Following a stoppage win over Lucas Browne, Jarrell Miller was quick to receive an offer for his next fight, as Mahmoud Charr stepped into the ring and demanded the clash.
Unfortunately for Charr, Miller admitted that he was other plans and instead intends to take on Daniel Dubois.
Miller scored a TKO victory over the vetran Australian, ending the fight in round six to protect his undefeated record.
This was “Big Baby’s” toughest fight since his comeback and the win has thrown him back into the heavyweight mix, but at 34-years-old, Miller most move quick if he is to break into the top ten.
Miller was scheduled to fight Anthony Joshua in 2020 until he tested positive for three banned substances and was subsequently replaced by Andy Ruiz Jr, who of course defeated ‘AJ’.
In a video shared online, Miller seemed focussed on taking his next world title opportunity and making up for lost time, as he made his intentions of facing Dubois, rather than Charr, clear.
“You [Charr] got to get some more fights brother, I ain’t going to lie, you have been out for a long time. Right now, I am in line for Dubois.
You ain’t got no belt though? You ain’t got no belt! He got no money!
Your man is not even in the rankings, oh goodness.”
To which Charr replied:
“Who is Dubois? I fight Klitschko, I fight Povetkin, I fight everyone. I was two-time world champion with the WBA, I’m giving you the opportunity to fight me in the UAE, for the WBA World Championship. I am number one, let’s fight!”
Dubois holds the WBA (Regular) world title and is the mandatory challenger for Oleksandr Usyk’s WBA title, making the 25-year-old a clear target due to his favourable position in the rankings. However, after suffering an injury in his last fight, Dubois may choose to wait patiently for a title shot of his own.
