Jarrell Miller Scheduled for 10 Rounds on July Card Featuring Rydell Mayes Jr.

Tri-Star Boxing will be back in Murfreesboro, TN on July 23 for a stacked card featuring local
heroes Rydell “Super” Mayes Jr. and Luis “El Taino” Galarza. Also, as a can’t miss special
attraction, heavyweight contender Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller will continue his comeback. The
night of professional boxing will feature nine bouts at Embassy Suites.

Mayes Jr., (12-1, 11 KOs), is coming off an October TKO victory over Carlos Reyes, but was in
training for our April 23 card when he was sidelined by illness. For his return, the big-punching
Mayes Jr. will rematch Jaden Booth, who handed him his lone defeat in February 2021. In that
heavyweight war, both boxers were out on their feet. Mayes Jr. nearly ended matters in the first,
but Booth rallied to hurt Mayes Jr. in the third and force a stoppage. Mayes Jr. has since trained
with cruiserweight belt-holder Ilunga Makabu and is determined to set the record straight on July
23 in the eight-round main event.

“I lost one fight, but I need that back. It’s time to right the wrong.”

Luis Galarza, (27-4, 18 KOs), will be seeking his eighth consecutive victory and the opportunity
to secure a world class opponent down the line. Galarza last lost to Austin Trout back in 2015.
The referee stopped the bout between rounds after the sixth. The popular Puerto Rican boxer has
fought five times in the past fourteen months and has kept his fans hungry for more with his
aggressive style. Galarza has become a must-see fighter for Tri-Star audiences and will fight in a
welterweight contest over six rounds.

“I am very excited. Working hard every and always looking to put a show on for the fans.”

As a special attraction, heavyweight contender Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller will continue his
comeback on the Tri-Star Boxing event. Miller is represented by Greg Cohen Promotions and
Salita Promotions. Miller was away from the since late 2018, but picked up his first comeback
win on June 23 in Argentina. Miller won a ten-round unanimous decision over Ariel Esteban
Bracamonte. His bout in Murfreesboro will be his first on U.S. soil in nearly four years. Miller
remain unbeaten at (24-0-1, 20 KOs). Miller is scheduled for ten rounds.

“I look forward to getting back in the ring July 23. The plan is to fight every month, shake off this rust and get back to where I need to be over the next few months. Big Baby is back!”

Also seeing action, Miguel Gomez of Antioch seeks his third professional victory in a four-round
affair at lightweight. This hot young talent seeks to remain busy and is becoming popular with
the local boxing audiences. Gomez won by fourth-round TKO on Tri-Star Boxing’s July 1 card
in Nashville. Gomez dropped Travis Crain three times before ending matters in impressive
fashion. Gomez trains Music City Boxing where former world champion Caleb Plant came up as
a professional.

Also on the card, UFC veteran Alan Belcher will continue his boxing campaign. Now (4-0, 4
KOs), Belcher won impressively on our April card in Oak Grove, KY and will fight as a
heavyweight against Rayford Johnson, a veteran of forty bouts. Belcher-Johnson is scheduled for
four rounds along with other bouts of the same distance. Belcher is currently the number one
contender in BKFC. In addition, Memphis-native Joey Bryant, (17-1, 13 KOs), will box in a
welterweight bout scheduled for six rounds.

“We are really excited to be back in Murfreesboro. This will be our seventh event at home and third at the Embassy Suites. Rydell has been training extremely hard and is ready for his rematch. He is determined to avenge his lone defeat.”
