Sports broadcaster Dazn has teased the arrival of boxer Anthony Joshua to its live broadcast lineup on April 1.

A hero video follows Joshua in peak fitness ahead of his heavily anticipated face-off against Jermaine Franklin, marketed as ‘A New Dawn’ by the broadcaster’s internal creative team, Dazn Creative.

Showcasing Joshua undergoing a range of treatments – from cupping therapy to acupuncture – to gain a competitive edge, the 60-second showcase shows that the former two-time world champion is prepared to do whatever it takes to mount a thrilling comeback.

Joshua is now ranked as the world's second-best active heavyweight by Box RTec, a website dedicated to providing up-to-date records of professional and amateur boxers.

The big fight is scheduled to take place at the O2 Arena in London on April 1.
