The heavyweight division is heating up as of late with Bryant Jennings’ spirited performance in a losing effort against Wladimir Klitschko in April and the emergence of WBC world champion Deontay Wilder as the next American hopeful to reign in the division.
Also, this past Saturday, Undefeated British prospect Anthony Joshua had tongues wagging with a dominating performance over Kevin Johnson.
Tonight in Brooklyn Jarrell Miller will look to add his name to the mix of the heavyweight landscape when he headlines a card at the Paramount Theatre as part of the Brooklyn Brawl series promoted by Star of David Promotions.
Miller (12-0, 10 KOs) takes on Damon McCreary (15-4, 11 KOs) from Detroit and will look to showcase not only his talent but also his personality which is as big as his wingspan.
Miller is coming off a first-round TKO victory last month over Raymond Ochieng in Minnesota. That performance was broadcast live on CBS Sport Network and garnered a lot of praise for the towering heavyweight.
The fight previous against Aaron Kinch was broadcast live on ESPN 2 Friday Night Fights and although Miller emerged victorious, veteran commentator Teddy Atlas criticized Miller’s performance for not stopping Kinch earlier.
“I had some stuff going on during camp with that fight,” Miller said. “I hurt my right hand and it set me back, but tonight you will see a similar performance to my last fight.”
Miller believes by the end of the year he can secure an opportunity against one of the top names in the division.
“We want to get to 20-0,” Miller said. “I really want to fight Anthony Joshua. He’s a fraud and has people believing he’s really that good.”
