Jarrell Miller: A Fight Against Tyson Fury is Inevitable

Heavyweight contender Jarrell 'Big Baby' Miller (23-0-1, 20 KOs) is eager to secure a world title shot in the near future.

Miller has been out of the ring since November of 2018, when he knocked out Bogdan Dinu.

He was scheduled to get a crack at WBO, IBF, WBA, IBO world champion Anthony Joshua in June 2019, but he was pulled from the contest after testing positive for several performance enhancing drugs. He was replaced by Andy Ruiz, who pulled off one of the biggest heavyweight upsets in history when he stopped Joshua in seven rounds.


Earlier this year, Miller signed a promotional agreement with Top Rank, who also guide the career of WBC world champion Tyson Fury.

Miller is hoping to make his debut for Top Rank, as part of the undercard for Fury's trilogy clash with Deontay Wilder, which is targeted for October.

"I think it is [inevitable that I fight Fury]. I think that they were talking about it after Fury fighting Wilder again. I was supposed to be the co-main event for that fight. I was supposed to be the co-main event for the last fight. I think that will be definitely in the future," Miller told Sky Sports.

"Even when Wilder had the belt, he was just the beltholder. You could tell by - you know how Tyson Fury came over here - his (Wilder) energy, his persona he gives off, not a lot of people really care for it. It's one of those type of things. I don't know if it's bad marketing, or what it was. He didn't come off as a person you would see genuine in some ways. It is what it is.

"We didn't see anything new from Wilder that we didn't already know, I mean as a boxer and a student of the game. I've always said that, he fights a guy that can box him, can take a pretty decent punch, it's going to be a long night for Deontay and that's what happened. For me as a smaller guy, or the shorter guy, I would be on his chest all night, the exact same way, even worse. I let my combinations go a lot better than these guys."

By the time boxing resumes, Miller will have been out of the ring for two years. He should start a slow comeback before challenging a fighter like Fury.

[QUOTE=Angeljuice;20505442]Wilder is over! He was a fraud and got exposed. He will get beaten by Fury for the third time because he has no talent. How's he going to beat Fury? He doesn't have the talent to change his game,…

BIG LADY Miller was last seen laying his head on Weasel Eddie's left shoulder like a common street whore. Notice this fat, drug-using waste of life never mentions guys like Whyte, Ortiz or Ruiz. Maybe Bob sat him on his…
