Whyte Says Joshua Was a 'Punk' in Jarrell Miller Confrontation

DILLIAN WHYTE called Anthony Joshua a “punk” for the way he handled a confrontation with American heavyweight Jarrell Miller.

WBA, IBF, IBO and WBO heavyweight champion Joshua was at a press conference in New York with September opponent Alexander Povetkin when Miller stormed the stage last week.

The American bruiser taunted Joshua about fighting Povetkin before saying his mum “looked good in a Sunday dress”.

Joshua squared up Miller after telling him to “shut the f*** up” in a heated exchange before security pulled them apart.

But ahead of his clash with Joseph Parker, Jamaican-born Whyte said: “Joshua is a punk because if he had said that about my mum I would have just gone off there and then.

“Somethings I just wouldn't do and one is disrespect another person's mum. That's below the belt.

“Where I'm from in Jamaica, people get killed for that.

“If you said that about someone's mum, they will kill you, 100 percent.

“As a child in Jamaica I've seen people get hurt badly for saying something bad about someone's mum. You get killed for that, literally.”

I'm not an AJ fanboy but a 'punk' is exactly what Dillian Whyte is. A shyte boxer that scrapes through just well enough to get bigger fights.
