    We all know Miller's style - a come-forward, pressure fighter who uses 300+ lbs of sheer bulk to smother opponents, whilst throwing out quick hands for a man of his size and appears to have a fair amount of durability and an engine in addition to all of that. However, in his fights against Washington and Dinu as examples of fights I have seen involving Miller he was being comprehensively outboxed by both men, before eventually getting to them with his pressure tactics. Joshua is without doubt the better boxer of the two but I assume Miller will still attempt to walk forward to put pressure on him. My question is whether or not Miller will be able to just walk through Joshua's power for the entirety of the fight as he's definitely never faced anyone who can hit as hard as Joshua. What do you guys think? I think this factor alone will determine the course of this fight.

    Absolutely not, will Miller be able to walk through AJ's punches.

    Nobody walks through his punches. Miller will feel each and every one of them as they land from multiple angles, and then he will be seriously hurt very early on.

    June 1st - Rude awakening for Miller and his supporters.
    June 2nd - Celebrations and laughing at @f1ght3rz on the forum
    June 3rd - Back to normal

    i like miller . i think hes good, but hes not good enough to beat joshua. miller has a tough mans chance. to win this fight through will and determination. to will his way to victory to apply pressure close the distance and get them big muscles needing more oxygen. only chance miller has is wearing him down and tiring him out.

    most likely joshua wins this fight with ease , hes faster, more athletic, and more skilled. if joshua power is for real miller might be done early cuz hes gonna be there to get hit no doubt about it . also aj is way better shape. always in good shape. miller slacks gets fat his body is all over the place which doesnt help certain areas to gain a stable foundation to continue to get stronger.

    No chance. The guy has a massive head and Joshua is accurate. Joshua is going to have fun in there.

    Miller is going to last 12 or go deep, will take a lot of shots to stop him.

    I was going to counter your statement with Fury claiming he knocked Miller down seven times in sparring but then that can also be seen as supporting your statement, especially the part where I've underlined above.

    In light of the OP opening question - no I don't think Miller will go forward for 12 rounds but it does make me wonder as to what plan B approach is Miller working on. It's very hard to see Miller winning this one the more I think about it.

    I don't believe Fury on the knockdowns. I saw Wach land flush on Miller several times and all he got back was a broken hand.

    I know you're obsessed with me, i know you have some feelings torwards me, no problemo, but you can laugh at me 24/7, i care as much as somebody is closing the window next to mine. I do not want to hurt your feelings though.


    To the topic:
    We'll see. I think Miller has a good chin and he'll be able to go the distance. If he comes up with a smart plan and will train well in the camp i think he has a good chance to grind Juiceua down in the later rounds after slowing him down with a lot of body shots early. Nevertheless it's a fascinating matchup as Miller is huge and has a very unorthodox work rate. Takam caused Juiceua some problems but Miller is much much bigger than Takam and imo has more pop and better stamina + is working the damn body very accurate. Pedthony Juicuea never faced anyone like that.

    Maybe Pedthony Juiceua will stop Miller, who knows that? I don't know it but i have a different opinion about the fight. Live with it, and don't be as dumb as Aydanm who's obsessed with guys who are having different opinions and he can't let them go. I think he's dreaming like that too.

    Are you talking about the same Mariusz Wach who only has 17KO's from 33 wins? Who's most notable KO is probably a shot Kevin McBride? I wouldn't say Wach is any kind of puncher at the top level, that's no way to judge his durability.

    Though I agree about the Fury knockdowns, you can't trust what Fury says he loves to wind people up.

    All cool mate, only takes one punch and can go either way. I just think Miller is gonna get freshly squeezed by the juicer :)

    No I don't think Miller can take his power, the odd single shot he might be able to ride out if his chin is good but he's far too easy to hit and Joshua lands in combination a lot and is a good finisher.

    I honestly think this fight is a mismatch. I am usually pretty conservative with my predictions in regard to Joshua, said he'd go the distance with Parker, that Povetkin would trouble him early before being broken down, that the Takam fight would go late. But this time I can't see anything other than a stoppage win for Joshua, probably between rounds 3-6, depending on if Miller goes into survival mode or not.

    Miller looks like he has one rock solid cranium, Joshua should be careful where he lands on that thing and with how much force, he might end up the same way as Wach.
