Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller (11-0-1, 9 KOs) will look to be the next big heavyweight contender from Brooklyn as he gets set to face veteran Raymond Ochieng (26-18-3, 21 KOs) at the Grand Casino Hinckley in Hinckley, Minnesota.
Miller heads the undercard to the televised portion of the card which will air live on CBS Sports Network and is promoted by Greg Cohen Promotions in association with Adam Wilcock’s Fight Card Promotions.
Miller’s animated personality can fill up stadiums the world over and he even shows up to his weigh ins wearing over-sized diapers.
Miller, who is also a K1 kickboxing star, has generated a lot of buzz for his knockout power. Last May, Miller lifted the crowd to it’s’ feet when he knocked out Joshua Harris in two rounds at Brooklyn’s Millennium Theatre as part of Dmitriy Salita’s Brooklyn Brawl series.
Salita’s Star of David Promotions promotes Miller along with Cohen and most recently Miller appeared on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights in January.
“Jarrell is the missing piece that can bring excitement back to the heavyweight division,” Salita said.
“He has the skills and personality to be a real cross over star and he is from Brooklyn. Heavyweight champions grow in Brooklyn.”
