By BBN Staff: During Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller’s recent return to Belize, the Belizean/American boxer said that he wants to contribute positively to the sport; contributions that the Belize Boxing Federation says it welcomes.
Miller spoke to the press last week about the road ahead for his career following his disqualification from competing for the Heavy Weight Championship title in June 2019, after he tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs. He outlined some of the things he and his manager James Prince are working on, but also noted that he wants to use the platform to promote boxing in Belize.
Miller, who is undefeated with 20 of his 23 fights won by knockout, said that boxing has had a positive impact on his life in his youth and he wants to ensure that the sport has that same impact on many other Belizean youths.
“I think right now we could definitely do a fight in Belize but what I’d like to start doing is exhibitions in the Civic Center, it doesn’t really have to even be on a major worldwide level it would just be something for Belize…” Miller said. “…one of my main goals is to put on fights or even do exhibitions in the country and just shine an even bigger and brighter light on Belize.”
President of the Belize Boxing Federation, Moses Sulph, said that the federation welcomes collaborating with Miller to give the sport the kind of upgrade he has been looking forward to for years now.
Sulph says that the sport needs not just investment, but serious commitment if Belizeans, particularly the youth are to benefit from the possible gains of doing well.
“Boxing has the potential to save many of our youth, females, and males all we need is a little resources including a good ring and can start on our ROAD TO GLORY,” Sulph said.
Sulph added that he did not get a chance to speak to Miller but looks forward to the opportunity.
