Joshua-Miller: London Press Conference

Anthony Joshua and Jarrell Miller formally announce their June 1st fight from London.

Unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and challenger Jarrell Miller took to the stage in London today in order to hold a press conference announcing their fight, set for June 1. And of course during the presser, Joshua and Miller took the time to exchange pleasantries...

“This is all I know, this is all I do,” Joshua would say. “As I’ve said, I don’t know no football, no rugby, no NFL, no basketball, no kickboxing — I know how to knock people out and beat them up! And all this spirit that this boy over there, talking shit, I’ma strip it from him — every once of spirit he’s got. That’s what I do to people. I’ma strip him of his soul in that ring...

“Look at his face. I’m gonna reconstruct his face on June 1st, and I’m really looking forward to the challenge.

“I’m a good boxer, heavy-handed puncher, I’ve beaten better opponents than any heavyweight out there. And Jarrell, I’m just gonna reconstruct his face and his body June 1st. I’m looking forward to it. So, landlord in The States, a surgeon, I’m gonna be a surgeon in the UK, ‘cause I’m gonna give him a new makeover.”

Then when Miller had a chance to respond to Joshua, he said:

“I’m ready for anything, man. The odds always been against me. Like I said, man, the fans can’t fight for him. That facial can’t fight for him...all that nervousness, all that bullshit hype talk can’t fight for him...

“He’s a sucker, bro...he’s not ready for me.”
