JARRELL MILLER is a horse-riding, techno-dancing philanthropist with a thriving haulage business. Oh, and he has turned up for fights wearing a nappy. Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller fancies causing an upset against Anthony Joshua Anthony Joshua will make his US debut in June at the Madison Square Garden in New York But the New Yorker, nicknamed Big Baby, showed his bottle by accepting a fight on June 1 with WBA, WBO and IBF champ Anthony Joshua after Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte turned down the Brit. Being Plan D will not hit the confidence of the 30-year-old Brooklyn ex-kickboxer, who splits his time between the concrete jungle of NYC and the jungle of his second home in Belize. The 22st unbeaten slugger, with 20 of his 23 wins coming via KO, is motivated to create a better future on the crime-ridden streets of Belize City. He is a lawless animal looking for a kill to feed his ravenous appetite and the desperately deprived children back in the Central American city. [article-rail-topic title=”Latest Boxing news” term_id=”8909″ posts_number=”6″ /] Jarrell Miller grew up in belize but is now based in Brooklyn Jarrell Miller calls himself the Penguin from the Batman movies Jarrell Miller is unbeaten in all 23 fights The 6ft 4in hulk said: “I am like the Penguin from Batman right now, the big bad villain. But that’s OK because you need these sort of characters in boxing. “Outside the ring everyone knows I am a fun-loving, nice guy who loves his dessert. But inside the ring I am a terror, I am a monster.” Miller spent five years of his childhood in Belize, a hotbed for gang violence and drug trafficking. And aside from fighting, talking about his second home is when he is most animated. A two-year stay in chilled-out Canada gave the challenger his laid-back approach to life — and taste for rave music. Big Baby, who has now dropped the ring walks dressed as a toddler, compares himself to a big kid in a playground when he takes the 2,000-mile flight back to the former British colony Belize. And there, his family meet him with a stallion strong enough to carry him out of the arrivals lounge. Anthony Joshua has not fought since stopping Alexander Povetkin at Wembley last September He said: “I moved from Brooklyn to Belize aged two and came back around seven. From then I have always been back and forth. “I also lived in Canada for two years and that gave me my love for dance and techno music. “It also taught me how to mellow because I had a very rough, street-kid mentality and the Canadians were so nice. “I go back to Belize as often as I can because it is an inspiration for me.

Around every 30 seconds there is a shooting. “Some guys get off the plane at the airport and jump in a limo. I get ten of my cousins to ride down with my horse and I zoom out of there on that.” Miller runs a martial arts gym in Queens and his kickboxing career saw 23 wins and two losses, his only defeats coming on points against MMA legend Mirko Cro Cop. But Big Baby Trucking has been another source of income for the savvy investor, after a well-connected buddy made him an offer he could not refuse. Fun-loving Miller said: “It’s two 18-wheelers and we run goods back and forth between New York and Atlanta. Anthony Joshua wanted Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury or Dillian Whyte before opting for Jarrell Miller “I had a friend who was an ‘old school businessman’, if you know what I mean, and he got out of that and started doing trucking.

I am a truck — controlling myself is enough.” Beneath his wisecracks and AJ-bashing, Miller is a multicultural man who has been hurt by American president Donald Trump’s campaign against immigrants getting into the country. When asked how he feels watching the hordes of struggling Central Americans and Mexicans trying to follow him to the US, he shows a softer side. He said: “It hurts because I have family from Mexico, as well as Guatemala and Honduras and it is rough. “I am a man of the world. I do not agree with Donald Trump.

