Per a report from Mike Coppinger, the former world heavyweight championship challenger is set to sign a multi-fight deal with Top Rank to bring him to not only the Bob Arum owned stable but to ESPN and ESPN+.

When Miller eventually returns under the Top Rank banner (co-promoted by Dmitry Salita) on the Worldwide Leader, it will be his first fight since a November 2018 knockout of Bogdan Dinu and his canceled opportunity to fight unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.
Miller and Joshua were set to fight inside Madison Square Garden on June 1st of last year, but Miller ended up testing positive for a litany of banned substances including HGH with just over a month until fight night. Joshua would end up fighting and being knocked out by Andy Ruiz Jr, setting off a chain reaction in the heavyweight division.
