Jarrell Miller Looks Forward To Possible Face-Off With Joshua

Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller expects to once again come face to face with WBO, WBA, IBF, IBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

Both heavyweights will be ringside on Saturday night at New York's Madison Square Garden, when Rocky Fielding defends the WBA "regular" super middleweight world title against Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez.

 "Yes, I'll be there in attendance," Miller told Sky Sports. "If it does [paths cross], it does. But if he's going to the fight, then I think it will. We'll make a scene of it. Who knows? He's in my backyard. I'm not worried about AJ at all."

Miller is likely fighting again in January, possibly in a bout with WBA "interim" champion Trevor Bryan.

While Joshua is scheduled to defend his world title at Wembley Stadium on April 13. The opponent has not been finalized, but the Dereck Chisora vs. Dillian Whyte rematch winner is the slated frontrunner to get the opportunity.

If the winner of that fight fall through, Miller says he is not going to be used as a pawn. 

"Nah, definitely not. I'm not going to be a standby for anybody, as a play toy," said Miller.

"I've been fighting for a long time, I want my due. I want my respect. I want a proper training camp, so it can't be last minute, and it's got to make sense. He fights the 'Big Baby', and that kind of name that I bring, and the noise that I bring, it's going to cause a sold out arena.

"For AJ, it's a must, do or die. He's been a world champion for over a year now, and he has said he wants to fight in America, and then he changes his mind. He's not really trying to take any crazy risks right now. I get it, but you can't be called world champion forever, if you're not fighting around the world, and America of course."

If Bigbaby sheds about 35-40 lbs of lard, he can give AJ a run for his money.

The butterfly really thinks himself a bird. Go fight a top 10 opponent and quit fighting bums

Hearn sets up the obvious and shows his desperation. If Hearn is serious about promoting Usyk as a heavyweight he should stick him in there with limited but strong Miller and Joshua should wait for his slot with the big…

[QUOTE=Ake-Dawg;19350432]He didn't KO Parker so I suspect he won't KO Miller.[/QUOTE] Parker stayed on the outside boxing him most the night. Miller is to fat to move away like that. Ko it is

[QUOTE=_Rexy_;19351320]Well it’s not like he’s fighting Fury or Wilder though.[/QUOTE] Check his record against Fury’s & Wilder’s. AJ has consistently fought harder opposition. He’s also the cash cow. I don’t particularly care who of these three are ranked higher but…
