Jarrell Miller has shot down Dillian Whyte's belief that he's done enough to earn a world title shot.
Last month, Whyte got his biggest win to date when he won a twelve round unanimous decision over former WBO world champion Joseph Parker.
One fight earlier, Parker became the first man to go the full distance with IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.
Whyte became the first man to knock Parker down - and won the majority of the rounds in the fight.
Miller has aligned himself with promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom, with the hope of securing a world title fight with Joshua in April of next year or a potential fall clash with WBC champion Deontay Wilder.
Joshua will return on September 22nd at Wembley in London, when he takes on WBA mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin. He already has a date set in April, also at Wembley.
He wants to face Joshua next year in a rematch. Joshua knocked Whyte out in seven rounds when they brawled in a very tense fight back in December of 2015. Whyte had Joshua hurt in the early rounds, but he was unable to withstand the Olympic gold medal winner's attacks as the fight played out.
Miller is not impressed with anything that Whyte has accomplished in his career.
He views Parker as Whyte's first live opponent opponent with any real worth since Joshua. Should Whyte defeat a few more opponents like that, then Miller believes he's done enough to get a shot - but at the moment Miller feels that is not the case.
"Joseph Parker is the first guy he's really fought with a pulse since AJ, so it's still early to say," said Miller to Sky Sports.
"He's got a loss. More notable wins like that, then yes [he's earned a shot], but he's turned down [Luis] Ortiz to fight in England.
"Was it a good win, yes? Did it earn him a title shot, I don't think so."
