Warren is Open To Making Fury vs. Miller, Hits Back at Hearn

Frank Warren, lead promoter for heavyweight contender Tyson Fury, has no issue with making a fight against Jarrell Miller.

Miller was ringside earlier this month, when Fury made his Las Vegas debut with a two round destruction of Tom Schwarz at the MGM Grand.

Now Fury is looking to fight against in the United States, in September or October, possibly at Madison Square Garden in New York City - and Miller is a Brooklyn fighter.

Miller is currently suspended after failing three pre-fight drug tests for a planned fight with Anthony Joshua.

The suspension is going to expire in September - but there is heavy doubt that Miller can get licensed in New York, and Fury will need a concrete opponent for promotional purposes.

Because of the pre-fight banter and Miller being a hometown guy, Warren is open to having him face Fury in New York.

He says rival promoter Eddie Hearn, who promotes Joshua, has no room to complain about a potential Fury-Miller bout - because he made a fight between Daniel Jacobs and Canelo Alvarez - citing the fact that the Mexican star had a failed drug test last year and served a six month suspension.

"The objective is to build up to him fighting Deontay Wilder again after their highly controversial first meeting which obviously should have resulted in a victory for Tyson. Hopefully, we get him in there with an American later this year and I am open to the prospect of Jarrell Miller being Tyson’s next opponent," Warren told Talk Sport.

"It’s looking likely he will head to Madison Square Garden in New York, with the fight taking place in late September or early October. I’m hoping it will be finalised fairly soon and we’ll be in a position to make an official announcement.

"Miller’s failed drugs tests cost him a shot at Anthony Joshua in June and a six-month suspension. I’m really anti-drugs and I think there should be some seriously, seriously strict penalties for it. I don’t police the sport, that is up to the governing bodies, and they’re letting everyone down by handing these pathetic little bans out.

"The only way they’re going to get rid of drugs in sport and boxing is draconian measures. There’s no place for it. There has to be severe consequences. But having been handed only a short suspension, Miller will be ready to return to the ring in September and, if he’s licenced, then there’s nothing I can do about that. He’ll be considered by us. I’ve seen Eddie Hearn having a little moan about Miller being a potential opponent for Fury next but, you know, this is the guy that put Daniel Jacobs in with Canelo and who promoted Alexander Povetkin."

If Fury fought Miller after a period of time of around a year since he was busted i wouldnt have any complaints what so ever. But if they make Fury v Miller so soon after Miller got busted for having…

If the Wilder rematch isn't next for Fury than Miller is the best fight available for Fury imo.
