Miller Wants Joshua In April At Wembley
Jarrell Miller has officially thrown himself into the running to face Anthony Joshua, in Joshua’s April return to Wembley Stadium.
Joining Deontay Wilder, Dereck Chisora, and Dillian Whyte as potential challengers, Miller continued his undefeated pro career with a fourth-round knockout of Bogdan Dinu on Saturday night in Mulvane, Kansas.
“Definitely [Miller wants the Joshua shot],” Miller’s co-promoter Dmitry Salita told Sky Sports. “Jarrell has been very vocal about it.
“I feel that Jarrell is the best American heavyweight. He has really shown tremendous power, speed and ability in the ring, and he’s getting better with each fight. I think that Jarrell’s conditioning and size would cause a lot of trouble for Anthony Joshua.
“Definitely Jarrell wants that fight, and if you look at Jarrell’s career, all the guys that he’s called out, he’s fought them. Rather than just talk the talk, he really walks the walk.”
Salita claims Miller is looking to stay active, wanting a fight in early 2019, then hopefully landing Joshua in April.
“Jarrell’s boxing ability, and his size would be to his advantage in a fight with Anthony Joshua, especially in this stage of his life,” said Salita.
“Jarrell is physically very strong, he’s staying very busy, and as you saw in the last fight with Bogdan Dinu, Jarrell used his size, used his pressure to control the pace of the fight, and his body punching is just incredible. For a heavyweight to be such a dedicated body puncher, as a boxing fan, I don’t think I’ve ever seen that. The combination that finished it was a mixture of head and body punches.”
