After Deontay Wilder expressed displeasure, Tyson Fury has also criticized Anthony Joshua for his next opponent Jarrell Miller.

Joshua, the holder of WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight belts, confirmed he will be making his US debut against fellow unbeaten Miller at the Madison Square Garden come June 1.

However, Fury has continued to accuse Joshua of dodging him and Wilder as he revealed what had happened when he sparred Miller.

“I was back home in Morecambe and I needed a sparring partner,” the ‘Gypsy King’ told Michelle Joy Phelps (as quoted by rt.com).

“The first person that sprang to mind was Jarrell Miller, I thought he’ll be good sparring for me.

“Obviously I wasn’t a world champion at the time, he came over to Morecambe and we sparred at a local gym.

“I’m not going to go into too much detail, but I hired him for two weeks sparring, I ended up sending him back home after one day sparring.

“I put him down seven times in the first spar and I sent him home packing back to the USA.”

Miller, who has won 20 off his 23 fights within the distance, has fought some known names like Gerald Washington, Tomasz Adamek, Johann Duhaupas, Fred Kassi, and Mariusz Wach to name a few.

But never someone like Joshua. Do you see him proving Fury wrong? Let us know in comments below.
