Undefeated Jarrell Miller stops tough Mariusz Wach in 9.
The extremely colourful undefeated heavyweight contender Jarrell Miller 20-0 (18 Ko's) stayed on course for a title shot as he pounded out a ninth round stoppage of former world title challenger Mariusz Wach 33-3 (17 Ko's) at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale New York on Saturday evening. Miller, a deceptively busy 283lbs, outworked the 6 foot 8 pole, who unfortunately appeared to lack ambition. Ringside physicians began to take a close look at Wach between rounds from the 7th round on, although not visibly shaken, he did seem to be shipping a lot of head shots, coercing the corner to call a halt midway through the ninth.. Miller coming in 15 pounds lighter than his last outing looked impressive although self admittedly lacked the snap he had in the Washington bout, possibly due to overtraining.. Wach is always an awkward guy to stop and the result is impressive regardless.. The usually outspoken Miller, now with Eddie Hearns Matchroom promotions, is looking to a future meeting with Dillian Whyte, a bout that could actually materialise..
