JARRELL ‘Big Baby’ Miller has one of those fights nobody really wants to talk about on Saturday night (October 6) in Chicago. It’s the sort of fight most assume he will win – taking his pro record to 22-0-1 – and some have even gone so far as to start mapping out his next one and the one after that.

The reason for this, of course, is that Tomasz Adamek, a former light-heavyweight champion, is significantly smaller than the Brooklyn heavyweight and is now 41 years of age. A mismatch on paper, it’s for this reason Dimitry Salita, Miller’s co-promoter, is already eyeing bigger and better fights in the future.

“He is the (WBA) mandatory, one hundred percent,” Salita told Sky Sports, thus opening the door to a Miller title shot.
