Anthony Joshua and Jarrell 'Big Baby' Miller faced-off in an explosive first press conference for their eagerly anticipated summer fight which takes place across the pond in New York’s Madison Square Garden on June 1.
Joshua ventures over to the States for the first time in his career, as he puts his WBA, WBO, and IBF heavyweight belts - plus his 100% winning record - on the line against American Miller, who is also unbeaten with 23 wins and a draw to his name.
As the heavyweight rivals faced off on stage under the eye of announcer Michael Buffer, Miller suddenly flipped and shoved Joshua, which the Brit understandably didn't take too kindly. At first Joshua appeared to remain composed but after a war of words he jumped down off the stage and seemed to go off in the direction of a heckler in the crowd.
The duo then eventually settled down for their scheduled press conference, during which the 300-plus pound challenger proceeded to tell Joshua that he was obsessed with him - quotes via The Independent:
"I was going to let the scallywag go first, as I'm home.
"I'm ready. You have no idea, I breathe, eat and sleep Anthony Joshua. I got a picture of him as my screen saver, on my wall, I wake up and think Anthony Joshua."
Miller would then go on to say:
"I'm ready to go to camp so I can whoop his f***ing ass.
"I don't need motivation, just put his face in front of me. I don't care about the belts. I just want to tear his head of his f***ing body."
When Joshua got the mic, he was quick to fire back at his opponent:
“I'm confident, I'll ram my jab down his throat. For a 300-pound guy, you punch like a p****. The only way you can win is with a lucky punch. June 1, look forward to it.
“Jarrell Miller is a b****. I've been here a few times. I've partied, watched the basketball. I'm the champion. I'm deadly serious, Jarrell can't beat me, not even on his best day.
“He's just a challenger. He can't sell out, it's the first time he's headlining a show.
"I'm the landlord, I'm collecting rent."
Should Joshua triumph in June, and in turn extend his winning streak to 23 successes from 23 fights, he will surely then face one of Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder who are expected to lock horns in a rematch in May, following their dramatic draw late last year.
