Anthony Joshua has last laugh after being confronted by Jarrell Miller
Joshua and Miller rowed in a hote in Saudi Arabia ahead of their respective fights against Otto Wallin and Daniel Dubois on Saturday night
Anthony Joshua and Jarrell Miller reignited their rivalry with a heated row in Saudi Arabia last night – with the Brit coming out on top.
Joshua was scheduled to defend his heavyweight world titles against Miller in New York in 2019 but the American was dumped at the last minute after testing positive for a cocktail of drugs. He was replaced by Andy Ruiz Jr who went on to stop Joshua in one of the biggest upsets in boxing history.
Joshua and Miller will both feature on the Day of Reckoning super-card in Saudi Arabia this weekend with Joshua taking on Otto Wallin and Miller facing Brit Daniel Dubois. And the pair ran into each other in the hotel on Monday night with Miller seemingly suggesting Joshua won’t fight Deontay Wilder next year in a fight which is pencilled in for March 9.
“What makes you think I’m not going to fight him?” Joshua asked Miller. “You’re not going to fight him, I smell p****,” replied the American. Joshua: “No thats what you would do. I know you and I know who I’ll fight.” Miller: “Do you know how many times I’ve wanted to fight Deontay and he said no? Now you’re talking to Deontay now, come on, bro.”
