Miller hasn’t had a professional fight since November 2018, but is ready to return
Miller’s career has been put on hold in recent years after going undefeated in his first 24 professional fights.
He was set to face Anthony Joshua for the Briton’s heavyweight titles in June 2019, and the pair famously clashed at a press conference in New York ahead of their match-up.
However, ‘Big Baby’ was forced to withdraw from the competition just six weeks before it was due to take place after failing multiple drug tests.
He was then replaced by Andy Ruiz Jr, who would cause a major shock by beating Joshua at Madison Square Garden.

However, their fight never took place because Miller failed multiple drug tests before the match
After missing his shot at Joshua, Miller was given a six-month suspension by the WBA and was set to return against Jerry Forrest in July 2020.
However, he failed another drug test leading up to that fight and was banned, this time by the Nevada Athletic Commission.
Two years later, Miller is finally about to take another step in the square circle.
His opponent, Bracamonte, may be remembered on these shores for his back-and-forth battle against popular heavyweight Dave Allen in 2018.
Bracamonte took on Allen on the undercard of Oleksandr Usyk-Tony Bellew’s undisputed cruiserweight bout in Manchester, giving the Englishman everything he could before being pulled through his corner at the end of the seventh round.
