Anthony Joshua Has Image Problem: Miller

Jarrell Miller says “posh” world champion Anthony Joshua has an “image problem” as the pair prepare to meet at Madison Square Garden on 1 June.

Joshua, 29, will defend his IBF, WBA and WBO titles against unbeaten American Miller.

Miller believes Joshua’s claims of “being a thug” are not true because of his home counties upbringing.

“He is from an area not known for being tough,” Miller told BBC Radio 5 live’s Boxing with Costello and Bunce podcast.

“He is just talking himself up but people love you being real.”

Brooklyn-born Miller, 30, grew up in a “rough broken home” and says he took up combat sports to defend himself after being attacked in the street.

Joshua, meanwhile, was raised in Hertfordshire but, until the age of 14, lived on Watford’s Meriden estate – one of the town’s most deprived areas.

Miller has previously suggested Joshua had benefitted from a privileged route to success, to which his opponent responded by saying, “I got banned from the area I was growing up in because I was getting into too much trouble.”

Miller – likely to be Joshua’s heaviest professional opponent having weighed 22st 7lbs for his last contest – said: “I’m more intelligent than AJ, but sometimes I come across as arrogant because I’m a warrior.” (BBC)
