‘The biggest hypocrite in boxing:’ Jarrell Miller hits out at Anthony Joshua for criticising Tyson Fury’s hit-and-move display against Wladimir Klitschko… having used the SAME tactics in win against Andy Ruiz Jr
- Tyson Fury beat Wladmir Klitschko in 2015 via a unanimous points decision
- Joshua won via the same method against Ruiz on Saturday, using similar tactics
- American heavyweight Jarrell Miller has therefore labelled AJ a ‘hypocrite’
- Miller was due to face Joshua in New York in June before a doping violation
Fury dethroned Klitschko with a unanimous points victory, with his ‘hit-and-move’ tactics heavily criticised by Joshua.
In 2017, AJ said Fury ‘boxed 12 rounds and ran… I don’t respect that,’ yet himself used similar tactics in beating Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia on Saturday night – and now American heavyweight Miller has accused Joshua and his promoter of being the ‘biggest hypocrites in boxing’.
Anthony Joshua said that Tyson Fury ‘boxed 12 rounds and ran’ against Wladmir Klitschko
Jarrell Miller was due to face Joshua in June, before Ruiz was drafted in as a replacement
Tyson Fury stunned Wladmir Klitschko in 2015 with a unanimous points victory in Dusseldorf
In the 2017 video, Joshua said: ‘As I always said, if I’m the king of Dubai in the olden days and a different empire comes to take my territory.
‘You don’t come and steal my treasure, that’s what Fury did, I think. He stole the belts from Klitschko in the sense he just boxed and moved.
‘I know it’s the “art of boxing” but I always said that you come to sleigh the king, you look him in his face and take what’s his.’
Anthony Joshua was dominant throughout his rematch against Andy Ruiz Jr on Saturday
The 28-year-old came through on a points decision, winning back his IBF, WBA and WBO titles
Now Miller, who was scheduled to fight Joshua ahead of Ruiz in June before a doping violation, has hit back on his Instagram page.
Alongside a video on Joshua’s interview on Fury, Miller wrote: ‘If Applejacks and @eddiehearn ain’t the biggest hypocrites in boxing I guest there no such thing as Hell (sic).
‘This mofo RAN LIKE B****** lmfao. One of the many bipolar interviews from the sweet and low DUO F*** boy DON’T RUN.’
Despite being something of a knockout specialist, Joshua took a more pragmatic approach in his rematch against Ruiz on Saturday, after being knocked down four times in June.
He won via a unanimous points decision, winning back his IBF, WBA and WBO world titles in Saudi Arabia.
