Heavyweight contender Jarrell Miller believes that he’s the perfect opponent for the American debut of IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO world champion Anthony Joshua.
Joshua is mulling his next move, which is going to land on April 13 at Wembley Stadium in London or a date in June at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Miller is tabbed as the frontrunner to face Joshua – if the British superstar decides to fight in the United States.
Joshua’s top choice to fight, is WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.
But Wilder is heading straight forward to a rematch with Tyson Fury, which is likely going to land before the second half of the year is up.
Miller does not believes Wilder is that much bigger than him in name – and he feels confident that his mouth, and his antics, would really drive up a showdown with Joshua in the U.S.
During a press conference last year for DAZN, Miller confronted Joshua and two fighters were pulled apart.
“Deontay is definitely not big in America, he’s a little bigger than me over here but any time they bring up Deontay’s name they bring up my name. For a guy that’s had the belt for over three years, they’ve only just started picking up the marketing and PR behind him,” Miller said to Sun Sport.
“Deontay when it’s said and done, he doesn’t want nothing to do with me right now – that’s a known fact in the States. I’m way better looking than Deontay and I’m much more marketable – I speak very well and it’s a whole selling factor when it comes to me and Deontay. If it happens it happens, but sometimes you have to have your eyes on one set of goals and attack it full blast.
“Anyone with a title, of course I would love, but I’m going to go for AJ because he’s the closest one right now.”
