
He was gifted a knock down in round 2 against Parker without that Parker would have won the round and the result would have been a draw on the cards which is the right result my opinion.
Not the Parker fight relax
maybe lost the chisora fight, defo did not lose the Parker fight.
Dillian Whyte vs Jermaine Franklin, boxing score must draw. Because Jermaine was aggressive and able to land a lot of heavy punches almost more than Dillian Whyte's punches.
He lost we all saw it.
1:21 this answer shows dilian is still full on track of his career. It is good to hear to instructions. This man is a problem for Joshua. He ist still hungry and posses the killer mentality still.
Where's the rematch clause Eddie?? 🤣😂🤣
Franklin clearly won that fight..It's becoming a joke now.
This was a good fight, this is the level Dillion whyte should be fighting. He has no business being in there with the fury’s or Wilder’s of the world. But I do enjoy watching him, he’s a great domestic fighter. But world level is something he is not.
I used to think otherwise but i have to agree now.
This was a complete farce!Whyte knew he lost this fight.💥 🤬
The reason Hearn is talking about AJ and Whyte having March fights first is he knows otherwise he is putting a fight on at Wembley with two fighters who just got whupped.
Whytes defensiveness about the rematch talk says it all, he knows he lost, luckily he’s fighting for Hearn on his card. McGirts conversations between the rounds says a lot as well, he knew Whyte was losing
why are you guys all blind?
I would like to see Whyte vs Wilder
Franklin was a clear winner.Defo got robbed.Dillian even looked a tad surprised when they announced him the winner.
I’m a Little Partial to the Brit. I Like Whyte. I’ll say this. It was Close. Someone made a Comment below Which was Spot On. Franklin Hit a Lot of Times on Whyte’s Gloves. Franklin was Active , However He Did Not Show Ring Generalship. He Never Really Controlled the Ring and Whyte Did and That Has a Big Part of Whyte Winning. It was No Robbery at All. Whyte Deserved the Win. Not Really Debatable. Whyte 75-85% Had Franklin Backing Up. That is Huge. You Cannot Give Ground to Your Opponent Like that and Expect the Judges to Side with You. Franklin is a Good Fighter and Can Be Great. He Needs to Hit the Weights and Replace that Baby Fat with AJ Muscle. When He Does that, LOOK OUT!!!
Dillians body's broken down. That was hard to watch
He's been in some real wars, must've taken its toll
His best work was when he stopped listening to McGirt in the last 2 rounds, he's obviously a talented coach but it's a big ask to change and develope your style whwn you're a solid professional and 34, you can't change a fighter that's been in the game for that long. Dillians attributes are his aggression and the fact that he loves a tear-up. Hope they progress going forward. It's actually mad that Dillian criticised Anthony Joshua for trying to box Usyk, then basically did the same thing against Fury and now they are both changing coaches like it's a fucking competion
Mc Girt is trying to preserve Whyte career because his punch resistance is no where like it once was where, Whyte been hurt in every fight any boxer with punching power will sleep him that's why you will never see Whyte fight Daniel Dubois or a Joe Joyce
Nobody ever wants to rematch someone they think they should’ve lost to lol
Never hire the coach who doesn't analyse/watching your upcoming opponent fights
From highlights I see Franklin won.. DW is shot he looked slow ponderous ima
Franklin deserves the aj fight
Eddie, Eddie, Eddie: "I thought 116-112 was a bit wide... but if it was 115-113 why not score it 116-112" what kind of fucked up logic is that? This level boxing is so corrupt now; dodgy decisions abound, months before fights get made, all the toing and froing and nowt gets done and all because of the wonga. It's gone worse than Premiership football.
dilliyan look slow and cant see him beating many fairly...
How can those score cards be so wide? Eddie looking very uncomfortable here. MadnessI fully expected franklins glove to be raised
For me Franklin edged it. No way Dillian won it.
Average size is around 5.5 inches so there a good chance Hearn and Whyte fall under that category.
I think Dilian could be more polite and professional when answering questions 😂Relax, chat shit and etc ... You don't have to talk in that manner...Buddy McGirt - at the first half of the fight, the way he interacted with Dilian... It felt like they didn't have connection together, but in the0 late rounds he was more passionate on giving instructions. Let's see how it goes for DW, but I am still not sure if they can work together for the success. I hope ...It was a bit lame that we could hear Franklin's corner during time out, just once in the 12 round period. Good luck 🤞
I felt the same, didn't seem to take the advice. After the fight he wasn't quick to confirm he'd be continuing with the new trainer, brushed off the question a bit.
Dillion saying I won clearly lol Eddie saying he won coz of the championship rounds..What about the 9 other rounds lol
09:44 "am a lion, am a hunter, am the Bush meat..." Dalian Whyte 😆 😂 🤣
This is getting more like WWE every day all fixed.
Eddie's judges at it again 🙄
For the first time in his career, he is docking a fighter
You mean ducking
Shocking judging 🥸
You might have wanted the underdog to win but whyte won that fight, I would have liked a draw just to see it again but Franklin got beat.
Everyone on about a rematch it’s crazy to have a rematch, if every fighter had a rematch every time it was close on points you would never get to a belt. He could lose next one on points and either Franklin moves off into the sunset when it’s 1-1 or they have 3rd fight and that just eats the best part of 2 years and it’s not like they stadium paydays. Good luck to dillian he’s got the decision and he moves on, he’s done enough grind to get a rub of the green on this one and he’s ducked nobody in his career so I got nothing but respect for him and wish him luck. 👍🏻🏴
Fury Took the body snatchers soul.
all of a sudden he remembered not to swear 10:24
Whyte should never have left Tibbs
Been his downfall I think
😢 Hearn like dam I really know he lost fuck
AJ has 2 fights a year and hearn wants him to fight franklyn and dillian in 2023 😁
Joshua fights just once a year even when he had belts
It was a draw in my eyes, Franklin got Chisora'd by the judges lol
Well. the BBC radio team thought were disgusted at the result. This whole dodgy judges situation needs investigating by the law
Great fight by both fighters! Impressed with Dillian especially as his nephew got murdered during camp for this fight!
@ola Fawehinmi and what does he call his friend Dean. His brother Dean Whyte that happens to have the same last name as Dillian Whyte. He has never addressed Dean as his friend he has always addressed him as his brother.
His nephew did not get murdered. His friend Dean's son was murdered. Get your facts right.
Dillian looks deflated I think he knows he lost the fight so no rematch going to happen dillians a tough man but he'll never be top lion his lack of early childhood skilled boxing's missing
Franklin won that by about 4 rounds 😐
I don't think so. Was really close, but late rounds dw really did better.Don't forget, this was the first time Franklin went 12 rounds in his pro career as I understand. He defo will reflect and improve...Also I didn't like that dazn didn't show much instructions of Franklin's corner. But could hear they are asking him to breathe all the time Lol
What fight were you watching
Yeah back to being a menace, rough him up. Poor decision
