By BBN Staff: Belizean-American Jarrell Miller is about to make history as the first Belizean to fight for the World Heavy Weight Boxing Championship and his local manager, Jason Edwards, is appealing for Belizeans to show their support.
Edwards said that his team is planning to host a series of parties as a show of support leading up to the fight, which is scheduled for June 1 at the iconic Madison Square Garden arena in New York.
“Its very important that we as Belizeans get behind him. He has always represented Belize in all his fights. Represented Belize as much as he could,” Edwards said.
Miller has a fight record of 21 wins, no losses, and one draw after his April 2018 victory over French boxer and former European Heavyweight Champion, Johann Duhaupas. He is going up against defending champion, British boxer Anthony Joshua.
Apart from having a 22-0 winning streak, Joshua is currently a unified world heavyweight champion, holding three of the four major championships in boxing: the International Boxing Federation (IBF) title since 2016, the World Boxing Association (WBA) (Super) title since 2017, and the World Boxing Organization (WBO) title since 2018. He has also held the International Boxing Organization (IBO) title since 2017.
