Heavyweight Prospect Miller Steps In To Face CroCop

Jarrell Miller has remained perfect as a pro boxer, but it’s the one loss he endured as a kickboxer that continues to haunt the Brooklyn heavyweight.

Eager for peace of mind, Miller decides to walk through the doors of his old profession after another fighter’s injury provided the opportunity for revenge. The 25-year old heavyweight prospect seeks to avenge his lone kickboxing defeat when he faces Mirko “CroCop” Filipovic on June 21 in Los Angeles, as the headlining act of GLORY 17, which airs live on Spike TV.

Filipovic was originally scheduled to face Sergey Kharitonov, who was forced to withdraw from the bout due to injury. Always ready to fight, Miller was ready to jump in on a moment’s notice.

“One June 21, I am going to whoop CroCop’s ass – again,” Miller promises.

Their first fight took place last March in Croatia, with Filipovic winning a controversial decision. The bout left Miller with his lone defeat between two sports, 21-1 (9KO) as a kickboxer, while 9-0-1 (9KO) in the pro boxing ranks.

Miller has focused far more on the boxing side these days, signing with Star of David Boxing – a promotional company run by former 140 lb. contender Dmitriy Salita – earlier this year. His first fight under their banner came this past March, scoring a 2nd round knockout of Joshua Harris in the Brighton Beach section of Brooklyn, New York.

The plan is to make a run in the heavyweight edition, but temporarily sets aside his gloves as he seeks closure in his past life as a kickboxer.

“We did a one fight deal for kickboxing,” Salita reveals of the unique terms of the fight. “Jarrell wants to focus on boxing 100 percent; he just wants to erase this controversial loss so he can focus on boxing with a clean slate.”

Miller is presently en route to Los Angeles to take part in the SPIKE Movie Awards this weekend. Following the festivities, he will resume training camp in Las Vegas before heading back to L.A. for fight week later this month.
