Jarrell Miller thinks IBF/WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is scared of fighting Deontay Wilder, and the proof of that is him turning down $50 million to fight him. Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs) hasn’t turned down the fight with Wilder. He merely said the fight can only happen in the UK.
Former middleweight champion David Lemieux (38-4, 33 KOs) came in overweight at 162 pounds at Friday’s weigh-in for his fight against Karim Achour (26-4-3, 4 KOs) this Saturday night at the Centre Videoton, in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.
