Heavyweight contender Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller 23-0-1 (22) believes his size, strength and power will present unique problems for WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua 22-0 (21) when the pair clash at New York’s Madison Square Garden on June 1.
The 300-pound American behemoth is full of confidence after his world title shot was officially announced this week.
“Of course not, never,” said Miller to Sky Sports when asked if he could be compared to previous Joshua opponents.
“I’m a guy that’s actually bigger than him. AJ has an inch or so in height, that’s about it, but activity and boxing IQ, good head movement and defence.
“I can throw a lot of punches and have a heart of 10 lions. I’m totally different.”
The 30-year-old from Brooklynite said he will be looking to pressure Joshua, 29, from the opening bell.
“That’s the main goal — run him over. I’m not playing no games with AJ. There’s no way to prepare for me. There’s no right way for preparing for a person like me,” Miller added.
Miller compared Joshua to British favourite Frank Bruno, who was twice knocked out by Mike Tyson when he crossed the pond to face ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’ in Las Vegas.
“Like a Frank Bruno, he came in, he looked good, and got flattened,” said Miller.
“Tune in. ‘Big Baby’ Miller is not just the American champ, he’s the English champ, he’s the people’s champ.
“If you want entertainment, you’re going to get it, and this is a fight you need to see.”
