Jarrell Miller on AJ: I'll Turn English Muffin Into Toasted Strudel

Matchroom Boxing and DAZN are heading to Kansas – and promoter Eddie Hearn has promised that the stacked card will deliver a ‘wild’ night – with tickets for the action on November 17 at the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane, Kansas, live on DAZN. Tickets are on sale now from starting at just $25.

Heavyweight star Jarrell Miller tops the bill as he continues his march to World honors against fellow unbeaten banger Bogdan Dinu, with chief-support provided by two-weight World ruler Claressa Shields who looks to add the WBC Middleweight strap to her WBA and IBF crowns against tough Scottish challenger.

"Credit to Bodgan for taking the fight - I'm fighting people I have no animosity to! He's undefeated, he's been in camp for a fight last weekend, so I know he's in shape. it's been a long journey to get to where we are today, I'm finally at the stage where I am getting that title shot and being in a place to fight the big guys. The proof is in the pudding, being big is not a crime. Big Baby is big and I'm going to keep throwing big punches and getting big wins," Miller said.

"I'm finally getting the chance to headline a big card thanks to Eddie and Matchroom and I am going in for the kill. I've been in the gym since winning in Chicago and my hands feel good, so as always, I'm going for the KO. I want those big names, the Anthony Joshua’s, the Dillian Whyte’s, Deontay aka Beyonce Wilder - you know I can't stand that guy. So, let's get this win and then if Dillian doesn't fight AJ, I can turn that English Muffin into toasted strudel."

Middleweight contenders Luis Arias and Gabriel Rosado clash in what promises to be a real war as the pair look to gatecrash the lucrative top table, and there’s an all-Mexican clash and a homecoming for Brandon Rios against Ramon Alvarez, brother of ‘Canelo’’, as both men look to make a splash at Welterweight.

Promoter Eddie Hearn told a press conference on Saturday that a big reason for taking the show to Kansas was the rise of Team USA 2016 Olympic bronze medal man Nico Hernandez, the 22 year old who has raced to 5-0 (4KOs) – the Wichita talent fights for the third time in the Kansas Star Casino and Arena since debuting there in March 2017.

Rankin has some high-profile support from home on the bill in the shape of three-weight World champion Ricky Burns in his 51st pro fight and a second fight in the paid ranks for Commonwealth bronze medal man John Docherty – with unbeaten Light-Heavyweight contender Anthony Sims Jr. () and Brooklyn’s exciting newcomer to the Middleweight scene Nikita Ababiy, fresh from a first round KO on debut in Chicago earlier in the month.

Barring the Joshua/Wilder fight; After November 17, Jarrell Miller will have only two mandatories ahead of him, the WBO's (Dillian Whyte) and the IBF's (Kubrat Pulev) before he gets his WBA title shot at Anthony Joshua.
