Heavyweight contender Jarrell Miller (17-0-1, 15KOs) has shredded the upcoming title fight between Deontay Wilder and Chris Arreola, which officially got announced on Monday.
Wilder (36-0, 35KOs) was scheduled to face mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin on May 21st in Moscow, Russia - but the Olympic gold medal winner failed a pre-fight drug test.
The World Boxing Council allowed Wilder to make a voluntary defense of the belt and he selected Arreola (36-4-1, 31KOs) for July 16th in Birmingham, Alabama.
Miller expects the fight to be a one-sided demolition for Wilder. He doesn't give Arreola more than a handful of rounds to stay in the fight before he gets knocked out.
"Man nobody gives a **** about no Wilder and no Chris Arreola," the New Yorker told Sky Sports. "That is why more than 80 percent of America don't know who the hell Deontay Wilder is.
"When they talk about Deontay Wilder, they say: 'Who is that guy who has got a belt from Alabama?' They know him as the wild guy and that is just the reason why people in his own country don't know who he is. The opponent he is fighting, is a washed-up Chris Arreola. The only people that care about him are the Mexicans in California and they are going to fight in Alabama, so I don't know how that is going to go?
"If they wanted someone to come in last minute, they should have got [Bermane] Stiverne. Stiverne has been in the gym, he was WBC (champion). I think he deserves a rematch. That would have been something worth watching. Nobody wants to see that crap."
