Nigerian-born British boxing heavyweight champion of the world, Anthony Olaseni Oluwafemi Joshua faced fresh verbal fury from his next opponent, as American pugilist, Jarrell Miller talked tough at their first press conference to herald the June 1 fight.
‘AJ’ was put on the defensive, as Miller warned Joshua to expect a hostile reception on his terrain in the United States.
Miller added that he believes Joshua will ‘crack like an egg’ when they resume verbal hostilities in publicity sessions for their New York fight.
The Brooklyn heavyweight is relishing another fiery confrontation with Joshua after their world title fight was confirmed for Madison Square Garden, New York, USA.
Weighing around 300 pounds, Miller says Joshua has never fought anyone like him, and the American intends to make his presence known from the moment the British star arrives in his home city.
Before Tuesday’s resumption, Miller (Big Baby) and Joshua had to be separated as tempers boiled over last year, and ‘Big Baby’ expects to gain a mental edge over the unified champion when they go head to head again, in front of the watching media.
The undefeated 30-year-old American added: “You can definitely expect that. I know he knows what’s coming. I don’t know how much of it he can take.
“I guarantee it, you are going to see him crack like an egg. This is going to be bully season. He’s bullied for all the right reasons.
“This is the boxing business, this is the hurt game, so ain’t nothing humble about this or nothing nice about this game.
“This is about hard work and doing whatever you can do to win the fight. The realness is going to come out. Once that contract is signed, all gloves are off.”
