Jarrell Miller is a happy man today and why wouldn’t he be?

He’s just landed one of the biggest fights in boxing against all the odds after months of negotiations by heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua to take on other — more notable fighters.

Granted, Miller was not the first fight for Joshua in terms of choice next up but he certainly doesn’t care with the big pay day that’s ahead and the opportunity to realize an ambition in becoming heavyweight champion of the world.

Here’s more of his reaction to the Anthony Joshua news today on his social media account:

Huge news for him — no doubt about it.

Not long ago on social media Miller posted that he was considering a move in sport entirely to the NFL from boxing should an appropriate offer had come in due to frustrations in what he perceived as ‘greed’ in the heavyweight division at the moment.

The division and money in boxing continues to grow which is only a positive thing for fighters at the end of the day who take some of the biggest risks out of professional athletes worldwide.

Miller is scheduled to take on Anthony Joshua on June 1st at Madison Square Garden in New York.
