Daniel Dubois and Jarrell Miller are fast-becoming the most talked about fighters on this weekend’s show in Saudi Arabia.
The heavyweight match-up will end in a solid win for one and a pretty devastating loss for the other.
Dubois must bounce back from his stoppage loss at the hands of Oleksandr Usyk amidst questions about his heart, and Miller, on by far the most significant show of his career, must back up the substantial talking.
In the build-up, Dubois has been typically respectful and waiting until he can let his fists speak, but at the fight week final press conference he came prepared with a line or two.
“I only have a few things to say to Jarrell. Yo, Big Baby, every baby has a daddy, and I’m gonna beat you like I’m your daddy. Wassup? … I’m gonna spank you.”
Cheers from the assembled media ensued for Dubois, who has been known to speak very little during these engagements. Of course, Miller had his reply ready and waiting.
“I don’t know what card you read that from, but I’m happy you did it. ABCD, 123, Daniel just lost his virginity … Tune in Saturday night man, I’m gonna cook this shrimp. The two-time quitter. You ain’t gonna spank s**t. It’s so funny after the Usyk fight I heard you finally got some vagina.”

At 35-years-old, the Brooklyn native’s career has been substantially halted from failed doping tests and a two-year ban. A win over the young Brit could change all that, with promoters well aware now that he can sell a show like no other in the division.
