Anthony Joshua Vs Miller

On June 1, Brit anthony Joshua wollen make his long-awaited debut bei the U.S., and he wollen be matched up against ns best trash-talker in the heavyweight division, Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller.

Miller talks a helluva game but hasn’t yet been afforded the opportunity zu prove that fights at die same level that talks. Weist Madison Square Garden, he wollen be able kommen sie prove naysayers wrong und send a message of posivity to all die big-boned citizens in our nation.

The 300-pound Miller stop a 23-0-1 (20 KOs) record and will stride kommen sie the ring as his promoter Dmitriy Salita beams proud — Salita, but of course, believes an the brooklyn born pugilist … yet pundits space holding a mixed bag von opinions regarding Miller’s chances. He merely hasn’t to be put an with a fighter almost as talented as die 22-0 (21 KOs) Joshua, they’ll phone call you.

But ns 29-year-old AJ, a multi-belt titlist, hasn’t fought such a massive einer who tun können throw crazy volume punkt him.

Yes, there is a spirited debate regarding who wins Joshua vs. Miller, and how.

Chew on this takes native pundits while we count under to the June 1 faceoff, which wollen screen top top DAZN:

Hamza Ahmed, analyst, “Joshua zu sein the clear favorite an this fight. He has ns pedigree, the experience, the know-how, the technical advantages, and we understand more of Joshua 보다 we do von Miller. There’s ausblüten question clues around huge Baby, however he does host one ace end Joshua and that is he has actually a better engine. He deshalb has less wear und tear and comes forward v a purpose. But kann sein he take a shot? does he have the X-factor zu catch und shock Joshua? does he oase enough dynamite kommen sie send Joshua back to that dark ar he visited against Klitschko? miller weighs over 300 pounds, however he’s never been fight clean on ns whiskers. Ns other point of concern ist Miller loves to get within — that’s whereby he can do his best arbeiten — but ns thing is, Joshua merely loves die inside. It’s home zum his short und compact hooks und uppercuts.

I don’t think Joshua’s power zu sein all ns media renders it out kommen sie be. I’ve i found it he’s morphing native a come-forward, brute puncher kommen sie a much more patient, back-foot boxer with much more selection on his shots, more patience, much more poise, und this transformation zu sein happening at ns expense of his power. I think if Miller tun können take it zu Round 9-ish still in the hit (not knocked down, v 2/3 rounds bei the bank etc.), he’s got the chance of a lifetime zu discourage/upset Joshua through remarkable workrate und conditioning. However I’m going to stick v my head this time and say after ~ a hard-fought fight, Joshua finds a home weil das his uppercuts on die inside, hurting a brave and spirited Miller and forcing die ref to step an just prior to Joshua’s gas tank begins kommen sie deplete. Mine pick is Joshua TKO in 9.”


Bernd Bonte, executive with mannschaft Klitschko: “AJ zu sein too good und experienced zum Miller. Besides, Miller’s footwork is too slow und his punching power zu sein overrated. AJ within eight rounds by knockout.”

Brin-Jonathan Butler, author: “AJ KO early.”

Robert Diaz, matchmaker, gelb Boy Promotions: “Heavyweights are always exciting, as all that takes ist one huge one and asleep goes ns opponent. The long-awaited debut an the USA zum AJ. How ja wirklich is large Baby? plenty of questions will be answered. Fun fight, as you oase two large heavies in there. Through that said, suppose a sensational debut for AJ as he knocks out huge Baby bei the seventh. Ich can’t wait weil das the post press conference, together that wollen be just as exciting, hahahahahah.”

Lou DiBella, NY-based promoter: “AJ is obviously ns percentage play, but big Baby ist a live dog. If the big boy tun können hurt AJ, hell win. Native a player’s standpoint, wollen get a nice preis on fearbut inside the distance. Mine bet wouldn’t be as heavy as Miller, though.”

Kathy Duva, ceo at taste Events promotions: “AJ, von course! Yes. An extremely easy. Three rounds.”

George Foreman, life legend: “The big Baby zu sein a an excellent body-puncher. If that stays focused on the body, he could drop AJ. Too many rounds zu get a KO. Dafür I lean to AJ winning over 12 rounds.”

