Signed and sealed.
Let the moans commence.
Personally think it is better fight than a rematch with Pudding Whyte, Pudding Parker or Pudding Takam.
The Whyte fight has happened and the result isn’t going to change. I don’t think Miller has a chance, I make Joshua 1/10 on at least but at least it’s a new face. His 5th out of the top 10 (excluding him). Wilder/Fury/Ortiz/Kownacki and Pulev who’s probably next are the rest he hasn’t faced.
Not fussed about watching as don’t rate miller but the fight makes sense...
I actually like this fight, I think Miller is a live dog here, gonna put some money on him. I don’t care what anyone says about Miller, but to fight such a heavy man who is technically not that bad and can hit hard is one hell of a tough task.
Easy win for a AJ and makes sense to get a foot in the American market. But why all thid embarrassing bu ll**** these last few months? I think they did it to build interest etc and AJ has lost a lot of credibility over this, especially since the fury/wilder fight. Genuinely don't think anyone cares who he fights until he fights wilder or fury
I’m cool with the fight.
I think Miller could be a real problem for AJ if he can take his power and keep coming forward and working the body. I’m not saying he beats AJ, but if he did, it wouldn’t shock me in the slightest.
Whyte is a complete and utter idiot for turning down £5 million. Miller is VERY undeserving.
Pulev, who has done next-to-nothing to warrant a shot at AJ, is more deserving - and it's a better name on AJ's resume to have.
Miller is complete and utter dog sh*t. I'd laugh if he KO'ed AJ.
I'm just glad that those two money grabbing tossers have lost the Wembley date (and I'm not talking about Tyson & Wilder!).
Underwhelmed if i’m honest. It doesn’t excite me at all. AJ’s going to really hurt him and even though Miller is clearly a durable lad, he’s going to absorb a lot of straight right hands from AJ who punches like a freight train. Miller doesn’t carry that single concussive punching power, he walks his opponents down but he’s going to be eating some big uppercuts.
I understand the reasoning behind the fight in terms of the commercial brand. It makes sense for AJ and he can make a big statement.
Yeah, it's a rubbish fight but you're right about it being someone else and at least AJ is fighting out of the UK for once.
aj should win by ko but I wanted to see this fight.. miller needs to lose that 0
Worth just to have AJ fight in the States I guess
I don't think Miller will take the fight.
I’d rather see Joshua fight Whyte again in a couple of years. Whyte is still gaining momentum and I wouldn’t really want to see it derailed with another inevitable defeat to Joshua. I’ve no problem with Miller if he can’t make Wilder or Fury. And it will be interesting to see how he copes with fighting in front of an away crowd.
This is of more interest than the Whyte rematch and also builds AJ in the US.
If he can’t make either Wilder or Fury because of the Fury- Wilder rematch then this is the next best option.