Lennox Lewis insists Jarrell Miller will pose no threat to Anthony Joshua when they meet in New York on June 1. Britain’s WBA, WBO and IBF champion Joshua will defend his titles against the American at Madison Square Garden, it was announced this week. Anthony Joshua will fight in America for the first time this summer Miller is unbeaten in 24 fights and ranked highly in the heavyweight division but former undisputed king Lewis says ‘Big Baby’ doesn’t stand a chance against AJ. He told SunSport: “I am with everybody else in this case, I wanted to see a better fight. “When Anthony came to America last year and Miller came up and crashed his press conference, I thought that was big set-up and I was not fooled by it. “I have only seen Miller fight once but I guess it’s the easy sort of fight they want to have in America and then go home. PROFILE: Who is Jarrell Miller? All you need to know about Anthony Joshua’s next opponent on June 1 in New York “It’s not really a fight that will test Anthony. “Miller is just an up-and-coming heavyweight who is trying to make himself known to the world. “But no one really knows him in America and they don’t know him too well in England either.” Jarrell Miller weighs in at over 300lbs Joshua had been hoping for a unification showdown against Deontay WIlder, the WBC belt holder, at Wembley on April 13 and blamed ‘boxing politics’ for preventing it from happening. But Lewis has little sympathy for the 29-year-old, and claims ‘bad decisions’ from his promoter Eddie Hearn have cost Joshua the fight against his fellow champ. After lengthy talks over a fight with Joshua last year failed to result in an agreement, WIlder went on to face Tyson Fury in December and, following their thrilling draw in December, the two men are set to go head-to-head again in 2019. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN BOXING” posts_category=”217″ posts_number=”10″ query_type=”popular” /] Lewis said: “I don’t think it was complicated to make the Wilder fight, they were in the best spot possible to dictate exactly what they wanted. “They cannot cry over spilled milk and say ‘oh I wish I could have got the fight’. “They could have got the fight but they did not take advantage of their position.

JARRELL MILLER has vowed to make Anthony Joshua the latest British boxing star to flop Stateside “like Amir Khan and Prince Naseem!” The unified world champion will defend his WBA, WBO, and IBF heavyweight belts against ‘Big Baby’ Miller at Madison Square Garden in New York on June 1. Jarrell Miller has sent a warning to Anthony Joshua ahead of world heavyweight title fight AJ will fight in the US for the first time as he defends his WBA, WBO and IBF belts Joshua, 29, frustrated fans when he announced he would make his US debut after failing to agree a Wembley fight against either Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury or Dillian Whyte. AJ is the heavy favourite against the Brooklyn Brawler, who has racked up 23 wins out of 24 fights, with 20 victories coming by way of knockout. Despite this, Miller has drawn parallels between his fight with Joshua and Buster Douglas’ shocking 1990 upset of Mike Tyson at the Tokyo Dome. He said: “I think it will be between the same lines, but you look at all the Brit’s over the years that did well but as soon as they come to America they get smashed. Miller believes Joshua will suffer the same fate as Amir Khan Amir Khan suffered a sixth-round knockout at the hands of Canelo Alvarez in Las Vegas Prince Naseem was also defeated in Las Vegas during his IBO featherweight championship bout in 2001 “Whether that’s Prince Naseem, Amir Khan the tale goes back, there’s a lot of Brit’s that come on American soil and get smashed. “They do great at home, but when they come over to America it’s a different story. He’s made a big mistake. “His team are in unfamiliar territory, he’s got to step out his comfort zone and do certain things and protein shakes won’t help. “I’ve been the underdog before and proved myself many times. AJ thinks he’s going to come over and run over me? Never happened, and never will.” [article-rail-section title=”Most Read in Boxing” posts_category=”16″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] Miller was raised in the same area of New York as Mike Tyson The undefeated American has won 20 of his 24 fights by knock out Khan, who is on the comeback trail after his devastating knockout loss in Las Vegas to Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in May 2016, admitted later that the fight was a mistake. Before that, a complacent Prince Naseem, was considered the best 126lb boxer in the world before he was humbled in a 12-round clinic to Marco Antonio Barrera. Promoter Eddie Hearn had reportedly offered Dillian Whyte a £4million payout to face Joshua at Wembley as a ‘Plan B’ after failing to land both Wilder and Fury. Miller added: “I thought the Dillian Whyte fight was what he really wanted, but AJ was trying to be cheap and they didn’t want to pay Dillian Whyte the offer he wanted. Joshua is set to defend his trio of world titles against Miller in June “AJ has a funny way of negotiating when he’s losing, he tries to put in contacts where he rules over the rematch. “So when I knockout AJ on my rematch he wants to have the majority and Whyte didn’t want that. “If I’m the champ and I beat you, I call the shots – what happens on the undercard, negotiations – but AJ didn’t want that, so that’s why the Dillian Whyte fight fell through. “On my part, I have a good network in DAZN, and Matchroom and Eddie Hearn wanted to make the fight. Joshua last fought against Povetkin in September “It was never about the money, but the same time the money was there and I know what I’m gonna bring to AJ to get the rematch going. “It was spoken about for about a month and a half but I just wasn’t super excited about it – I’ll be real. “But the paperwork came through about a week and a half ago, and I was like ‘Okay, this might be happening’. “AJ was like ‘I’m not doing this, I’m not doing that’ but DAZN said they could agree it.
