As Miller gets 'locked in' on Dubois, promoter Salita expects big fights against Fury, Wilder, Joshua, thereafter

Motor-mouth heavyweight Jarrell Miller has been in electric promotional form this week but just as he calms down to focus on Saturday opponent Daniel Dubois, his promoter Dmitry Salita says a big win can provide the momentum to fight against the division's biggest hitters.

"I'm tired of roasting these guys all week," Miller said Thursday. "I just want to punch [Dubois] already. I'm going to cook this shrimp.I'm looked in on Dubois now."

Though the highly-anticipated Day of Reckoning show in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia features Otto Wallin against Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder fighting Joseph Parker, it is Miller's match against Dubois that is widely regarded as the most competitive on paper.

This was not lost on lead promoter Frank Warren who said: "This fight, on paper, is a 50-50 fight and might be the most competitive fight on the night."

Regarding his boxer Dubois, Warren said: "He’s in a tough fight, coming off a very tough fight against [Oleksandr] Usyk. Daniel shows to me he’s got the power [as] he gave Usyk his toughest test at heavyweight, and exposed a weakness around the middle.

"Daniel has power. But at the end of the fight, people questioned his commitment, and so now he’s got to get out there and show what he’s all about."

Warren said this is "a good fight" for Miller as well. And that both fighters are "at a level where they need to put in a performance that’s eye catching, next level."

For Salita, Miller is Dubois' "toughest opponent." However, he feels it is a match his boxer will win. "I believe Jarrell is going to be explosive and impressive, and put him in big fights" in the future.

"I think Jarrell … with an impressive win he puts himself in the picture against Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua, with Usyk, Wilder, etc."
