Jarrell Miller: I definitely felt the ring rust, Washington was tough

Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York - Headlining the "SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING Prelims," heavyweight Jarrell Miller (19-0-1, 17 KOs), of Brooklyn, N.Y., stopped former world title challenger Gerald Washington (18-2-1, 12 KOs) after eight-rounds.
 
Miller used his significant size advantage and effective power-punching to break down the former collegiate football player. Washington had some success early with his jab and body attack, but was not able to stay out of punching range of Miller
 
Washington surged in the sixth round with a series of power shots that staggered Miller, however the Brooklynite countered and further broke down Washington, who landed just 20% of his jabs overall.

Miller, who landed almost half of his power punches, continued the onslaught in the seventh and eight rounds, and while Washington was able to stay on his feet, he took enough punishment that his corner called the fight after the eighth round.
 
"I definitely felt the ring rust," said Miller, who was making his third appearance on SHOWTIME. "Gerald was very tough. It was a very good fight that had me thinking. My power was there, but I couldn't put it together the way I wanted to today.
 
"I took the hard way back coming in off of a layoff. Gerald definitely pushed me and motivated me. I had to rely on my brain and my power.
 
"I knew there would be a give and take in this fight. It's one thing to fight when you have stamina, it's another to fight when you're tired. I was trying to outthink him."

[QUOTE=sammybee;17903578]Miller Vs Whyte is a tough fight... Don't forget Whyte whitewashed Chisora[/QUOTE] He hardly whitewashed Chisora.

Regarding Chisora/White, agree that it was close but had Del Boy winning narrowly. He definitely had Whyte hurt badly several times. As for Miller, I kind of like him although I'm not sure if he's the future of the Heavyweight…

[QUOTE=kilojay505;17903763]wrong again casual Tua wasnt 6'4 and never head movement like Miller[/QUOTE] The only thing that is casual is your grasp on reality. Miller is a slob. The NYSAC is considering making Miller wear a bra in the future.
