Jarrell Miller (born July 15, 1988) is an American professional boxer and former kickboxer who competes in the heavyweight division. He first came to prominence in 2007 when he competed for the New Jersey Tigers in the World Combat League and made it to the finals of the New York Golden Gloves tournament that same year. Miller was due to challenge Anthony Joshua for the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles in 2019, but was denied a license to box after failing multiple drug tests.In 2018, Miller was ranked as the world's seventh-best heavyweight by BoxRec, and eighth by The Ring.Miller was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. His mother is of Belizean and Irish descent, his father is of Haitian and Dominican descent. He took up Muay Thai at the age of 14, as a way to defend himself after being attacked on the street. He began boxing at the age of 16. Miller has highlighted some of his early boxing idols, including Mike Tyson and Riddick Bowe.As an amateur boxer, Miller reached the final of the 2007 New York Golden Gloves Heavyweight tournament at the Madison Square Garden in New York, where he lost to Tor Hamer on points (4-1). Miller had an amateur record of 10–1, with 7 wins by knockout. Miller had a limited amateur career due to him being forced to turn professional as he was also a professional kickboxer.Miller made his professional boxing debut at the age of 21 on July 18, 2009 at the Plattduetsche Park Restaurant, in Franklin Square, New York. His opponent was an experienced 36-year-old Darius Whitson in a scheduled 4-round bout. Miller won the fight by TKO in the first round due to the ring doctor stopping the match because of a cut Darius Whitson received from an accidental headbutt. After a 22-month break from boxing, in May 2011, Miller defeated Isaac Villanueva via third-round TKO at the Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan.
