Boxing News: Jarrell Miller: There's only one Big Baby » June 30 … – 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?

UFC news: Erin Blanchfield gives update on next fight, title hopes – MMA Junkie

Published

on





Erin Blanchfield patiently awaits her next UFC assignment.
Although it’s not totally clear what that will be, Blanchfield (12-1 MMA, 6-0 UFC) assumes an important matchup with Manon Fiorot (11-1 MMA, 6-0 UFC) is likely. The two flyweight combatants have established themselves as top contenders in a division that awaits a championship rematch between champion Alexa Grasso and former champion Valentina Shevchenko while they both recover from injury.
“Yeah, it’s definitely stalling,” Blanchfield recently said during an online live stream for digital wallet platform HUMBL. “I feel like I’ve had a couple No. 1 contender fights now. But you know, I’m still pretty young and gained valuable experience in those fights. … Whether it’s an interim or not, I’ll beat (Fiorot), and then I should definitely get a title next.”
Although UFC CEO Dana White has indicated it’s next, no timeline has been revealed for Grasso (16-3-1 MMA, 8-3-1 UFC) vs. Shevchenko (23-4-1 MMA, 12-3-1 UFC). Shevchenko had hand surgery in mid-September. Coincidentally, Grasso underwent hand surgery in early October.
Should there be further delays, Blanchfield wouldn’t mind seeing an interim title implemented. She’s healthy and ready to go, following a slight nasal fracture suffered in a unanimous decision win over Taila Santos in August.
“I haven’t been told about that yet,” Blanchfield said. I would definitely push for that. That’s something I’d definitely be interested in. I’m not sure when Valentina and Alexa are going to be ready to fight again. I know I think they’re on a similar timeline in their recovery. I would hope that if it ends up being longer, they’d have me and Manon fight for an interim.”

2 dead after fight outside Sacramento County bar leads to shooting – CBS News

Published

Watch CBS News
By Brandon Downs, Cecilio Padilla
/ CBS Sacramento
SACRAMENTO COUNTY – Two men died after they were shot outside of a bar in Sacramento County early Sunday morning, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office said. 
Deputies responded to Sacto By Night at 7121 Governors Circle at about 1:45 a.m. 
A group of people who were leaving the bar got into a fight outside, leading to a shooting, deputies said. 
The victims, who were two men, died at the scene, deputies said. One of them was the owner of the bar.
Investigators with the sheriff’s office believe a group of gang members who initially refused to leave the nightclub at closing is at the center of the incident. Those gang members apparently got involved in a fight in the parking lot, investigators said, with the suspected shooter being one of those gang members.
Witnesses described a white vehicle that took off from the scene. Deputies said the CHP located a vehicle matching the description and detained four people from that vehicle. 
The people detained have since been identified as being allegedly involved in the shooting. Several guns have been recovered. 
According to the sheriff’s office, the names of the suspects will be released once homicide and related charges are filed.
Brandon comes to CBS13 from Action News Now (KHSL/KNVN) in Chico where he spent two years as the Digital Content Manager.

AI Fight Club Webinar: A Manufacturing Debate on AI's Real Value – Yahoo Finance

Published

on





Rootstock Software hosts premier panel of contrarians to discuss the role of AI in optimizing demand, supply chain, and production decisions
SAN RAMON, Calif., November 21, 2023–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Rootstock Software, a recognized leader in the Manufacturing Cloud ERP space, is excited to announce its upcoming webinar, "AI Fight Club: A Debate on AI’s Real Value in Manufacturing," on Thursday, December 7, 11:00 am PT / 2:00 pm ET. This event promises to be an energetic discussion on the potential and practical applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in manufacturing.
AI technology vendors often promise revolutionary changes to manufacturing operations and traditional processes. This webinar offers a practical look at where manufacturers have seen true ROI from AI, what types of AI are currently delivering value, and what strategies they’re using to lay a foundation for success.
The panel of experts includes Michael Wind, Founder and Partner at Perpetua Advisors; Sam Gupta, Principal Consultant at ElevatIQ; and Raj Badarinath, Chief Product and Marketing Officer at Rootstock Software. They’ll engage in a lively exchange and review insights from Rootstock’s recent "State of AI in Manufacturing Survey."
"With all of the hype around AI, manufacturers are approaching it with a healthy dose of skepticism," said Raj Badarinath. "Our panel will help them discern extravagant claims from real-world benefits. My role is to steer our panelists in a dynamic and engaging discussion, but also have them share specific examples and use cases, which will resonate with manufacturers."
"At Perpetua Advisors, we believe all layers of business are critical to the success of technology, including systems, data, and people," said Michael Wind. "AI is not something manufacturers can just drop into their operations and expect instant ROI. In the webinar, we’ll discuss how AI is dependent on many facets of a business – like frontend and backend processes. Capabilities must fit well with existing infrastructure, and quality of data is crucial. In the end, AI’s most practical use, especially in manufacturing, is not to replace human effort but to augment it to optimize efficiency and decision-making."
Sam Gupta weighed in on his perspective for the panel: "At ElevatIQ, we approach technology from an agnostic point of view, focusing on what will truly drive success for customers. With regard to AI and ERP solutions, manufacturers are clamoring for greater understanding. My role is akin to a ‘technological therapist,’ helping clients navigate the market and identify solutions aligned with their comfort and technical maturity. I look forward to challenging the predominant AI narratives and urging attendees to focus on solutions that address tangible business problems rather than getting swept up in the latest trends. It’s also crucial to have a candid conversation about the actual readiness and relevance of AI in the manufacturing sector, which, in many cases, is still grappling with the basics of enterprise solution adoption and data management."

Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway says the billionaire Haslam family tried to bribe at least 15 executives at the Pilot truck stop chain with millions of dollars to get them to inflate the company’s profits this year because that would force Berkshire to pay more for the Haslams’ remaining 20% stake in the company. The Berkshire claim in a counter lawsuit filed this week comes after the Haslam family — which includes Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and former Tennessee governor Bill Haslam — accused Berkshire of trying to understate Pilot’s earnings this year by changing its accounting practices.
