Boxing News: Jarrell Miller: There's only one Big Baby » August 28 … – Fight News

Published

on





Outspoken and undefeated WBA #10 Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller (25-0-1, 21 KOs) says he’s going to take out former WBA (regular) heavyweight champion and WBA #9 Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne (31-3, 27 KOs) quickly this Saturday on ProBox TV from Agenda Arena in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Miller also discusses heavyweight prospect Jared Anderson using ‘The Real Big Baby’ moniker.
On Training Camp:
Training was great. This was my first official training camp (since returning). I didn’t have everything I wanted in this camp, because I was kind of getting a rhythm and organizing things. I’ve been out of the game for a while. By next camp, I will know how I like things again.
On Lucas Browne:
He’s a big guy. He’s durable for a certain number of rounds and has a good overhand right. But technically and fundamentally, he’s nowhere near me. I know I’m stronger. I know I’m faster. I‘m younger. I have an amazing jab. My IQ in boxing is phenomenal. Everything he does, I do a million times better. But he’s game. That’s all that matters in the fight game. One punch in the heavyweight division anything can happen, so I did not sleep on him.
How He Sees the Browne Fight Unfolding:
I’m thinking it will go four rounds or less. I’m not trying to play with him and I’m not going to give him an opportunity to land that right hand. He fought Junior Fa and Junior didn’t realize what he walked into. I see him as a slow starter who gets beat up a lot and then in seven or eight rounds, he lands a right hand that gets guys out of there. My goal is to not let it go 10 rounds. I got head movement and a good, stiff jab. Once I get him hurt, I will go in there and send him home. I’m definitely going to knock him out in the early rounds of the fight. It could be a combination or just one punch, but I know I’m going to stop him.
On His Continued Weight Loss:
For my last fight, I came in at 340. I’m down to 325. I look a lot leaner than 325, but I’ve been relearning my body over again. I’m a couple years older now and I’m relearning how to eat and diet. I feel amazing. I never was a drinker, and I don’t smoke at all, so I’m just learning what to put in my body now that I’m a little older. I’ve learned how to eat clean for myself.
Is He the Same Fighter He Was Four Years Ago?
Honestly, I don’t 100% know the answer to that. This is the first game opponent I have fought (in the last four years). I still talk shit and back it up, but am I the same fighter? No. I don’t think so. I think every year, a person evolves. You have to become a little different and a little better.
What Did He Learn During His Four Years Away:
I think mentally I have learned how to let certain things go. I’ve learned how to read people differently; I have a better understanding with myself spiritually in a way. I’ve gone through other struggles away from boxing, outside the ring. Dealing with a divorce, not seeing my kids, so the hunger is still there (to fight). I just need to be realistic with myself, know when to criticize myself and know what I need to work on. Being a better human being of course, but understanding what my strengths are what my weaknesses are. This fight is going to show me what I need to work on, but at the same time I’m going in for the kill regardless.
They say you can never be a man if you’ve never gone through adversity in your life and I’ve always gone through so much outside of boxing. (The failed drug tests) That’s probably the first issue I’ve gone through in boxing. It taught me a lot about the people I had in my corner and the people I really thought had my back. I had to really stand on my feet firm and really believe in myself and have faith in God that I could come through anything.
I’ve got a great team now, including my long-time promoter Greg Cohen who is here with me, and I’m ready to get what’s mine.
