Jarrell Miller in The Running To Face Tyson Fury Next?

Disgraced heavyweight contender Jarrell Miller has emerged as a possible frontrunner to face Tyson Fury in the fall.

Fury made quick work of German Tom Schwarz on Saturday as he danced and jabbed his way to a dominant second round TKO at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The former world champion, who entered the fight as a heavy favourite, controlled the bout with his jab in the first round before ending it with a devastating combination in the second.

The 30-year-old landed several shots to the nose of Schwarz to bloody him, then sent him to the ropes where the German finally went down to one knee.

Schwarz returned to his feet but was powerless to evade a flurry of punches and his corner threw in the towel at about the same time the referee stepped in to stop the fight.

Fury said he would fight again this year in late September or early October, before a rematch with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder in 2020.

Miller was ringside for Fury's Las Vegas debut.

He was initially scheduled to face Anthony Joshua on June 1, but he was pulled from the fight after coming up positive for several banned performance enhancing drugs in three separates drug tests. Miller was replaced by Andy Ruiz, who pulled off a major upset when he stopped Joshua in seven rounds for the WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA titles.

Miller has already spoken to Fury's co-promoter, Bob Arum of Top Rank.

“Tyson looked like Tyson – he did his thing. It was the right opponent for the right occasion. My suspension is up in September and I think October would be more of a great date and I wouldn’t mind October. I’d be ready for it if I got the shout from Top Rank, I’d take it straight away," Miller told Declan Taylor.

“I’ve had conversations with Bob Arum already so we will see – you never know. I’m going back to the drawing board, I won’t be the first and I won’t be the last, believe that. Hell yeah I can repair my reputation – I’m Big Baby Miller and I kick ass.”

Frank Warren, who is the lead promoter for Fury, would not confirm or deny that Miller is a frontrunner to face his man.

“I don’t know exactly what Miller’s position is at the moment but it’s something we will look at. We will look at all options. The whole team will sit down and we will make a decision. I’m sure an American opponent would be the best option but let’s wait and see. We will look at the rankings and it’s something we’ll work out this week," Warren said.

Top Rank fighters are avoiding VADA. This would be perfect for the walking PED factory Jarrell Miller.
