Jarrell Miller: I Fell Asleep During Joshua-Parker, My Kids Did Too!

Heavyweight contender Jarrell 'Big Baby' Miller (20-0-1, 18 KOs) is hoping to become the next challenger for IBF, WBA, IBO and WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs).

Miller's name is being mentioned as a strong candidate to fight Joshua, if the British superstar makes his American debut in the summer.

Joshua was in action last Saturday night at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, when he won a twelve round decision over Joseph Parker to add the WBO title to his collection.

Fans were not pleased with the lack of fireworks, as Joshua went the full twelve round distance for the first time in his career.

Miller was far from impressed with the fight or Joshua's performance.

"He's not as powerful as he thinks," Miller said to Sky Sports. "I did not enjoy it. I fell asleep and my boys woke me up. Then my boys fell asleep and I woke them up.

"I thought Parker won but UK fans will think differently. Parker threw more punches, was more active, had a better jab. Joshua was getting hit by terrible stuff. Parker wasn't the most powerful but he was tagging [Joshua], and hurt him."

Should Miller overcome Johann Duhaupas later this month at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, he would love to face Joshua next.

"Hell yeah, I will welcome him to New York. We can make the fight happen," Miller said.

"He is definitely taking [American fighters] lightly because he had a good experience with Charles Martin. It's hilarious. Who have I fought to earn a title shot? Who did AJ fight to earn a title shot? Hilarious."

According to Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn, Miller is a real possibility for the near future.

"Jarrell Miller is a real possibility. He's a threat. He's got a great engine, he's got great work-rate as well and he's confident that he beats Anthony Joshua. We feel like we need to go out and make a defence in the US," Hearn said.

Miller is not a new Mike Tyson. Not even close.

Truly, he slept all through the fight and while dreaming he saw Parker KO'ed Joshua. What is Jarrell smoking?
