    Miller has a very good chin and he is definitely not slow.

    His chin has looked OK so far but let's be honest he hasn't faced anyone that could be described as a hard puncher, so his chin has a big question mark over it and even guys with good chins like Povetkin and Johnson got stopped brutally. Miller better have better than a good chin because Joshua cracks good chins all the time, he needs a great chin to go the distance.

    He's not fast either and lets be honest he isn't going to be dancing around the ring, don't think the ring could take it if he did lol. Miller only fights one way and that's coming forward throwing in volume and hes easy to hit, doesn't bode well for him.

    Miller is a bit too plodding to provide a real threat to AJ. I can see him trying to walk AJ down in his normal manner tasting real power for the first time in his career and having no plan b. Miller doesn't have the one punch power to really keep AJ honest and from then on AJ picks him apart..

    It will either be a tko or Miller stays on his stool...

    Can Miller go the distance vs AJ, yes most definitely.

    Will Miller go the distance, i have my doubts.

    Big exposure and thrilling performance will be at forefront of AJ and his teams mind, as this fight could be springboard to big money fights stateside.

    A boring fight by AJ would be compared to the Fury/Wilder bout, and AJ would compare unfavourably.

    Joshua fans better hope the hell he doesn't, because if Miller can take AJ's power, Joshua won't be the one going the distance.

    Ortiz is far more skilled than Miller.

    I think Miller can go the distance but not like Paker, Joseph spoiled well with a quick jab Miller doesn`t have the ability to do that but I feel he will go the distance because of his thick body, he will be able to absorb AJ`s shots and AJ will be pacing himself because of his bad stamina so he won`t throw enough shots to stop Miller, Miller`s high work rate will tire AJ so he will conserve energy even more and win easier on points than he did v Parker.

    Hearn got Joshua's balls in his pocket.

    He chose Miller because he didn't want that Ortiz smoke and Whyte wasn't about to be fighting for chicken scratch. Fury and Wilder is busy showing Hearn that they can generate just as much money as Joshua. The only reason Hearn is fighting in the US is to try and dampen the Wilder and Fury rematch interest. It won't work because this is Wilder territory.

    I'm not sure Miller can goes the distance - but I'm inclined to say "no".

    At times Miller's game seems to rely on him being able to walk through his opponent's best shots. It hasn't troubled him a whole lot so far - but I suspect there's some heavy hitters in the division (Joshua among them) - that could hurt/stop him for that.

    Toe-to-toe Miller actually isn't the easiest guy to land big/clean shots on. But I did notice in the Wach & Dauhaupas fights that if Miller's opponent is still on his feat after 7-8 rounds - Miller resorts to throwing loose/sloppy combinations. And that gets him hit. I think one of the more glaring problems Miller has is that he's really not a very good combination thrower.

    You have to have Joshua buzzer/hurt, IMO, to even think about standing and trading combos with him. Frankly, I'm not even sure how Miller gets even that far with Joshua because Joshua generates great power from all ranges now and that would make it awfully hard for JM to close down the distance.

    Miller's game isn't bad; it's just not a winning game against Joshua.
