When Anthony Joshua flipped out at Jarrell Miller and blew kiss to his mum in hilarious press conference for cancelled fight

There was no love lost between Anthony Joshua and Jarrell Miller when they were set to fight last year.

The heavyweights were due to meet on June 1 and so held press conferences to preview the bout.

Months earlier, Miller also crashed the DAZN launch press conference to confront AJ and so tensions were already high.

At the DAZN launch, Joshua had to be held back by security as he repeatedly told Miller to, ‘Shut the f*** up.’

When they announced their fight, the pair met again in New York and the American shoved the Brit during their first face-off.

AJ then went into an out-of-character rant in which he branded Miller a, ‘Little b**ch.’

Joshua said he was Miller’s landlord – as he’d chosen him as a title defence – and claimed, ‘I pay your mum’s rent now.’

He then concluded by asking his challenger where his mother was in the crowd and blew a kiss in her direction.

Unfortunately, Miller failed multiple drugs tests and so the fight was scrapped, with him being replaced by Andy Ruiz Jr.