John Gatling, analyst, “For starters, this upcoming June tilt ist a very an excellent fight und a great promotion, as we kann already see. Die charismatic, ostentatious Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller was well worth ns trip overseas zum Eddie Hearn kommen sie scoop up und sign bei late 2017. Ich had a chance to size hoch Miller in many means before, during and after his October 2017 face-off at Nassau Coliseum through Poland’s Maruisz Wach, that looked like he’d nur stepped off ns set des 1979’s Moonraker as Jaws. Wach had a lot of the same measurables together Joshua through his 6-foot-7 height und 82-inch reach, and I was curious to lakers what ns game’s version von a BB king would carry out against die long und largely immovable Pole. Fearbut didn’t look good, admittedly, und vowed to nur the welt he’d be all set to end all des the AJ vs. ‘Bomb Squad!’ talk rather emphatically in future performances. ~ wins over Johann Duhaupas, Tomas Adamek and Bogdan Dinu, I’m not convinced he kann sein do that. While styles make fights, it zu sein substance that wins them — an addition to intangibles prefer pedigree and/or strength des opposition. The all decidedly favors the much more nuanced and demonstrably more polished AJ, who came to be both a man and ‘Da Man’ wie man he rose from die depths zu drown long-reigning undisputed champion wladimir Klitschko an April 2017. Joshua is deshalb a far-superior athlete an terms des physical fitness and ring mechanics. I’m guessing ns referee (let’s hope it’s the hilarious steve Willis) will rettung the previous kickboxer somewhere around ns eighth round.”

Jack Hirsch, ex-BWAA president, writer for Boxing News: “Put me an the minority, but ich think that big Baby’s sewage pressure wollen wear AJ down und he’ll stop er late. Miller’s load advantage will play a large role an the fight.

Peter Kahn, manager: “My prediction: Miller’s ideal chances room early. If fearbut can’t uncover a way to bully AJ and close ns distance, providing die best chance to find heavy and clean shots early on (as in the first four rounds), AJ möchte adapt to Miller’s timing and use the jab kommen sie set trost big shots that wollen eventually wear down Miller. Ns athletic Miller wollen need to come with a solid boxing plan kommen sie mitigate AJ’s offense. Ich feel the although we’ll see some beforehand fireworks favor AJ encountered against Dillian Whyte, AJ has the higher boxing IQ and has faced die better level von opposition. The magnitude von the momente will impact Miller more than AJ. AJ von decision or so late stoppage in rounds 11 or 12.”

Ron Katz, matchmaker, stern Boxing: “Very amazing fight. I’m notfall totally sold yet on AJ, although he zu sein a very great fighter. However Klitschko was able kommen sie exploit his defensive weaknesses. Kann sein Miller do ns same? the remains zu be seen. Big guys like Miller always pose problems, especially when they schutz the talent to go along with their size. Males like Tony Tubbs and Buster Mathis were constantly tough outs, and Miller is bigger 보다 both. Müller has notfall fought anyone near die level von Joshua, deshalb it möchte be amazing to see if he kann sein up his game. If Jarrell tun können sustain over the course of die match, he möchte make things quite difficult zum Anthony. It need to be a fan-friendly fight for sure.”

Jim Lampley, Hall of Famer blow von blow man: “I believe Miller is skilled enough kommen sie create a puzzle weil das AJ however doesn’t hit tough enough to beat him. Joshua will festland the more destructive blows throughout and prevail von UD.”

Greg Leon, manager/journalist, “Jarrell Miller von unanimous decision. AJ zu sein the favorite zum a reason, and I i will not ~ be shocked if he clipped large Baby early, yet if that doesn’t, it’s going to be a lang night for AJ at MSG. As impossible as this may sound based on his appearance, Miller zu sein the hungrier fighter und I see ihm outworking Joshua over the distance and resting 320 pounds of ‘Miller time’ top top AJ every chance he gets.”

Frank Lotierzo, analyst, ex-fighter: “AJ, as the odds indicate, have to be a large favorite over large Baby Miller. He does whatever better und is much more technically sound. Stylistically, Miller, being a guy who moves zu his opponent, wollen need a granite chin, because bringing it zu AJ ist near suicide. It’ll be amazing to lakers how Miller reaction after sampling some von Joshua’s stärke to the head und body. I think it’ll go around nine rounds, yet it might go the distance, since my intuition tells me Miller zu sein durable and no joke. Sort des a negative man’s version des the older george Foreman. AJ will win and look good, but it’s notfall automatic for him.”

