It did not take long for tensions to rise at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, as Jarrell Miller would shove Anthony Joshua at the start of the press conference for their June 1st title fight.
The unified world heavyweight champion would somewhat take it in stride, but would match the aggression of the Brooklyn born boxer, nearly inciting a brawl between the boxers, their camps, and Madison Square Garden security.
While it would not end up in a “Gulotta-Bowe” level of brawl, both fighters would spend the rest of the press conference sniping and insulting one another, even referencing their mothers, as both men would attempt to get a psychological edge four months prior to fight night.
Miller, once things were calmed down, would explain that he is more than ready for the challenge of Joshua, expounding on a stalker-like obsession with the unified champion, as he made Joshua his cellphone wall-paper, and admitted thoughts of beating the former Olympic gold medalist fill his mind at a constant basis.
Joshua would be less verbose than his June 1st opponent, claiming to FIGHT SPORTS after the presser that Miller would not longer be relevant beginning on June 2nd.
