Whyte “Shocked” That AJ Picked “Garbage” Miller
Dillian Whyte is moving on from a potential rematch with unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t looking to land some shots.
Speaking with Sky Sports this week, Whyte blasted Joshua’s selection of American heavyweight Jarrell Miller, who he’s expected to face this spring at Madison Square Garden.
“Miller is garbage,” Whyte said to Sky Sports.
“I can’t believe they’d choose to fight Miller over fighting me. But I get it, it’s a business move. Joshua needs to fight on DAZN in America and Eddie’s under pressure to deliver.
“Miller is the perfect opponent for America. He looks the part, he’s undefeated, he can’t punch, he’s got a good workrate, you know he will talk the talk. He’s a perfect opponent for them. I wouldn’t waste my time going to the fight, I know what’s going to happen already. Six, seven rounds minimum and then [Miller] is going to get knocked out.”
Whyte lost to Joshua back in December of 2015, by way of a seventh round TKO. He’s built himself back up since then, with several top victories over fighters like Dereck Chisora, Joseph Parker and Lucas Browne.
Now, Whyte looks towards a potential return on April 20th, and eyes fellow WBC top challenger Dominic Breazeale. If Breazeale does not happen, Whyte has marked Alexander Povetkin and Luis Ortiz as potential opponents at the O2 Arena.
