    Cant help but think the whole Miller vs Joshua talk is staged and timed to get Bryan/King to sign on the dotted line. With Miller the only name worth a damn Bryan could potentially fight to make some decent money, is this Hearn/Matchroom simply saying "fight, or we will go another way"?. When looking at the WBA rankings, Miller is Bryan's only hope to get paid.

    Who really care’s miller should be fighting better competition than Bryan anyway, his fat ass needs to take a tough fight not just make easy fights till he gets the aj pay day.

    Like Joshua, Fury, Wilder or Whyte? Quite sure hes got his hand up already. Apart from Joshua, Bryan is the only other path to a world title fight. If the WBA is so corrupt that it hands out titles to such guys, then thats who you gotta fight.

    There’s plenty of other fighters who would be a step up from his recent opponents, the people you just named proves my point why does he belong beside the other names.

    What about a Takam a usyk povetkin a hunter but no this fat **** calls out Dave Allen david price Bryan and Anthony Joshua do you not see what’s wrong with that?

    Yea, it's clear that Miller wants a clear shot at Joshua. That is why he is sticking with Hearn.
    WBA is so broken that guys like Bryan, Oquendo and Charr provide Miller the opportunity to fight Joshua. And Miller is fine taking that path.
    I am certain that Miller would do whatever it takes to get a big money fight. But taking the WBA route is basically a guaranteed shot at Joshua. It's just a waiting game.
    Fighting guys like Pulev in Bulgaria is high risk.

    I think disgusting is too big of a word here.
    Would you really want to risk going to Bulgaria? Especially when Hearn has another fight basically lined up for you?
    But then again, beat Pulev and the next fight is Joshua.

    The risk was big, but the reward was even bigger.

    AJ will be fighting Whyte on April and then Miller in September should he win.

    He already ducked Pulev.
    And Andy Ruiz Jr. was calling him out for a few months last year.
    Both those guys would be steps in the right direction but Miller wanted none of it.

    i say disgusting because it was a title eliminator to get the number 1 spot to face Joshua

    Miller wimped out and Pulev beat another ranked guy like Fury to solidify his rank and should get the shot for winning the eliminator and beating fighters who are actually ranked and Miller walks away fights soft competition and gets a free shot over the guy that really deserves it

    I dont call it disgusting as a shot at Miller but more of boxing politics ****ing up. This is another reason why this sport can be frustrating. The sanctioning bodies actually try to pair fighters to meet to earn a shot and a guy can bypass it and pull his ticket at the deli line and wait to be called to order. This should not be rewarded

    Miller vs. Luis Ortiz would be an interesting fight.

    I would of been worried about taking on Pulev in Bulgaria considering it was him and a number of backers putting the money up. I would of had concerns about getting shafted in the scenario.

    Any word on Manuel Charr-Fres Oquendo saga?

    Oquendo probably gets his title shot when AJ, Fury and Wilder will retire from boxing.

    The idea that Miller ducked Ruiz Jr in anyway is beyond laughable. After 30 odd fights Ruiz best career victory is against an old 32-9 Kevin Johnson if your wondering where the source of the problem is as to why that fight still cant get made. Miller runs into the same problem over and over again with US based fighters, their promoters wont let any of them fight him because they know they will lose. Miller said repeatedly he would fight Pulev anywhere, anytime, just not Bulgaria. As did Whyte. Dont blame either of them.

    Why are you even attempting to elevate Miller with this kind of talk? He's not a very good boxer, can't punch and his resume is awful. There's a long list of names Beyond Whyte, AJ, Fury and Wilder he could fight. Anything would be a step up for him, but chances are he's lose to most of the mid-tier guys out there
