Boxing news: Jarrell Miller wants British heavyweight fight next, names Dillian Whye and Dereck Chisora as potential opponents


The unbeaten boxer floored Bogdan Dinu twice in round four to make it 20 knockouts from 24 fights and is now eyeing a bout against one of Britain’s heavyweights

Jarrell Miller flattened Bogdan Dinu in four rounds before telling the world he wants to ‘knock out a Brit’ in his next fight.

The Brooklyn heavyweight, known as ‘Big Baby’, tipped the scales at 315Ibs and dominated his previously unbeaten opponent, flooring him twice in the fourth round with a punishing left hook before connecting with a huge right hand as the referee counted him out.

Speaking after his 20th knockout in his 24th fight, he explained who he would be keen on facing.

“We’re just trying to work out what to do next.”

“We want AJ (Anthony Joshua) but he’s a little busy, if Dillian Whyte’s gets past Derek Chisora, I want one of them,” he told DAZN in typically brash fashion.

“It’s about time I knocked out a Brit. The Brits, right now, are top of the list and there’s just me and Deontay (Wilder) as the two undefeated American guys and Deontay’s fighting a Brit.

“He’s called out ‘AJ’ but Tyson Fury’s stepped up, so if I can’t get ‘AJ’, I’d like to take Dillian Whyte, Derek Chisora, even a David Allen or David Price.

“If Eddie Hearn wants it and he comes up with a game plan that I like, let’s make it happen.”

Miller went face-to-face with Johsua at the Matchroom DAZN announcement back in July, as the pair exchanged a number of expletives.

The Londoner has never been known to lose his cool before, but was clearly irked by the abuse he was receiving from the cocky challenger.
