There has been a heavy wave of criticism over the recently finalized scrap between Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller and former two-division world champion Tomasz Adamek.
The contest will be a part of promoter Eddie Hearn's upcoming Matchroom USA card, which takes place on October 6th in Chicago.
That event will be Hearn's first card to be carried by the streaming service DAZN.
From the moment the contest between Miller and Adamek was made, there was an outcry from fans, and experts, who called it a gross mismatch.
Hearn disagrees - explaining that Adamek is a former champion and a former title challenger who is still a worthy opponent.
"I see it as (No. 7) in BoxRec (rankings) against No. 15 in the world." Hearn told Steven Muehlhausen of Sporting News.
"I don’t see how you can call it a gross mismatch. I see Miller as a big favorite. I see Miller kind of treading water right now in the division while he’s waiting for Joshua to fight Povetkin and Wilder to make up his mind on what he wants to do. Dillian Whyte’s just boxed. I was going to put him on this Oct. 6 show, always."
Hearn makes no secret that Adamek's name is certainly a tool to sell tickets in for the Wintrust Arena, with a very heavy Polish population in the area.
"We are coming to a city which hosts the (second) largest Polish population," Hearn explained.
"Tomasz Adamek is a legend of Polish sport and he’s coming off two good wins. I don’t see it as a mismatch. I see Jarrell as a huge favorite, but you’re not talking about a guy whose challenged for a world title and now works in a café."
Adamek, now 41 years old, has seen his best days behind him. He's won three fights in a row since getting knocked out by Eric Molina in 2016.
