Jarrell 'Big Baby' Miller stopped Tomasz Adamek in the second round and then called for a showdown with world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.
The New Yorker has been named as a potential opponent for unified title holder Joshua and he made short work of Adamek, who failed to beat the count after he was blasted to the canvas in Chicago.
Miller, who weighed a whopping 317lbs, marched forward in the opening round, clubbing away with hooks, and Adamek almost wilted after an early body shot.
But Adamek was overpowered by Miller in the second as a right hook sent him stumbling backwards, and then an uppercut dropped him to his knees by the ropes.
The Pole's battling desire had been beaten out of him and he remained on his haunches until the fight was waved off.
Miller could next receive a fight against Fres Oquendo for the WBA 'regular' title, and he remains eager to share the ring with Joshua, the WBA 'super', IBF and WBO champion.
"I've been earning a shot against Anthony Joshua, but when it comes to boxing, there's all these politics, they try to manoeuvre," said Miller.
"Eddie Hearn is keeping him away from me right now, but what can I say about Eddie. He's made promises and he's kept his word, so I think the AJ fight is going to come through sooner or later."