Kelsey McCarson, analyst, “Miller was a really terrific kickboxer. In fact, ns only 2 losses of his skilled kickboxing career came versus Mirko Cro Cop, one des the far better kickboxers an recent memory. Yet none von these sachen will matt when he fights linked heavyweight champion Joshua an a boxing ring. The 29-year-old from london will oase all the physical und stylistic advantages. He’s a much better boxer. He hits harder. He has die better pedigree. What möchte unfold then möchte be what happens any kind of time a pretty good kickboxer faces a good boxer. Joshua wollen bide his time early on with jabs and pick up the pace danach to prevent Miller what after die middle von the fight.”

Carl Moretti, executive at oberteil Rank: “AJ. Easy. Huge Miller ist just BIG.”

Gabe Oppenheim, analyst, Gabewords: “Joshua KO 10 — big Baby has a good chin but not good enough to take Joshua’s energie all night. Miller fights with the stance of kickboxer. He’ll be out des position, squared-up und susceptible kommen sie a AJ’s shots the moment the erste bell rings. It’ll just go 10 because des Miller’s abovementioned ability to withstand punishment and Joshua’s inactivity bei the zuerst two rounds as he lernen Miller in depth while remaining out von range. Too much is on ns line zum Joshua for him zu charge his enemy early und risk acquiring caught. That hesitation, bei anticipation des a megabout v Wilder or Fury, will make him duller, more conservative. However it’s probably ns correct strategy.”

Robbi Paterson, analyst, based in Scotland: “BIG baby Miller sure is a man-mountain, but hold the … 6-foot-4 males who sweet over 300 pounds aren’t meant to be liven or quick-handed; they have to be limited lumps who come packaged through gassing-out issues, are slow-moving from head to toe und punch v a middle output. Miller rips trost that script. Joshua in his belastung fight looked pedestrian against Povetkin, who lugged dimensions into the runden that contained squatting down zu adjust his height, looping hooks, coming bei at angles und only letting his hand go when he reputed it necessary. Calculated. Povetkin provided Joshua a neu look, und the londoner hardly looked convincing till he clocked die Russian during the seventh with a beautifully timed, brief right hand that spelled die beginning von the end for the Russian just moments later.

But rest assured, Miller’s style should — in theory, anyway — give Joshua’s violation a platform the Povetkin’s didn’t, one to shine upon weil das however lang the fight lasts. Miller will gamble von storming forward, looking zu get up close and unsettle die champion with his physicality und high punch volume. It’s imperative he rolls die dice and employs a game dubbed suffocation. Waiting on die outside would certainly be a identify no-no. However, he wollen be giving Joshua a head start by trying kommen sie play such a game, since with a bit movement here und there and keeping ns Brooklynite punkt range, AJ can catch Miller together he’s forcing the issue. What off this hit from being either a massacre or a compete fight is whether or not Miller tun können withstand Joshua’s power. Every said und done, i expect a bit von both, with big Baby, ~ a gallant effort, crying top top his knee somewhere during die mid- to late rounds.”

Abel Sanchez, trainer kommen sie GGG: “AJ must win. His whiskers have been a question for me, yet I also don’t think we oase seen a well-conditioned, an shape, good weight and determined Miller. I schutz to say it’s a 60-40 fight weil das AJ.”

Lem Satterfield, writer v PBC: “I’m going kommen sie go with the upset. Ich think if Jarrell Miller kann sein smother anthony Joshua und get inside, notfall exhaust himself, he kann win in ugly fight von decision. He wollen get hit, however he will need zu keep die big shots punkt a minimum. Deshalb I’m going with die upset — baby Miller becomes the neu heavyweight champion in his home state, by decision.”

Marcos Villegas, videographer, struggle Hub: “AJ wins via stoppage in around 8-10 rounds.”

Anson Wainwright, writer: “You have to like Joshua. Fearbut ticks a gewächs of boxes: One of the ideal talkers in the sports at the moment, he wollen bring ns heat and make weil das a an excellent sound bite leading into ns fight. In some ways, this can be like wie man Naseem Hamed come to new York and fought kevin Kelley bei December 1997. Miller is a big alt lump und will try kommen sie bring it, but ich don’t feel he has the skill-set to beat Joshua. Early, Miller’s decided weight advantage may allow him to oase the odd success, but ich think Joshua takes ihm to deep water und stops him in the second geholfen of ns fight. Joshua TKO 8.”

And now you … who wins und how, Joshua mit Miller, June 1 in NYC? Talk to me.
