After landing 36-of-57 power shots in the third and racking up 30 connects to the body, Kassi retired on the stool between rounds, citing a hand injury. Miller landed an impressive 57 percent of his power shots for the fight and limited Kassi to 22 percent of his hooks, crosses and uppercuts.

Fred Kassi - Heavyweight Jarrell Miller (18-0-1, 16 KOs) showed that he could beat a vulnerable and much lighter Fred Kassi (18-6-1, 10 KOs) tonight in stopping him in three rounds on Friday in a one-sided contest on Showtime Boxing at the outdoor Rhinos Stadium in Rochester, New York.

Officially, Kassi injured his right hand. Unofficially, he was going to get knocked out anyway had he continued to fight, because he was making it too easy for the hefty, 296.5 pound “Big Baby” Miller by playing sparring partner against the ropes and just getting worked over.
