Joshua: “Slow Punching” Miller “Better Off In NFL”
While Jarrell Miller would control the conversation for most of Tuesday’s press conference, Anthony Joshua ensured he had some pointed barbs towards his June 1st opponent.
“He’s slow, he’s not a puncher,” Joshua said of the man challenging for his unified heavyweight titles. “Like a gorilla back, ex-kickboxer, probably would be better off in the NFL, substance abuse, got caught on PEDs. I can’t really respect that, so talk is cheap. You know? And I’m just gonna back it up in the ring, so yeah, I don’t really have much to say.”
While Miller blasted the quality of competition Joshua has faced since turning pro in 2013, Joshua espoused the idea that the Brooklyn born Miller is just “jealous.”“With me, I think stats and facts don’t lie,” Joshua said. “Records have been broken here … my stats don’t lie, when you compare records. So it’s just jealousy, in my opinion. Just hate, for no reason. I respect my opponents. If they disrespect me, they get the worst of me as well, so it’s just negativity and hate in my opinion.”
