JARRELL MILLER has told “punk” Anthony Joshua he is making a “huge mistake” by crossing Stateside to fight the unbeaten American.
Joshua announced on Twitter he will make his US debut on June 1 at Madison Square Garden as he takes on 24-0 Miller.
Fans have made their feelings known about Joshua’s next WBA, IBF and WBO world title defences – by casting a disappointed reaction.
However, underdog Miller, 30, warned Joshua and UK fight fans that this title showdown is a “huge mistake” on the unified heavyweight champions part.
Miller said: “AJ is making a huge mistake coming over here to fight me in my own backyard.
“He wants to announce himself on the American stage but all he’s doing is delivering me those belts by hand.
“It’s dog eat dog in the ring and this dog has got a bigger bite, he’ll be leaving New York empty-handed.
“This is the fight that I’ve been chasing all my life and on June 1 I’m going to achieve the thing I was born to do and win the heavyweight championship of the world.
“That punk AJ is standing in the way of my dreams and on June 1 he’s getting run the hell over.”
However, Joshua, 29, has cast his own pre-fight prediction, revealing his plans on “dismantling Miller in style”.
Joshua said: “It has been an honour and a blessing to fight at some of the best venues in the World at home in the UK, not least Wembley Stadium, but the time has come to head across the Atlantic and defend my Heavyweight titles in the USA.
“I am looking forward to taking on another challenge with a good boxer and a brilliant talker, it will be an exciting fight, I will leave nothing to chance and plan on dismantling Miller in style to make my mark.”
