Miller vs. Browne in November
|Heavyweight Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller (25-0-1, 20 KOs), 34, of Brooklyn, New York, is slated for the second fight of his comeback against Ebenezer Tetteh (20-1, 17 KOs), 34, of Ghana, in a 10-rounder that will headline a card on Oct. 3 in Almaty, Kazakhstan, promoter Greg Cohen told Fight Freaks Unite.|
Tetteh’s only loss came by first-round knockout to Daniel Dubois in September 2019. Tetteh won his only fight since.
A Miller win with no injuries would propel him into a November fight with Lucas Browne (31-3, 27 KOs), 43, of Australia. Cohen and promoter Lou DiBella, who holds an option on Browne’s next fight based on his first-round knockout of June Fa in June, said they have a deal in place for the bout.
Miller is coming off a fourth-round knockout of Derek Cardenas on July 23 in his second win in a row against a low-level opponent since returning to the ring in June as he shakes off the rust and tries to get back into fighting shape after being idle since November 2018.
Miller was out of action because of several positive tests for performance-enhancing drugs that caused multiple bouts to be canceled (including a multi-million dollar shot at then-unified heavyweight titlist Anthony Joshua in December 2019) and a suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
He returned for a unanimous decision over Argentina’s Ariel Esteban Bracamonte on June 23 on the WBA KO Drugs Festival card in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The date and site for Miller against Browne, who has his own sorted history with PEDs, is not settled. Cohen said it would either headline a card on Nov. 13 in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates or take place on Nov. 26 at The O2 in London on card secondary heavyweight titlist Dubois is due to headline, although that card has not yet been formally announced.
