BROOKLYN (June 11, 2014)– On Saturday, June 21, New York’s Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller will fight Mirko Cro Cop in the main event of the GLORY 17 Los Angeles kickboxing card to air on SPIKE TV, from the Forum in LA.
But Miller, a 260 pounder who is at the top of the ladder in the kickboxing world, wants everyone to know he will continue climbing the ranks in the boxing sphere, as a heavyweight superstar-in-the-making.
Now 9-0, with 9 KOs in the squared circle, Miller is also 22-1 as a kick boxer.
He has some unfinished business with Cro Cop, who he fought back in March 2013. Miller lost a heavily disputed decision; he’s now intent on righting that wrong, and then resetting his sights on the heavyweight championship.
The Brooklyn resident fights for promoter Dmitriy Salitas’ Star of David Promotions on boxing cards. Promoter Salita believes he has a New York talent who can follow in the footsteps of other Brooklyn legends, like Mike Tyson and Riddick Bowe.
“Jarrell fought on my boxing show May 15 and looked spectacular in scoring a second round TKO victory,” Salita said. “We were working on his next fight when we got a call to fight Cro Cop in a rematch. Jarrell hasn’t kick-boxed in awhile and is fully focused on boxing but he has a strong desire to get revenge, so he can focus completely on boxing.”
Miller took part in the Spike “Guys Choice” awards show, which airs on Spike June 11 (9 PM ET), and was in the mix of all the “pandemonium” which will be on display in this celebration of dudes and the chicks they dig. He mixed and mingled with “The Walking Dead” cast, Cheech and Chong, and Kevin Hart, as well as some swimsuit models, he reported. “It was cool stuff!” he said.
After “Big Baby” tosses Cro Cop around like a stuffed animal, he aims to get back to the business of boxing. “I aim to be 15-0 by the end of the year, and to eat at least 300 cheeseburgers before the year is over,” Miller stated, “while having six pack abs! Mmmm, can you say cheeseburger!?”
The charismatic Miller fights Cro Cop (22-8; from Croatia) on June 21 (8 PM ET) in Inglewood, CA.
