Joseph Parker beat Anthony Joshua by 1-2 rounds: Jarrell Miller

Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller has made a shocking claim on last month’s heavyweight unification between Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker.

Joshua, defending his IBF, WBA and IBO belts, was taken to the distance for the first time in his career as he clinched a unanimous decision win over Parker, the then WBO champion.

The Brit dominated for most of the fight with judges scoring it 118-110 (twice) and 119-111.

However, Miller (20-0-1) has said that scorecards were partial in local boy Joshua’s favour as he insists that Parker edged it by one or two rounds.

“By far [Joshua sucks],” the unbeaten American told BoxingScene in an exclusive interview.

He added: “Listen, I thought Joseph Parker pulled it out by a round or two in that fight… with the speed, the hand movement and landing more punches.

“But like I’ve said, when you’re fighting a guy in front of his hometown crowd you’ve got to really beat him up.”

He further called out the British champion by labelling him a ‘kitty cat’.

“I’ll take the kitty cat right now, which is AJ. Eddie Hearn needs to let the cat out of the bag,” he said.

Meanwhile, Miller will look to keep him on course for a world title shot when he trades punches with Johann Duhaupas of France on Saturday night.
