Jarrell Miller gets the chance to back up his substantial trash talk against Daniel Dubois on Saudi Arabia’s Day of Reckoning card.
The brash Brooklynite has made no secret that he thinks he’s levels above Dubois – who is coming off a stoppage loss to unified world champion Oleksandr Usyk – and told TNT Sports why.
“I’m gonna knock him out. The problem is we both come from different backgrounds. I feel like he’s very protected by his father. I was in a rougher environment, the hard streets of Brooklyn, Queens, I fight for everything.
You can clearly see I have no top notch promoter, no top notch manager … I had to figure this s**t out on my way. Ain’t nobody give me nothing. I’m undefeated and I’m the underdog. Never quit, never been stopped, never been dropped, and I’m the underdog.”
‘Big Baby’ Miller predicts a sixth round stoppage for the fight, against the bookmakers odds.
“Tricks are for kids, so I’m gonna end it in round six. Six to eight rounds. It depends on him through really. If he runs, he’s gonna get tired more quickly and we’re gonna get him out in six. If he runs and he stands still a little but, get him out in the sixth. So we’re looking at six.”
Should he win, and despite a controversial doping past, he keeps alive hopes of a grudge match with Anthony Joshua or one of the other bigger names in the division.
For Dubois, a loss would be as bruising as they come. The young Brit enters the ring with questions about his grit, and a statement victory will be the perfect answer.
