Fury: I “Dropped” Miller Seven Times In Sparring
Fresh on signing a multi-million dollar deal with Top Rank, Tyson Fury has made it known that fellow heavyweight title challenger Jarrell Miller is no match for him.
Speaking with the UK Sun, Fury claimed he dropped Miller to the canvas seven times during a 2011 sparring session in the United Kingdom..
“I was back home in Morecambe and I needed a sparring partner,” Fury said to The Sun about his time working with Anthony Joshua’s June 1st opponent.. “The first person that sprang to mind was Jarrell Miller, I thought he’ll be good sparring for me.
“Obviously I wasn’t a world champion at the time, he came over to Morecambe and we sparred at a local gym. I’m not going to go into too much detail, but I hired him for two weeks sparring, I ended up sending him back home after one day sparring.
“I put him down seven times in the first spar and I sent him home packing back to the USA.”
Fury is still negotiating with WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, for a showdown later this year, while Miller will face unified heavyweight champion, Joshua on June 1st at Madison Square Garden.
