- Jarrell Miller tipped the scales at 333lbs as he continues his return to the ring

Jarrell Miller tipped the scales at an enormous 333lbs as he prepares to face off against former WBA world champion Lucas Browne on Saturday.
The monstrous total is a career-high for the American, and makes him heavier than every heavyweight champion in boxing history based on their championship weight, including 7ft former David Haye foe Nikolai Valuev.
The bout marks Miller’s first of 2023, and third since returning from a extended hiatus from the sport following a failed drug test in 2019.
At that time ‘Big Baby’ had racked up a perfect record across 18 contests was set for the biggest opportunity of his burgeoning career when he was named as the opponent for Anthony Joshua’s US bow.
However, the former kickboxer would ultimately test positive for banned substance GW501516, with further tests also detecting EPO and HGH leading to Miller being issued a ban by the New York State Athletic Commission.

Joshua would instead go on to face Andy Ruiz Jr on short notice, with the unheralded Mexican shocking the world by rising from the canvas to stop AJ in the seventh round.
After four years outside the ring, Miller’s return to action saw him defeat journeyman Ariel Esteban Bracamonte over eight rounds in Buenos Aires before following that up with a stoppage win against Derek Cardenas.
Meanwhile the 43-year-old Browne is coming off a shock first-round knockout victory over Junior Fa back in June.
Despite the impressive win over the Commonwealth bronze medalist Browne revealed earlier this week that he was passed over as a potential opponent for Daniel Dubois, with the Aussie claiming the British Boxing Board of Control had rejected him because he is too old.
