Briggs: Miller Can “Test” AJ
When asked if fellow Brooklyn native Jarrell Miller had a shot against Anthony Joshua on June 1st, former WBO world heavyweight champion, Shannon Briggs considered it a possibility.
“[Miller] is a phenomenal fighter, he is a real test for AJ,” Briggs warned Sky Sports as Briggs attempts to get a license to fight in the United Kingdom.
“He is a tough guy. He’s a locomotive, once he gets started it is hard to stop him. He will have to establish the jab early and, if ‘Big Baby’ gets warmed up, it could be a crazy night.
For Briggs, the true test for this fight will come as soon as the bell rings. “[Joshua] is fighting undefeated guys and, only with 22 fights, he is at the top of his game,” Briggs assessed. “I predict this fight like this: It depends on the first round. Whoever is passive will lose.
“This had the making of a great fight because you have a guy who can box and a guy who is a slugger.”
