Jarrell Miller Biggest Win Crushes Lucas Browne Round 6/Bad Lef Hook/ProBox TV
The formidable heavyweight challenger was finally able to defeat Australian veteran Lucas Browne in the sixth round, when he dropped and stopped his fight at The Agenda, Dubai. Browne recovered from the knockdown, but Miller unleashed a series of heavy punches that the referee intervened and stopped the action at 2:33 of round six.
Brooklyn native Miller took his record to 26-0-1 and recorded his 22nd knockout. Browne of Australia (31-4, 27 KOs) lost by knockout for the fourth time in 35 professional fights. “Sometimes you can’t knock everyone out right away,” Miller told announcer Tyron Woodley in the ring. “You know, I’ve been out for 3½ years and Lucas was the first opponent to come here [dan] that I know can break it.”
“He surprised a lot of people and was on a winning streak, so I knew if I couldn’t knock him out in the first round I had to take my time. And, you know, sometimes when you’re outside the ring, that nervous energy is there, your feet aren’t directly by your side. But I feel comfortable. But like I said before, four [tahun] rest, I am up against a former champion, he is game. Nothing but love and respect for Lucas,” Miller said.
Jarrell Miller’s successful TKO victory at 1.93 m and 151 kilograms over Browne was his biggest win since November 2018, when he knocked out Romanian Bogdan Dinu (18-0 then) in the fourth round at the Kansas Star Arena , Mulvane, Kansas. Browne, who hails from Perth, is 43 years old, but he stopped the top seed, Junior Fa (20-2, 11 KOs), in the first round of his performance on 5 June at Marvel Stadium, Melbourne, Australia.
Miller, 34, is fighting for the third time since he was cleared to resume his career on June 23 following a harsh suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission for failing a test for performance-enhancing drugs. Miller tested positive for an unspecified banned substance weeks before he was supposed to face Jerry Forrest in July 2020 at the MGM Grand Conference Center in Las Vegas.
Fifteen months earlier, Miller had tested positive for four banned substances and was dropped from a profitable fight against Anthony Joshua, then undefeated IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO champion, in June 2019 at Madison Square Garden, New York .
On Saturday night, Browne was competitive and landed a lot of punches. However, Browne began to tire and eventually was unable to deal with Miller’s volume and power. Three right punches from Miller had Browne cornered at the ropes. He eventually fell to the canvas with 52 seconds remaining in the sixth round.
Browne beat the count easily, but he couldn’t hold on much longer. A right from Miller sent Browne withdrawing in under 1:10 in the sixth and started the round that ended the 10 rounds scheduled.
