Anthony Joshua’s old rival Jarrell Miller has shared his thoughts on the Brit’s clash with Otto Wallin.
Joshua and Wallin collide on the huge December 23rd card in Saudi Arabia and speaking to SecondsOut Miller thinks the former heavyweight champion is in for a tough night’s work against the Swede.
“I feel honestly that ‘AJ’ might have made a mistake with picking Otto Wallin. Even though Otto Wallin is not a one-punch knockout kind of guy, he is durable, he comes to fight, he is not a quitter and it is going to be a tough fight for ‘AJ’. I don’t think that it is going to be easy, at all.”
He continued: “The mental mind state that ‘AJ’ has, is he going to hold up? When he fights in the U.K… he has a little more oomph in his step a little bit, but when he fights outside of the U.K… we don’t get the same firey person, the playing ground is going to be a little bit more even out in Saudi. I wish all of the luck to Otto Wallin, I want to really be the one to knock out ‘AJ’, but may the best man win, it is what it is.”
Miller also features on the card in Saudi Arabia where he takes on Daniel Dubois in another interesting heavyweight clash.
