Controversial heavyweight contender Jarrell Miller has bullishly rebutted Tyson Fury’s claims that he dropped him in sparring when the American visited Morecambe.
Talking about the session, ‘The Gypsy King’ said he put Miller down numerous times before sending him back home.
“I put him down seven times in the first spar and I sent him home packing back to the USA.”
When it was put to him by Menace Tube that the WBC heavyweight champion professed to have sent him to the canvas a whopping seven times, Miller was not shy in putting forward his side of the story.
“Tyson said he dropped me seven times. No one has ever dropped me in boxing – period.
Nobody has ever got the best of me in boxing sparring, ever. If one person has, come forward. And if you say it to my face, prepare to get slapped because I slap motherf*****s real quick!
I said training camp was tough, but no one ever kicks my a** in sparring.
Tyson and everyone in the camp was great though and it was good to get that body of work in. It was a great atmosphere and I loved it.”
Miller has also sparred the likes of Joseph Parker, Martin Bakole and David Adeleye when training at Fury’s gym, which caused a stir in some quarters due to ‘Big Baby’s history of performance enhancing drugs offences.
Both are currently men without a fight at the time of writing, with fans urging Fury to accept an undisputed clash with Oleksandr Usyk in Saudi, and Miller still rebuilding his reputation from his demeanours over the years.
