Joshua vs. Miller – What’s Going on?
Miller has been victorious in his recent matches including two knockouts over Tomasz Adamek and Bogdan Dinu. He has quite a streak and no losses, only one draw. Ok, Miller is unbeaten. But has he faced an opponent with the pedigree of Joshua? The 30-year old does have the size and strength that could prove a challenge for the undisputed champ.
I’m not being biased, but Miller talks a lot. However, he hasn’t yet been afforded the opportunity to prove that he fights the same level he talks. Miller trash-talked Joshua saying that he’s untested. He then added:
“We’ve seen it in the Joseph Parker fight. He was not aggressive. After the Klitschko fight, that was his best performance against an older guy who had had two years off and lost the fight before to Tyson Fury. If you look at the guys he’s fought they don’t really have an amateur background. He didn’t look that great against them either.”
Wait, there’s more. Oh god, I loved this response. Here’s what Joshua had to say:
“You’re like a broken record. We’ve heard your story a thousand times. Tyson Fury knocked you out seven times in sparring. You’re a fat fool. I’m the champion. I’m deadly serious. Jarrell can’t beat me. Not even on his best day. Look at his face, I am going to reconstruct his face on June 1.”
“I’m really looking forward to the challenge. I’ll do the job, I’m a good boxer, a heavy-handed boxer and I’m going to reconstruct his face and body. I am going to be your surgeon and give him a new makeover. I am going to knock him clean out, 100 percent.”
Here’s how both boxers stand before the match.
Anthony Joshua vs. Jarrell Miller
We will get to see a host of British stars and top US names in the event. Hearn wants the fight to be a battle between fighters from both sides of the Atlantic.
Regarding specifically who will be on the show, it’s not confirmed yet. But I’ll be updating this article every time an official announcement comes out. As for possibilities, Hean has stated that he likes to see a lot of matches happen in the undercard.
For example, Katie Taylor is currently in possession of two of the four major world titles, which means that AJ is not the only undisputed champion in the promotion. The top female boxer has it all. Hearn wants to see her get through Rose Volante. After that, he’ll schedule a unification match against Delfine Persoon for all the belts.
Back to our main event of the evening, Anthony Joshua is set to make his US debut when he faces off against Jarrell Miller. Miller has beaten four former world title challengers in Gerald Washington, Mariusz Wach, Johann Duhaupas and Tomasz Adamek. Nonetheless, he’s now facing a holder of four championships at once, someone who’s made a name for himself in the boxing industry.
Heavyweights are always exciting, as all it takes is one big punch and asleep goes the opponent. There are so many questions that need answers. How real is Big Baby? What would Miller do when he comes face to face with AJ? Will Anthony lose on his US debut? Only June 1st can give us the proper answers we’re looking for. As for the time being, here’s all we know about the event and the possible undercard:
- When: Saturday, June 1st, 2019.
- Where: Madison Square Garden, New York City.
- TV Channels: Sky Box Office (UK), DAZN (USA).
Hearn hasn’t made it clear about who’s going to be included on the card. However, he hinted out a few. Here’s what we have so far.
