Not one, but TWO “Big Babies” are coming your way on July 9!

Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller will fight for the first time since Nov. 2018, making his Top Rank debut against Jerry Forrest in the heavyweight main event from the so-called “Bubble” at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and ESPN.com reports that Jared “Big Baby” Anderson will be on the undercard.

The 20-year-old Anderson (4-0, 4 KO) is a top heavyweight prospect and just fought on June 9, stopping Johnnie Langston in the third round. It was the first of his pro fights to get out of the first round.

Anderson is one of Top Rank’s top heavyweight prospects, along with Guido Vianello and Sonny Conto, and is being groomed for potential stardom down the line. He’s got the size and presence, and the skills seem to be for real, though of course there’s plenty of work to do, as there is for any 20-year-old fighter.

We can assume Anderson will be in another six-round bout.