On Anthony Joshua Not Being Who People Once Thought He Was:
I’m good at reading people. I said that Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing did a great job of marketing him and selling him this whole BS story of who he was. But I can read people. I knew he was full of shit and after I pushed him, he was never the same. Andy (Ruiz) kind of took advantage of that and he did what he did. Now it’s my turn to get what I’ve lost.
On Heavyweight Prospect Jared Anderson Calling Himself ‘The Real Big Baby.’
I think it’s cute, but anybody that has to call themself “The Real Big Baby,” that should tell all they got to say. That’s corny as hell. ‘I’m the real Anthony Joshua!’ You know what I mean? Trying to be the person you’re not. He did that on purpose too. He’s younger and I got way more experience. Everybody knows I’m the original Big Baby and there’s only one Big Baby.
He (Anderson) ain’t fighting nobody. They want to fight cruiserweights. He’s calling out Andrew Tabiti. The guy is not even a real heavyweight. That tells you the kind of enthusiasm behind this guy and the belief they have in him.
Is He Looking To Fight Anderson Soon?
Not yet. Listen, if they… I would love to fight him. I’ll fight him right now. I’ll fight him tomorrow if they really want to talk that game, but I know him, and his team don’t want none of that smoke at all. I know his manager James Prince will tell him to stay away from ‘The One and Only Big Baby.’ I think the time for that will come, but if they want it, I’ll definitely give them smoke.
On Fury vs. Usyk:
A lot of people are saying that Tyson is going to beat him up and it’s going to be a one-way fight. First of all, this is boxing. What I can tell you is this. I’m a big fan of Tyson. Me and him talk our regular boxing BS, but if I take my biased opinion out of it, anybody that knows how to box gives Tyson a problem and Usyk is a real technical boxer. So, I don’t see it being a one-sided fight. I think it will be a very technical fight. I don’t think it will be super exciting, but I don’t think it will be a one-sided fight. I do tilt more toward Tyson because he’s a bigger guy and he can be aggressive at times, but I think it will be a lot closer than what people are making it seem.
His Goals for The Future:
My main thing right now is I want to punch Anthony Joshua in the face. That fight needs to still happen. I’m hoping he gets past Jermaine (Franklin). Hopefully we can get it on after this fight. I want to retire him. I want to break his will and his heart, his brain, his eye socket. And I still want to break his nose. That would definitely be the fight I want. But, if not, Daniel Dubois and his team have expressed interest in fighting. I would definitely fight him right after this for the WBA Regular title. Those are the only two fights I really care about, Daniel Dubois and Anthony Joshua.
I am destined to be heavyweight champ of the world, hands down. Period. I just have to stay focused, stay relaxed and be my rambunctious, loud, dynamic self. I got to be me.
On Sparring with Tyson Fury:
Sparring with Tyson taught me I knew where I still stand in this game. Tyson said he dropped me seven times, that’s BS. More like the other way around. I clocked him with some shit.
On Being in Dubai:
I’m loving Dubai. I’ve been a big believer in the Muslim religion for many years. My trainer when I was a kid in the amateurs, he always wanted me to convert and learn more about the culture. Being out here, I’ve been at peace. I see a lot of my friends have moved out here. Just being in a relaxed state of mind and able to focus.
Lastly, On Deontay Wilder:
Wilder is not the same person, mentally. He still has that wonderful, powerful right hand, but there are definitely some kinks in his armor I see. When you believe all the things people around you are telling you and then someone teaches you they’re full of shit, it’s hard for you to believe it. He was talking about how he’s Mike Tyson and a god and a killer and now he sees he’s not that. It was time for him to come off his high horse. Reality teaches you who men are when they are tested. Deontay still has a right hand that could put you to sleep though.
