Recent events have shown that Nigerians are in no mood for nonsense these days especially with very important elections around the corner in the country. One of such events is the one that concerned a press conference issue involving “their own” Anthony Joshua recently. This is surely not the best time to step on Nigerian toes as you will find below.
Nigerians took turns to troll Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller on his Instagram Page shortly after pushing Anthony Joshua during their pre-match conference on Tuesday, 19th March. Nigerians went in hard on his page throwing tantrums and abusive words at Big Baby.
Celebrities weren’t left out, as they were obviously in support of ‘their own’. Celebrities like Davido, Don Jazzy, Patoranking, Brodashagi, Harrysong, Ushbebe, Charles Inojie, and many others. His Instagram Post gathered over 22,000 comments, mostly that of Nigerians.
AJ and Big Baby met on Tuesday for the first time since their bout which would hold at Madison Square Garden on the 1st day of June was announced to hold a pre-fight press conference. Miller was quite uninterested in keeping calm or exchanging pleasantries as he charged against the unified heavyweight champion, shoving Joshua with both hands as soon as they came face to face.
Joshua however, didn’t retaliate as security tried keeping them apart. That didn’t stop them from exchanging words at close quarters across the table during the press conference which saw Miller do more of the ranting leaving Joshua clearly irritated.
This would be the second time Big Baby is causing such chaos as he interrupted Joshua and Alexander Povetkin conference last year. The match Between AJ and Jarrell Miller on the 1st of June would be Joshua’s match debut in the U.S.A
