Joshua vs. Miller: What to expect
Anthony Joshua will be defending his IBF, WBA, and WBO titles against the undefeated Jarrell Miller. The two fighters have been known to get into arguments with each other about whether or not each one grew up in a “tough area”. Jarrell Miller grew up in Brooklyn within a self-proclaimed “rough broken home”. The Brooklyn native says he took up boxing and other combat sports to help defend himself after he was attacked in the streets.
On the other hand, Joshua grew up in Hertfordshire after the age of 14 but before then he was raised on Watford’s Meriden estate, one of the towns most deprived areas. In the past, Miller has suggested that Joshua had a privileged life and was handed a road to success after growing up in Hertfordshire.
Joshua responded by saying that he “got banned from the area I was growing up because I was getting into too much trouble.” Joshua also noted that his hands weren’t scarred from his boxing career but rather from his lengthy experience in street fighting. Despite this experience that Joshua has from street fighting, Miller is likely to be the heaviest opponent Joshua has faced professionally. Miller claims that he is not only bigger but also “more intelligent than Joshua” but sometimes comes across as arrogant because he is a “warrior” The fight between Miller and Joshua will be taking place at Madison Square Gardens: Saturday, June 1st, 2019 at 5:00 PM. tickets are on sale now at sites such as ticketmaster.com
