Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller has praised heavyweight Tyson Fury ahead of his clash with fellow Brit Anthony Joshua in June, the BBC report.
Joshua, the unified world heavyweight champion, announced his clash with Miller earlier in the week, with the bout set to take place at Madison Square Garden on June 1.
Miller is currently undefeated in his 24 professional bouts, winning 23, but is heading into the clash as a heavy underdog.
Meanwhile, Fury, who made a remarkable comeback to the ring last summer, is expecting to take on rival Deontay Wilder for a second time following their controversial clash back in December.
And talking to the media, Miller was quick to heap praise on the self-proclaimed ‘Gypsy King’, slamming Joshua in the process.
In my eyes, [Fury] is somebody who has been doing good in and outside the ring.
He’s been there, he’s dealt with some problems outside the ring and worked his way back into contention, so to me, he’s different.
We see one heavyweight mentally break down and then come back, we haven’t seen a mental breakdown from AJ.
I’ve heard crazy things about him and his camp, that he has to get a psychiatrist and all kind of crazy things, but when you’ve been protected most of your life and go to a prep school, and you find out there are wolves, bears and tigers out here, they are going to be in your face every day. They act different.
With Joshua scrapping his initial April Wembley plans to face Miller in the summer, it will be the first time the Brit has competed outside of the UK.
