Haye warns Anthony Joshua over scheduled fight with Miller

0

David Haye has warned Anthony Joshua not to be ruled by emotion when he fights Jarrell Miller on June 1.

The ex-heavyweight champ publicly gave the advice to the current king after he trash- talked his opponent at two heated press conferences over the past week.

Writing in his Betfair column, Haye said: “The odds might be short on another AJ win against Jarrell Miller, but don’t underestimate his opponent. Trust me, there is always danger in the heavyweight division.

Whenever there is a heavyweight who is undefeated, who stands 6ft 4ins tall and weighs 23 stone – well, all it takes is one punch. Anthony Joshua got decked by a 17 stone Wladimir Klitschko. Why can’t Big Baby Miller do the same? If he detonates a big shot on AJ’s chin, then he’s vulnerable.”

At their first presser, Miller shoved Joshua and accused him of being on PEDs amid a barrage of other insults.

In response, AJ bit back with his own uncharacteristically aggressive talk – a side to him the public has rarely seen.

David Haye fears Joshua might end up using anger as motivation for his upcoming fight. A dangerous proposition.

Haye continued: “He wants to get AJ angry and give himself a better chance of landing that big shot, and we’ve seen that in the last week in the press conferences for the fight.

I completely understood the gamesmanship we’ve witnessed. It seemed to rattle Joshua. I hope he calms down, listens to his coach and picks his punches because if he goes toe-to-toe, gets angry and fights with his heart on his sleeve he could end up walking onto a knockout shot.

Remember, he nearly came a cropper against Dillian Whyte because there was so much heat before the fight that AJ went into the ring desperate to do a number on him. Come fight night, he got too close and walked onto a big counter left hook that nearly knocked him out. Hopefully, AJ learned his lesson from that one – not to let his emotions rule his head.”
