Australian-based boxing journalist Anthony Cocks has been covering the sport for over 15 years for various print and online publications. He refuses to believe that Roberto Duran ever lost to Tommy Hearns and says that Jeff Fenech would destroy Chuck Norris, Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali on the same night.

Outspoken American heavyweight Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller 20-0-1 (18) has given his take on potential future opponent Dillian Whyte 23-1 (17) who is coming off a one-sided six round stoppage of Australian former WBA “regular” heavyweight champion Lucas Browne 25-1 (22) last month.

“I saw the fight, Browne didn’t show up that night. He had too long a layoff,” said the 29-year-old Brooklynite told iFL TV ahead of his fight with Johan Duhaupas 37-4 (24) at Barclays Center in Brooklyn next month.

“Dillian Whyte did what he had to do, no excuse for Browne but I feel like if he came in more at 100 per cent physically and mentally it would have been a different fight.

“But like I said, I’m not Lucas Browne. I’m Big Baby and I will box that boy.”

Miller said he could see a fight between himself and Whyre happening, but only if it occurred under the right circumstances and the winner was rewarded with a world title shot.

“The only reason why I would take a Dillian Whyte fight is if AJ [Anthony Joshua] and Deontay [Wilder] fought, I’d love to be the chief support and then we get the winner of that,” he said. “It could be the co-main event and I would knock his block off too.

“He’s too much of a brawler, he can’t box. He got lucky with Lucas Browne. Browne didn’t throw any punches at him.

“He went to a decision with [Robert] Helenius, who has no firepower, he went to a decision with [Dereck] Chisora – I thought Chisora won that fight.

“Dillian Whyte is good – but he is no Big Baby, believe me.”

American fight fans have high hopes for Miller, who appears to be the best prospect out of the United States at the moment despite a limited amateur career of 11 fights for a record of 10-1 (7).

In his last two fights Miller has defeated former world title challengers Mariusz Wach and Gerald Washington, both inside the distance.

The Ring magazine ranks Miller at number nine, while Whyte is three spots higher at number six.
