Boxing great Carl Froch has questioned whether Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller is a worthy opponent for Anthony Joshua ahead of their fight on June 1.

Froch, the former super-middleweight world champion, was speaking to Love Radio when he was asked about the fight between the two.

And, despite the build-up to the bout making headlines for the bad blood the two allegedly share, ‘The Cobra’ thinks the result can only go one way.

“I hope it will be a good fight but I don’t see how it can,” said Froch.

”I don’t want to take too much away from Jarrell Miller, but he’s not really fought anyone. I know he’s unbeaten. He’s knocked a few out but he looks a bit big and stiff to me.”

AJ, who is now coached by Froch’s former mentor Rob McCracken will be making his bow in the States in this fight, with all of his previous bouts having taken place in his home country.

Froch, however, does not believe that this will be an issue for the Londoner.

“Joshua is a great fighter. He’s the world champion. He’s got every belt except the WBC, which is the one Deontay Wilder has got. That’s the fight everyone wanted to see. But this fight ticks the box of going to America and showcasing his skills which is good.

“I think the reason they didn’t put Baby Miller on at Wembley because people wouldn’t have bought into it so much. It’s a decent fight. It gets him shown in America and there are still big fights out there for him.

“From Eddie Hearn’s point of view, it’s a good business move."

If Joshua wins this fight, as expected, then he will have an eye on one of the bigger names in the heavyweight division, with both Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury potential opponents at some point in the future.