I see this as an easy win for Big baby
There’s not only one big baby. Jared Big Baby Anderson would absolutely destroy Jarrell Miller
I can’t see any big promoter taking a risk on Miller — at least not any time soon — so I would imagine he would have to get in there against maybe someone like Jalolov or Makhmudov as an opponent. What he did to himself was crazy, going from having a big payday (twice if he won) against AJ to…. having to sit out three and a half years in the middle of his prime. He’s still just 34 which is pretty good for a heavyweight, but if ever you needed a ‘DO NOT DO’ type of an example to young fighters, this guy is a good choice.
I’m sitting here thinking that maybe DKP would take a chance on him (because if the event got canceled, Don King wouldn’t give a damn anyway) – Trevor Bryan – Miller??
The fighters in the King stable might be a good path for him. Bryan or Guidry? If he beats those guys then he and others can reassess. No guarantee he gets by Browne. I think they should have made Parker-Browne after Browne knocked out Fa…but I am a sucker for local type rivalries. Still Browne can be dangerous.
The good news is at least he (Miller) did not try to say he ate too many eggs!
Zzzz. Some entitled fat prick who’s accomplished nothing in boxing and never will, but is only remembered as a multiple time drug cheat. Not interested
If Miller had a uk protor called Eddie, the drug failings would be renamed to adverse findings and he could avoid the sanctions because the UK has no commission, just a board which is only a private company not a real commission, and he could get a 300 page excuse for the wbc who would then make the excuse for him
It’s about time we get to see him fight again.
Big Baby is an absolute joke of a heavyweight. He pumped himself so full of drugs to make himself relevant – he’s such garbage, that the only recognisable names on his record were Wilder fodder Duhaupas, an ancient Marius Wach and a shot to bits Tomasz Adamek. How he got a ranked position in the WBA is hilarious.
Browne is 43. He’s been beaten by a body shot by the 6th or 7th best British Heavy in Dave Allen. That was 4 YEARS AGO. He’s so far gone he shouldn’t even be fighting.
Miller will probably win this without trying. But I really hope Browne for all his 43 years clocks this clown and lays him out cold. Then we don’t have to listen to his utter BS any more.
Miller at that weight without the juice and age 34 can’t possibly move like he used to. Still think he beats Browne but it will a rough night and Miller will never be a top 10 fighter.
IF Miller wins this, Anderson is going to take him apart. Plain & simple.
the fact he highlights being down from 340 to 325 and “learning how to eat” as he approaches his mid 30’s tells me a lot. He will beat some guys and lose to others.
Can’t stand this SLOB drug cheat. Should have a lifetime ban!! Dudes a total JOKE!! I hope Browne lays him out cold with the first punch he throws. Yeah, I know it won’t happen and Miller will win quite easily.
Is this a joke? Two long term steroid cheats enter a boxing ring…I’m shocked the WBC doesn’t have a special belt for this match-up of chemical frauds.
THERE WAS BABY JOE MESI BUT HE DIDN’T WORK OUT… THEN CAME THE MONIKER BIG BABY.. I LIKED MILLER RIGHT FROM THE BEGINNING… NOW THAT THE BULLSHIT IS OUT OF THE WAY LET’S SEE WHAT THE MAN CAN DO…KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK JERRELL… STAY FOCUSED YOU COULD BE CHAMP..
In fairness to Mesi, it wasn’t so much that he didn’t work out as he suffered an extreme injury.
What a dumb fucking nickname to be feuding over.
big baby not sure about his talent he has to start fighting conternders in heavyy division?

