Heavyweight Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller (23-0-1, 20 KOs) took just four rounds to take Bogdan Dinu (18-1, 14 KOs) unbeaten record at the Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane, Kansas on Saturday night.
Miller with a weight advantage of 78lbs was able to impose his size by walking down Dinu before dropping him in the fourth. Dinu beat the count but was knocked out shortly after with the time at 2:45.
“Dillon Whyte calls himself ‘the body snatcher,’ but c’mon now. We both know he don’t throw body shots like me” said Miller “Guys like Joyce that I keep hearing makes no sense. He needs to earn his stripes and get in line. I want the big names. I paid my dues.”
WBA/IBF female middleweight champion Claressa “T-Rex” Shields (7-0, 2 KOs) continued her dominance with a wide ten round unanimous decision over Hannah Rankin (5-3, 1 KO). Shields took control of the contest from the opening bell and never allowed Rankin back in to the contest. The scorecards mirrored the domination by 100-90 across the board.
“She was tough, she was good, but guess what? I was better” said Shields “I will say it again, I’m the best female fighter in the world. Not sure if that Hammer fight ever happens so I’m going to just keep knocking the door down and beating everyone in my path.”
