Heavyweight contender Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller is going to push himself to score a knockout victory when he faces IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO world champion Anthony Joshua.
Miller will risk his undefeated record for a crack at the unified crown on June 1, when he challenges Joshua at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
Their rivalry has been brewing since last summer, when Miller confronted Joshua at a DAZN press conference in New York.
And during their media tour, Miller reignited the fireworks when he shoved Joshua during their kickoff presser.
They traded very harsh words, on a personal level, at each tour stop.
Miller expects a knockout victory when they settle their differences. He believes that he’s going to knock Joshua out in the seventh round.
“Wow, there are so many ways. I don’t like to make predictions, but I’m going to knock him out in the seventh. Hands down, I’ve seen it, I’ve portrayed knocking him out in the seventh round. The combination, I don’t know what punch I’m exactly going to hit him with. I think an overhand right, left hook to the body. But, I do know this, my mental fortitude is way bigger and way better than his,” Miller told Sky Sports.
“This is everything, this is the changing point in my life to get to the next level. AJ was saying something before today, ‘I’m not looking past him,’ he can’t think about the future. But you don’t want to look past anything, you want to focus on that date, you want to focus all your concentration on that man. This is what it’s all about.
“I’m not looking past him, but I know once I beat him, I can help so many other people around me, and countries and communities. I’m never looking past AJ, he’s not going to be looking past me, but boy he’s got a butt-whupping waiting for him.”