What time is Floyd Mayweather vs. John Gotti III today? Schedule, main card start time for 2023 exhibition boxing fight – Sporting News

Published

on





Floyd Mayweather once again steps inside the ring to compete in an exhibition fight. This time, he faces someone with legit combat sports experience and a last name nobody will ever forget. Mayweather faces John Gotti III, the grandson of infamous gangster John Gotti, on June 11.
The fight is inside the FLA Live Arena in Florida and airs on the Zeus Network. 
Gotti turned pro in 2017. Winning five in a row to start his MMA career, Gotti lost his last fight in 2020 against Nick Alley. The 30-year-old has since competed in boxing bouts, winning two contests in the past eight months.
Calling this fight a “pinch-me moment,” Gotti has nothing but respect for Mayweather. However, he will not let his fandom get in the way of what he needs to do.

“I’ve been following him since I was eight years old,” Gotti said via Boxing Scene. “This was my idol. This was a guy I did school projects on. It was a guy I looked up to. The fact that I’m in a position to stand across the ring from Floyd is a tremendous honor. But make no mistake, June 11, I’m bringing bad intentions to that man. I don’t care if it’s an exhibition or not. You signed to fight me, there’s no quarter. It’s kill or be killed.”
This is the latest exhibition for Mayweather, who retired in 2017 at 50-0. In 2018 he teamed with RIZIN and beat young kickboxing star Tenshin Nasukawa via TKO. Mayweather fought Logan Paul and former training partner Don Moore in non-scored bouts. He beat Mikuru Asakura and YouTuber Deji in 2022 via TKO. In February, Mayweather went the distance against MMA fighter Aaron Chalmers.
Here is all you need to know regarding Mayweather vs. Gotti, from the time, channel, and card.
Mayweather vs. Gotti begins at 6:30 p.m ET | 3:30 p.m. PT. Ringwalks are scheduled for 10 p.m. ET | 7 p.m. PT, depending on how long the undercard fights last.

Tyler Durden & Angel Face Got Together After Fight Club's Ending (Really) – Screen Rant

Published

on





Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club 2 comic brings back the character played by Jared Leto in the movie for an unexpected, but critical role.
Angel Face, played by Jared Leto in the Fight Club film adaptation, makes a surprise return in Chuck Palahniuk's comic book sequel to his original Fight Club novel – coming back with both revenge, and, oddly enough, love on his mind, following the vicious beating he received from the Narrator a decade earlier.
Fight Club 2 – by Chuck Palahniuk, Cameron Stewart, Dave Stewart, and Nate Piekos of Blambot – features the son of the Narrator and Marla Singer being kidnapped, with a returning Tyler Durden being the prime suspect, compelling the Narrator to reintegrate himself into Fight Club. In the closing pages of the series' fourth issue, the permanently-scarred Angel Face reappears.

In a brutal display that directly mirrors the original, Angel Face administers a brutal beating to the Narrator. He ends up knocking the Narrator into unconsciousness, which triggers Tyler Durden to awaken in his place at the start of Issue #5. Angel Face knows what's happened immediately, and subsequently is horrified as Tyler mercilessly returns the meeting. It is not until a few issues later, in Fight Club 2 #9, that it is revealed Tyler has been having an affair with Angel Face for quite some time. The Narrator discovers this only when he's awake, rather than Tyler, at a moment Angel Face kisses him.
As the Narrator's therapist says, on the same page as the reveal, ""a sociopath will sleep with anyone to gain her allegiance … or his." The re-emergence of Angel Face gives readers a glimpse of exactly how being a Fight Club member for so many years has worn on Angel Face's body. Aside from the distorted face the Narrator gave him ten years prior, he is littered with scabs, scars, and bruises from decades of sparring. It's clear that Angel Face has clung on completely to the ideas that Tyler put in his head years prior, whether it is because he's a true devotee, or he has nothing else.
Angel Face is depicted as not only unflinchingly loyal to Tyler Durden's ideals, but to the man himself. It remains ambiguous in the text whether Tyler returns Angel Face's feelings, or the extent to which he can feel at all. Angel Face is in love with Tyler – for Tyler, a physical relationship may just be a way to retain Angel Face's loyalty, to continue holding power over him. In this way, it is reminiscent of how the Narrator describes Tyler's relationship with Marla in the opening pages of the original book. "This is about property as in ownership. Without Marla, Tyler would have nothing."
Tyler's connection to Angel Face may not run as deep as with Marla in Fight Club, but Angel Face is still a useful vessel for him, one that someone as possessive as Tyler isn't willing to give up so easily. On the chance that Angel Face may have harbored these feelings in the original Fight Club, it also re-contextualizes their previous dynamic. It certainly offers a new explanation as to why Angel Face stays a follower of Project Mayhem/Fight Club for a decade after the Narrator beat him up. Most certainly, it further complicates Fight Club's iconic twisted love triangle of Marla, Tyler, and the Narrator.
