Jarrell Miller has vowed to knock out Dillian Whyte "worse than Anthony Joshua did" after being challenged on social media by the British heavyweight.
Miller, nicknamed 'Big Baby', was not pleased with his physical condition as he tipped the scales at 300lbs, but is confident he would inflict a crushing defeat on Whyte, who returns to action in Nebraska on August 19, live on Sky Sports.
"I guarantee you that Dillian would have a harder time with Washington than I did," Miller told Sky Sports.
"People said I'm a slugger - have you watched any of my fights? I out-box guys, I box on the inside. Dillian is a slugger.
I would knock Dillian out way worse than Anthony Joshua did. I guarantee you that.
"There are times when I slug it out but he can't throw combinations like I can. He isn't as slick as I am.
"I would knock Dillian out way worse than Anthony Joshua did. I guarantee you that.
"Dillian can say what he wants but he doesn't want to see me in the ring. I can promise you that."
Miller ruled out a fight on British soil and has instead suggested that he would be an ideal opponent for Anthony Joshua if the IBF and WBA 'super' champion wants to boost his profile in America.
"Most definitely [I'd welcome him to the USA]. I'd be happy to knock Joshua out," said Miller.
"As soon as they want to fight in America, I'd be the first to jump at that fight. And I guarantee I'd knock him out inside seven or eight rounds.
AJ rates heavyweight rivals
Anthony Joshua gives his verdict on fellow title holders and possible contenders...
"These guys have tried to ignore me but, after my last performance, I'm on the map. I was unfazed and untouched, so whenever these guys want it, they can get it!
"He broke in the [Wladimir] Klitschko fight. He was broken, he was done. But Klitschko was too old."
