Following the heavyweight weigh-in for Jarrell Miller and Mariusz Wach one team member came out with a hilarious remark.
Heavyweights are the only division who don’t need to make weight in boxing and can come in as heavy as they like.
Having said this, in the modern professional sports landscape we live in today, this is not meant to be an excuse to come in overly heavy or proceed to gorge one’s self after the weigh-in.
American Jarrell Miller returns to action tonight against the respected and always tough Mariusz Wach and following the pair’s weigh-in yesterday, a member of Miller’s extended team or friends circle can be heard shouting:
“No cheese burgers. After this – cheese burgers baby! Lets go Jarrell!”

Perhaps brilliant in it’s sheer simplicity, really.
It earned a lot of laughs but Miller knows it will be all business tonight if he is to continue his aspirations of wanting a shot at one of the heavyweight champions next year.
Miller finds himself just below world title level on the fringes alongside the likes of Dillian Whyte and Hughie Fury.
Tonight will tell an awful lot about how much Miller (19-0-1-17KO) has if a determined Wach shows up – Wach has only ever been defeated by Wladimir Klitschko and Alexander Povetkin.
