Boxing Fans Are Reminding Anthony Joshua Of What He Tweeted About In September
Anthony Joshua will face
Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte Jarrell Miller in his next fight.
The 29-year-old is set to make his American debut by defending his WBA (super), IBF and WBO heavyweight world titles against Miller in New York.
Following the official announcement of Joshua vs. Miller, fans were quick to point out an old Tweet from September.
After he beat Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium, he posted a poll on social media allowing the public to vote for his next opponent.
There were three options; Wilder, Fury and Whyte.
Miller wasn't mentioned and people quickly reminded Joshua of his poll after the underwhelming fight announcement.

On June 1st, Joshua will fight on American soil for the very first time since turning professional.
And Wilder, who holds the WBC heavyweight belt, believes Miller isn't a big name and the match-up isn't a great look for Joshua.
"Jarrell is from Brooklyn and stuff like that, but they don't even know him in his own city," he said.
"He's not a name that's been developed in the market here so for me I don't think it's gonna be a great look for him because even Anthony's not that known here in America."
Joshua vs. Miller at the iconic Madison Square Garden is set. Who takes it? Let us know.
