‘It would be an honor for me to beat your a**’: Jarrell Miller calls out Tyson Fury and calls himself ‘the best and greatest option’ for the Gypsy King as the American eyes another title fight after missing Anthony Joshua due to a failed drug test
- Tyson Fury has been linked to a number of high-profile fights in recent weeks
- The boxer recently confirmed he is back in talks with Anthony Joshua
- He has now been called up by undefeated American heavyweight Jarrell Miller
Jarrell Miller called out Tyson Fury and claimed he was the “best and greatest option” for the heavyweight champion of the world.
Fury has been linked with a number of high profile fights in recent weeks and recently confirmed he is in talks with Anthony Joshua, although Eddie Hearn has denied his claims that a draft contract has been sent.
With a unification bout against Oleksansdr Usyk seemingly off the table at the moment as the Ukrainian prepares to fight Daniel Dubois in August, the Gypsy King has also been linked with Australian boxers Demsey McKean and Jai Opetaia.
Fury claimed he would fight UFC legend Jon Jones, but only in a fight under boxing rules because “I don’t roll on the floor.”
Miller has now thrown his hat in the ring, as he said in a video posted to Twitter: “Look, let’s tell my boy the Gypsy King AKA Tyson Fury, I heard you were looking for an opponent.”

‘Let’s lay the s*** down, you know who’s the best and biggest option, and that’s your boy here. Your people call mine, work on the dollar signs and it works.
‘Gypsy King vs Big Baby sounds good. It would be my official honor to beat your ass. Make sure that this happens.’
Fury gave a cryptic response to the video, tweeting three thinking emojis. It looks like the 34-year-old is either puzzled by the call or genuinely considering the fight.
If that were to happen, the Fury fight would be a chance for Miller to redeem himself for his first shot at the world heavyweight title.

He was supposed to fight Anthony Joshua at Madison Square Gardens in 2019 but was denied a license for the fight after failing a drug test.
Andy Ruiz fought in his place and pulled off one of the greatest heists in boxing history by defeating Joshua and becoming the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion of the world.
Miller was banned for six months by the WBA after the positive test and fought for the first time in nearly four years last June.
The American has contested three fights since his return, winning all three, and remains undefeated as a professional boxer with 26 wins and one draw in his 27 fights.
