Hearn Sees Road For Miller-Joshua
Eddie Hearn sees Jarrell Miller as a future opponent for WBO, IBO, WBA, IBF Anthony Joshua in 2019, but there lies hurdles for the Brooklyn born boxer.
The first one comes in the form of Tomasz Adamek this Saturday in Chicago. With a win against Adamek on Saturday, Miller will be in line for the vacant WBA “regular” title making “Big Baby” the mandatory challenger for Joshua.
“He is mandatory for that WBA ‘regular’ world title. He’ll be looking at Fres Oquendo and Trevor Byran, trying to get a shot at that next,” said Hearn to Sky Sports.
“Big Baby Miller is keeping nice and active. He’s had some good wins – he’s stopped Mariusz [Wach], which not many people do – he had a good win over Johann [Duhaupas]. Now he’s in with Adamek.
“Miller is a real threat to the heavyweight division – a big puncher, huge in size and very, very strong. He’s more durable than he looks. Of course he wants a shot at Anthony Joshua, everybody does, but I think his next move, realistically, is to challenge for the WBA ‘regular’ title. Then he can try and force a fight with Joshua towards the end of 2019.”
