Heavyweight Dillian Whyte has revealed he wouldn’t be surprised if rival Anthony Joshua suffered a shock defeat to Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller in the summer, Sky Sports report.
Whyte and Joshua’s respective camps were locked in negotiations over the past few months discussing a potential rematch, however, Joshua revealed earlier in the week that he now will travel stateside for the first time on June 1 to take on Miller.
The current unified heavyweight champion has been made a heavy favourite for the clash, despite Miller also boasting an undefeated record.
And talking exclusively to Sky Sports, ‘The Body Snatcher’ admitted he personally wouldn’t be shocked if Miller defeated the Brit at Madison Square Garden.
I wouldn’t be surprised if he does beat Joshua.
Joshua has got very gun-shy, and if Miller can absorb his punishment early, and bring it to him late in the fight, then I wouldn’t be surprised if Miller does beat him.
I wouldn’t be shocked. I wouldn’t be surprised at all, if Miller beat him.
Whyte, who has been ordered by the WBC to fight Dominic Breazeale next, then admitted that he would still be open to taking on Joshua in the future if he does lose against Miller.
If AJ loses, I’ll still fight him, because it’s personal with me and him. It’s not about the titles.
If he loses his next 10 fights, I’ll still fight him. I just won’t be taken for a mug, that’s all.
