BoxingScene.com has been advised that heavyweight contender Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller (23-0-1) has signed a managerial contract with one of the leading managers in the sport, James Prince. The Houston based music mogul's stable also includes WBO featherweight champion Shakur Stevenson, Tony Yoka, Bryant Jennings, Jared Anderson, Julian Rodriguez, and several others.
Miller recently took to his Instagram to confirm the news. He is currently co-promoted by Greg Cohen and Dmitriy Salita. An article by BoxingScene.com's Jake Donovan that was recently published stated that Top Rank Inc. will be brought in as a co-promoter in the near future.
The unbeaten 31-year-old has been out of the ring since last November when he stopped Bogdan Dinu in 4 rounds. He was scheduled to face Anthony Joshua in June but was suspended prior to the fight for failing multiple drug tests.
The assignment instead went to Andy Ruiz Jr. who pulled off the biggest upset of the year when he stopped Joshua in 7 rounds. The two will square off again Saturday in Saudi Arabia in their highly anticipated rematch.
A date for Miller's next ring assignment is unknown as of this publishing. He was suspended for 6 months by the WBA for his failed drug tests.
