Top heavyweight contender Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller (22-0-1) returns to action on Saturday, November 17th in Kansas against fellow unbeaten Bogdan Dinu (18-0). The fight will top the latest DAZN streamed card.
Other fights on the card include Gabe Rosado-Luis Arias, Brandon Rios-Ramon Alvarez and WBA/IBF middleweight champion Clarissa Shields against Hannah Rankin.
The 30-year-old Miller has been campaigning to face the division's elite but so far hasn't had any luck luring any of the top fighters into the ring. This will be his third fight of the year so he has stayed active.
Anthony Joshua is the fighter that Miller most wants to face and he is confident that he will get in the ring with him at some point next year.
"All I know is by September I want his head on a platter. I am going to continue to do what I do and turn AJ into Apple Jacks," Miller stated.
The biggest fight that can be made in the division is Joshua, who holds the WBA/WBO/IBF/IBO titles, against WBC champion Deontay Wilder. Negotiations to make the fight have been unsuccessful on numerous occasions.
Miller isn't sure if the fight will come to fruition in 2019 and wouldn't pick a winner if the fight does happen.
"I don't know. I think Deontay has the power for it and AJ is definitely scared of Deontay and that one punch power but I can't worry about that. All I want is my shot to put him in the dirt. That is it," Miller told BoxingScene.com.
Much has been made of Miller's weight and conditioning for his most recent fights. Last month he blasted out Tomasz Adamek in two rounds and came into the fight at a career high 317 pounds.
Even though his weight seems heavier than what would be ideal for a heavyweight, the 6'4" Miller insists that he is the best conditioned heavyweight in the world.
"They still can't beat me. I have the best conditioning in the heavyweight division. I throw the most punches in the division and I come forward. I got better movement than these fighters. They can say what they want to say," Miller explained.
If he were to get Wilder in the ring he would have close to a 100 pound weight advantage on the Alabama native. Miller is very confident that Wilder wouldn't make it to the final bell.
"He got chicken legs. You know what you do with chicken legs? Break them in half and dip them in gravy. That is what we do with chicken legs," Miller quipped.
