    Odds are 1.5 for a Joshua K.O/T.KO.

    For sure will go some rounds but me thinks AJ will want to impress in the US!

    Parker went 12 rounds by circling around the ring. Miller can't do that. Joshua will break him down and take him out around the mid rounds.

    Joshua will be able to take him out in the first second if he wants to, but he won;t as he will want to give the fans what they want, so he will carry him into the mid-rounds and then brutally KTFO. AJ will want to make it look like it was some magnificent glorious battle to take Miller's zero, as after this fight Miller will prove to be poop against anyone of the top 10.

    It's a shame AJ could not grow the balls to fight Wilder or Fury. He will be hoping they both knock lumps out of each other and become a little shopworn before he get into the ring with them with every single aspect steeped in his favour.

    I doubt it, Miller is far too easy to hit and Joshua hit's far too hard and is too good a finisher for me to envision Miller going the distance.

    Even guys known for their durability like Johnson and Povetkin got brutally stopped once Joshua landed. Maybe if Miller is as tough as Breazeale he can last the early assault and make Joshua back off and pace himself but even then Joshua just breaks him down more slowly.

    I think that Joshua will get hit a lot more than he's used too and it just might change the dynamics of the fight.

    I think he will lose by decision so yes, Miller can go 12.

    Miller has a decent work rate and seems to have a decent chin, but he gets hit an awful lot and is pretty heavy footed. Joshua can make this a pretty easy night and just work him over with the jab and follow up with the right hand and I think Millers output will be reduced to next to nothing. I think once he feels the power he wont be as bold coming forward... unless he has a chin like Oliver McCall. I think Miller gets stopped inside 8 in a one sided fight.

    Miller is the second best in the US. Behind Wilder. That in itself should give you an idea of how the fight will go.

    Joshua by stoppage within 6. He will want to make a mark with the US audience that do tune in for Miller.

    If Miller had a better defense or a chin like McCall then maybe you're right but fact is Miller is going to get a hit a lot more than he's used too and more importantly he's going to get hit with shots with far more power than he's used too. Miller hasn't faced anyone you could regard as a puncher, I think once Joshua starts landing we will see Miller's work rate drop.

    We saw it with Takam, usually he comes forward more but vs Joshua once he tasted that power he was on his bike for most of the fight. Problem Miller has is he can't do that he's far too big and slow to try and box, he'll end up in no man's land, too immobile to box and move and too fearful of going right at Joshua.

    AJ and his team wouldn't have rushed to this fight over Whyte if they did not genuinely believe Miller to be an easy days work.

    Miller will get broken down and KO'd mid rounds, if not early. He ain't fought anyone 20% as powerful as AJ.

    And Miller knows this for sure.

    He is there to collect a paycheck, plain and simple.
