Jarrell Miller will return to big-time heavyweight boxing when he faces Daniel Dubois on December 23 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The bout features on a stacked card that will also see Deontay Wilder face Joseph Parker and Anthony Joshua against Otto Wallin.
Joshua and Miller have previous. The American was set to be ‘AJ’s maiden bout in the US, but failed drug tests for various substances saw it cancelled.
Miller entertained at the press conference for the show this month, bringing his brash style and trash talk to insult not just his opponent Dubois, but Joshua too.
Despite that entertainment, promoter Frank Warren was questioned about the American’s involvement on the card given his history with banned substances.
It was a year on from the ill-fated ‘AJ’ bout that ‘Big Baby’ failed again and was subsequently suspended for two years by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Since returning in 2022, he has beaten Ariel Bracamonte, Derek Cardenas and Lucas Browne.
Warren assured the media that there was Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency testing for all involved in the event, and Miller has now confirmed as such by posting a letter from the organisation including information of a negative test.
He also claimed to have been tested five times in seven days, and threw out a warning to Dubois and his trainer Don Charles.
The young Brit will enter the ring a favourite despite coming off a loss against unified champion, Oleksandr Usyk. Miller has accused him of ‘having quit in him’ and vows to stop him.
Should that be the case, the controversial heavyweight will open plenty of doors for top-level fights.
