Jarrell Miller now trains with Kevin Cunningham and hopes for a return in early 2022
Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller (23-0-1) has resumed training.
The former heavyweight contender has teamed up with world-class coach Kevin Cunningham and works out of his South Florida training facility.
His last appearance in the ring was in 2018 when he stopped Bogdan Dinu in 4 rounds in Kansas.
He sadly missed a salary of almost $ 5 million in 2019 for a fight against Unified Champion Anthony Joshua due to several failed tests for performance-enhancing drugs.
In 2020, he signed a co-promotion deal with Top Rank but was released after failing another test for a banned substance ahead of his slated July 9 promotional debut against Jerry Forrest. Top Rank posted Miller shortly thereafter.
Cunningham said Miller was doing everything by the rules and promised he wouldn’t have any more problems.
“Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller’s skills are unmatched by other heavyweights in boxing. I will help him take things to another level from a technical and technical point of view. Anyone who knows me knows I’m a straight shooter and above all I do. Big Baby assured me that he was following all commission protocols to rectify his past situation. I’ve always believed in second chances, ”Cunningham told BoxingScene.com.
Miller hopes to return to action early in 2022 in a meaningful fight, Cunningham said. If he is successful, Cunningham would love to see him fight a high profile opponent on his next appearance in the ring.
