Boxing Star Jarrell Miller Fights to Remove Ankle Monitor, Citing Training Interference

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Boxing star Jarrell Miller is requesting the removal of his ankle monitor, claiming that it is hindering his ability to train for future fights. Miller’s attorney filed a motion last week to amend the conditions of his pre-trial release, arguing that the monitor limits his training as a professional fighter. The judge is expected to rule on the motion today in a Broward County courtroom.

Miller is currently facing charges of carjacking without a firearm and burglary with assault or battery after allegedly assaulting an employee on a car dealership lot and stealing a truck. Despite the charges against him, Miller maintains his innocence and has pleaded not guilty. He also posted on his social media pages, expressing his hope for a favorable resolution of the case.

Miller’s lawyer argues that the ankle monitor should be removed because the boxer has no previous history of trouble and is not a flight risk. However, prosecutors have yet to respond to the motion.

In a recently obtained police video of Miller’s arrest, he appears to be in a jovial mood, joking around with the officers. The video, taken on January 2, shows Miller displaying a lighthearted demeanor despite the serious allegations.

Miller, who last fought Daniel Dubois in December, is eager to resume training for his next bout. However, the ankle monitor has become a hindrance to his preparation. Miller believes that the removal of the monitor is necessary to allow him to fully focus on his training and career as a professional boxer.

The judge’s ruling on the motion for the removal of the ankle monitor will determine whether Miller can proceed with his training without any restrictions. The decision is awaited in the Broward County courtroom today.
