Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller Growing Into Heavyweight Attraction Inbox

Do not make the mistake of being fooled by his nickname, “Big Baby.”

Heavyweight prospect Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller possesses adult-sized power, and he’s the one making opponents ttwice when he steps in with them, and starts unloading power shots.

The 6-4, 260 pound Brooklyn-based boxer gloves up Thursday, June 4, in Brooklyn, on a show promoted by Dmitriy Salita’s Star of David Promotions. Miller, age 26, faces off with Michigan’s Damon “Bulldog” McCreary, who sports a 15-4 record.

Miller offered his prediction of what will go down on Thursday night at the LIU Brooklyn Paramount Theater. Or, rather, who…

“I will win by first round knockout,” Miller stated. “The jab will be the key. McCreary is a jittery fighter. The jab will calm him down and then I will bring the power.”

Longer term, Miller says he’s looking to build his record to 20-0, and then? “Look out Anthony Joshua! I’m looking at you!”

Joshua is a Brit boxer, who is making noise in the heavyweight division. Miller knows he can upset his apple-cart, soon.

First up, McCreary, though. Promoter Salita spoke about the show and Miller’s promise.

“I am honored to promote the first boxing show at this historic venue, the Brooklyn Paramount Theater,” Salita said. “It will feature Brooklyn’s own undefeated heavyweight sensation Jarrell Miller, who will electrify NYC. The buzz is building around Miller, me and co-promoter Greg Cohen are keeping him busy. He also fights June 26.With his power, and his charisma–his smile lights up a room!–I think the sky is the limit for “Big Baby!”

The Paramount is located at Long Island University, 1 University Plaza, Brooklyn, NY
