Jarrell Miller has claimed that Daniel Dubois agreeing to fight him is like he has ‘signed his death certificate.’
Miller is a controversial figure who failed more than one drug test in the immediate run-up to his proposed fight with Anthony Joshua in New York in June 2019.
Following a two-year ban, he has fought three times, most recently beating Lucas Browne with a knockout earlier in the year.
His upcoming fight with British heavyweight contender Dubois falls on a huge card in Saudi Arabia on December 23 – with the likes of Joshua versus Otto Wallin and Deontay Wilder versus Joseph Parker – and represents his biggest test yet.
Speaking to Second Out, Miller claimed his size is going to be a big problem for Dubois, who is a big puncher but was stopped back in August by Oleksandr Usyk in his first world title shot.
“I’m a mean guy. I push guys, I bully guys. For him to get beat up by smaller guys and then take a task like me, I think his trainer signed his death certificate.”
Miller was then asked about whether he was cautious of Dubois’ power.
“Oh yeah most definitely, a five-year-old can knock somebody out if they hit them in the right spot. I’m not sleeping on Dubois, I know I’m going to beat him and run through him but I’m taking it like I’m fighting Deontay Wilder times five. I’m really excited for this fight. I’m glad he was dumb enough to sign.”
