Promoter: I Just Don't See Anthony Joshua Beating Jarrell Miller

Heavyweight contender Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller (21-0-1, 18 KOs) has everything it takes to unseat WBO, IBO, WBA, IBF champion Anthony Joshua (22-0, 21 KOs), according to Miller's co-promoter Dmitry Salita.

Miller is back in action this coming Saturday night, when he faces former two division world champion Tomasz Adamek at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago.

The contest will be carried by the streaming service, DAZN.

If Miller wins, as many expect he will, Salita indicates that his next fight will have the WBA "regular" heavyweight title at stake.

Miller will find himself in line for a crack at the vacant WBA "regular" championship, after beltholder Manuel Charr tested positive for steroids.

The likely opponent for Miller will be veteran Fres Oquendo.

By capturing the WBA "regular" belt, then Miller will become a mandatory challenger for Joshua - which Salita believes will be his fighter's crowning moment.

Styles make fights - and Salita sees Miller's style as being too much for Joshua.

"I was at the [Joshua vs Alexander Povetkin] fight but, I've got to tell you, that I just don't see Joshua beating Jarrell," Salita told Sky Sports.

"Joshua is a great ambassador for the sport but I don't see him beating Jarrell. Jarrell is a big man physically but what makes him unique is that he has the flexibility and athleticism of a little guy. He has the fluidity and speed of a small heavyweight but he is very big. He has tremendous skills and a high punch output.

"Jarrell's consistency, pressure and size would cause a lot of problems for Anthony. Jarrell also has a tremendous amount of experience fighting outside of his country. Having been in the ring as often as he would have been, Jarrell has a great opportunity to bring the unified world title back to New York City. Can you imagine the build-up to a fight between Jarrell and Anthony Joshua?"

[QUOTE=Eff Pandas;19162811]I got the same top 3, Joshua, Wilder & Whyte. Been unimpressed with Whyte, thought he lost to Del Boy, but that Parker W was nice & is his career defining W so far. I don't do a hard…

[QUOTE=Sid-Knee;19172517]No one outside of the states would have Miller above Povetkin, that would be stupid. It has nothing to do with being bias. But it is ironic that two Americans have no problem with putting Miller above Povetkin even though…

[QUOTE=Sid-Knee;19172492]Presenting a problem to Wilder doesn't make you good because a good few bums have presented problems to him. What part of that don't you understand? Wilder's boxing "Ability" is shocking. He's power and nothing else. Without that power we…

[QUOTE=Eff Pandas;19171982]Both fights were 2 years or less after Povetkin beat them & Big Baby was the only guy who beat both of them post-Povetkin. I don't deny they weren't a lil more worn down when they got to Big…
