Jarrell Miller HEADLINES TONIGHT on Salita Card in Brooklyn

Jarrell-Miller

BROOKLYN (June 4, 2015) – Boxing is on an upswing. It has become more visible and popular, and a great card will be front and center and on display in Brooklyn tonight.

Dmitriy Salita is excited and proud to present a night of professional boxing, the very first boxing event to be held at the LIU Paramount Center, in Downtown Brooklyn, on Thursday, June 4.

Brooklyn is the hottest borough in NYC, and Salita promises the action, on a card topped by Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller, will reflect that reality. “We are so proud to bring the sport to which all others aspire to this fabulous venue,” Salita said. “Over the last few years, Star of David Promotions has brought New York boxing fans exciting shows with incredible fights through our Brooklyn Brawl Series. This card will be an exciting addition to our series.”

Miller (12-0-1 with 10 Kos) is an emerging star in the heavyweight division, and figures to be in a throw-down with Detroit's Damon McCreary (15-4) in the feature bout. Miller was asked for his prediction, and he replied that he would win, “By first round knockout!”

Other hitters set to take part in the historic evening include: middleweight Akil Auguste, welterweight Julian Sosa, cruiserweight talent Steve Geffrard, elite amateur super bantam Michael Stoute, lightweight Dwayne Zeigler and welterweight Edward Williams. “This June 4 boxing event will reintroduce LIU Brooklyn Paramount to the sports community,” said Brett Yormark, CEO of Barclays Center, who is instrumental in bringing boxing back to this region in a high-profile way. “Dmitriy has provided great opportunities for aspiring fighters and we are looking forward to working with him to solidify our grassroots boxing efforts in Brooklyn.””

The first bell is at 7:00, so make sure you head on over, and get ready to see some superb action.

“The card will feature up and coming boxers who are potentially the superstars of tomorrow,” Salita said in closing.

BROOKLYN (June 3, 2015) – Do not make the mistake of being fooled by his nickname, “Big Baby.”

Heavyweight prospect Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller possesses adult-sized power, and he's the one making opponents mess their trunks when he steps in with them, and starts unloading power shots.

The 6-4, 270 pound Brooklyn-based boxer gloves up Thursday, June 4, in Brooklyn, on a show promoted by Dmitriy Salita's Star of David Promotions.

Miller, age 26, faces off with Michigan's Damon “Bulldog” McCreary, who sports a 15-4 record.

Miller offered his prediction of what will go down on Thursday night, TONIGHT, at the LIU Brooklyn Paramount Theater. Or, rather, who…

“I will win by first round knockout,” Miller stated. “The jab will be the key. McCreary is a jittery fighter. The jab will calm him down and then I will bring the power.”

Longer term, Miller says he's looking to build his record to 20-0, and then? “Look out Anthony Joshua! I'm looking at you!” Joshua is a Brit boxer, who is making noise in the heavyweight division. Miller knows he can upset his apple-cart, soon.

First up, McCreary, though.

Promoter Salita spoke about the show and Miller's promise. “I am honored to promote the first boxing show at this historic venue, the Brooklyn Paramount Theater,” Salita said. “It will feature Brooklyn's own undefeated heavyweight sensation Jarrell Miller, who will electrify NYC. The buzz is building around Miller, me and co-promoter Greg Cohen are keeping him busy. He also fights June 26.With his power, and his charisma–his smile lights up a room!–I think the sky is the limit for “Big Baby!”

The Paramount is located at Long Island University, 1 University Plaza, Brooklyn, NY.
