Former WBA ‘regular’ heavyweight champion Daniel Dubois weighed in at 239 lbs, and his opponent, the hefty Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller, came in at 333 pounds on Friday at their weigh-in for Saturday night’s ten round bout on the ‘Day of Reckoning’ card at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

There’s been a lot of trash talk done by Miller in the build-up to this fight, and the much younger 26-year-old Dubois can’t wait to get in there and piece ‘Big Baby’ up on Saturday night. He believes he’s going to obliterate the chunky-looking Millers, whose physique appears to have softened in the last four years.

Dubois (19-2, 18 KOs) is the favorite to defeat the 35-year-old ‘Big Baby’ Miller (26-0-1, 22 KOs), whose career has been sputtering along since he missed out on a mega-million payday fight against former IBF, WBA & WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua in June 2019.

Not surprisingly, ‘Dynamite’ Dubois is still bitter about his loss to IBF/WBA/WBO champion Oleksandr Usyk last August in Wroclaw, Poland.

Dubois views that loss as a “robbery,” and so do many other fans, considering he dropped Usyk with a huge right hand to the midsection in the fifth round, only to have the referee rule it as a low blow. Replays showed that it was a belt-line shot and should have been ruled as a knockdown. Dubois fell apart soon after and was stopped in the ninth round.

“This is the fight game. You have to expect this. I’m here to beat him and put him to sleep and get back into the big time,” said Daniel Dubois to Secondsout about his fight with Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller on Saturday night.

“Put him to sleep, that’s the plan. Make him quit and turn it all around. I’m excited about this opportunity. It’s a great card to be on. I’m blessed. Every fight is important now. At this stage where I’m at now, this is it.

“After coming off what I feel was a robbery last time [against IBF, WBA & WBO heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk last August in Wroclaw, Poland], this is the fight I need to win, kick his a** and go home and get back into big-time boxing.

“Yeah, they better be testing his a**,” said Dubois when asked if Jarrell Miller’s past history of positive PED tests have him concerned. “All of that, you can’t protect that chin. Let’s go out and test it. Everything,” said Dubois when asked for one thing that he does better than ‘Big Baby’ Miller.
