Anthony Joshua vowed to “reconstruct” Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller’s face as the war of words between the heavyweight rivals escalated.
Joshua and ‘Big Baby’ came together at a London press conference on Monday that concluded with a tense face-off, though none of the physicality that erupted in New York last week.
“The game-plan is to stop him in seven rounds,” Miller said about his challenge for Joshua’s IBF, WBA and WBO titles on June 1 at Madison Square Garden, live on Sky Sports Box Office.’
A menacing Joshua replied: “He talks about seven rounds?
“Look at his face. I will reconstruct his face and his body.
“I’ve got 10 years left. This is all I know. I don’t know football, rugby, NFL, basketball. I know how to knock people out and beat them up.
“Every ounce of spirit he has, I will strip him of it.
“I will do the job. I am a good boxer, a heavy-handed boxer. I have beaten better opponents than any heavyweight out there.
“I will be the surgeon to give him a makeover.”
