Jarrell Miller says he intends to fly Daniel Dubois out to his US camp for sparring in the coming months.
Miller will challenge Anthony Joshua for the unified world titles on June 1 and is in talks to recruit one of the UK’s best young heavyweights to join his preparations.
When asked if he’ll be sparring any bigger guys than himself as potential prep for the AJ fight, Miller told Hawksbee and Jacobs on talkSPORT: “Bigger than me?
“Yeah, there’s no guys bigger than me, that’s not possible at this point.
“And for him [Joshua] to find guys as big as me that can move like me is not happening because there is none.”

The 6ft 4in heavyweight is set to face a taller opponent than himself in the form of 6ft 6in Anthony Joshua – something he does intend to get used to before the bout.
Jarrell Miller explained that one of his likely sparring partners is a name that will be familiar to British boxing fans as he is one of the hottest young talents in the country today.
“I found a couple of guys that’s a little taller than me,” Miller continued, “I wanna say one name, I heard the kid’s a badass – Daniel Dubois.
“I like the kid, I like him a lot, I like his energy and I heard he’s thumped AJ a couple times down in the gym as well, too.
“So I’m a fan of his. Me and his team are talking. I’m gonna see what he brings to the table and bring him to camp.”
Daniel Dubois is 9-0 (8 KOs) at just 21 years of age. His next bout is on March 8 against Razvan Cojanu.
After that, he will be free to potentially fly out and spar with Miller, just as he did with Alexander Povetkin before his defeat to AJ last year.
