Deontay Wilder makes bold predictions for Anthony Joshua vs Jarrell Miller fight

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder Press Conference

Anthony Joshua is set to make his United States debut against Jarrell Miller at the iconic Madison Square Garden on June 1, with WBA, IBF, IBO and WBO belts all on the line.

AJ is the clear favourite to win the upcoming encounter, although the Brit will be pragmatic in his approach and will not take Miller lightly, that too, in his own yard.

However, arch-rival Deontay Wilder will be a keen observant of the proceedings as he himself is eyeing a contest against Joshua at some point in the not-so-distant future.

The WBC champion has delivered his verdict on the AJ v Miller showdown, making some strong predictions for the summer bout.

Wilder asserted that he thinks Miller has the calibre to outlast Joshua and secure the heavyweight titles, with not many giving 'Big Baby' the respect he deserves, despite his impressive record.

When asked who he sees winning the fight, Wilder promptly replied: "You know, I can see Miller winning."

But, at the very next second, he admitted it could be an even contest.

"I can see it going both ways," added the American.

"I can see Miller tiring him out. And if Miller can tire him out like Klitschko did, I can see Miller finishing him.

"I don’t know about knocking him out, but probably beating him on points. I can see a knockout too given the fact that it’s the heavyweight division, but Joshua’s very cautious, he’ll try to stay away from you.

"It’s a good fight, let the best man win."

The 33-year-old revealed his future plans, and concluded by saying: "I want Joshua, of course I want to unify the belts.

"They know what we want, it’s easy, it’s easy to make that fight. They know what they want, but until they can swallow their pride like I did before, we’ve just gotta do what we gotta do.

"I did it, you didn’t wanna go through with it, but I did it. Now it’s time for you to swallow your f***ing pride and give the world one of the best heavyweight fights."

If Miller wins, it is believed that there is a rematch clause in the contract agreed with Joshua while incase of the British ace registered the victory, Wilder will surely be in his line of sight next.

Nonetheless, it is assured that either one of Joshua or Miller will witness their undefeated run coming to an end come early June this year.
