JERMAINE FRANKLIN fumed he deserves another shot at Dillian Whyte after he was ‘robbed’ of a win.

The American was on the wrong end of a controversial majority decision verdict at Wembley Arena.

Franklin made his feelings known after the fight, adamant that he deserved to go home with an upset victory.

He said: “I feel like I’ve been robbed, I feel like I’ve done enough to make the decision.

“I felt like I had won earlier rounds. I just felt like I was being robbed in the decision. I had a seven week camp, I did what I could.

“I’m ready for a rematch if they give it to me but I felt like I won, I felt like I was robbed in the decision.

“I’ve proved a lot of people wrong. I prove people wrong every day, we do.

“A lot of people look and judge, but they don’t have the heart to intervene and fight here.”

Whyte, 34, had the right to exercise a rematch clause if he lost but Franklin, 29, was not afforded such a luxury.

But the beaten contender feels he is owed a second fight and Whyte knows it too.

Franklin said: “He knows he didn’t win the fight, that’s how I feel.

“Honestly, as a man, you know when you’re taking an L and you know when you’re winning.

“I know deep down he knows he didn’t pull through with that win so honestly I feel like I deserve another chance.”
