Daniel Dubois and Jarrell Miller aren’t the main event this weekend, but many in the sport see it as the most intriguing fight of the night.
Following a stoppage loss to Oleksandr Usyk for the unified heavyweight titles, Dubois will enter the ring with questions surrounding his heart and grit.
The man testing that is ‘Big Baby’ Miller – a fast-talking fighter from Brooklyn best known for serving a two-year ban for doping offences. At 35-years-old, he must now deliver on the big stage after substantial bravado.
Speaking to Pro Box TV, four-weight world champion Roy Jones Jr said that an in-form Jarrell Miller beats the Brit.
“He has really good hands, fast hands, but is this his first fight back after that long layoff? No, well if he had a couple low-level fights than maybe he’s back to himself. If he’s back to true form, I don’t really see Daniel Dubois beating him, but Daniel Dubois is a very game fighter who will come to fight, and if [Miller] is not in true form, Daniel Dubois will beat him.”
“It all depends on which Big Baby shows up. If Big Baby shows up focused and ready to go, I think it’s gonna be a tough time for Dubois, because Big Baby has good hands and he throws combinations, which a lot of heavyweights don’t do.”
Dubois-Miller props up more heavyweight action in the form of Deontay Wilder-Joseph Parker and Anthony Joshua-Otto Wallin, a win for both the favourites paving the way for a long-awaited clash in 2024.
