Undefeated Brooklyn based heavyweight contender JARRELL ‘Big Baby’ MILLER will watch closely this Saturday night, March 31, 2018, as WBA/IBF Heavyweight World Champion ANTHONY JOSHUA faces undefeated WBO Heavyweight World Title Holder JOSEPH PARKER in front of an expected crowd of over 80,000 boxing fans at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, England.

Said the 29-year-old Miller, “The excitement continues in the heavyweight division as Anthony Joshua steps back in the ring on Saturday against Joseph Parker and no one is more excited than me.” 

“A victory by Joshua will put me one step closer to joining him in the ring and will give me the chance that I've been working all my life to get and NO ONE deserves this more! I'm the wildcard that's going to shake this division up and give the fans what they want to see.”

“I'm here to stay and I will get the respect I deserve. I will not be denied. My focus right now is to add another win on April 28th with a knockout victory over Johann Duhaupas and then ‘Big Baby’ Miller is coming for my heavyweight crown and my respect. The world will know my name!”

[QUOTE=sayf;18617476]That's some straight up BS, what on earth has Price done to earn an eliminator? He's been a nobody in the division for years and it's not like he's had any defining fights since he's been back. If this blocks…
