Anthony Joshua has hit out on Jarrel Miller after “The Big Baby” failed three drug tests.
Joshua’s opponent for June 1 will most likely be announced on Wednesday this week. AJ is searching for a new boxer to fight for his American debut at Madison Square Garden on June 1 after Jarrel Miller failed a drugs test.
“The Big Baby”, who was due to fight with Joshua for IBF, WBA and WBO titles, was refused a licence by VADA after testing positive for GW1516. The Substance that increases aerobic power and endurance.
Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn expects to make several offers in the coming days with Luis Ortiz, Adam Kownacki and Michael Hunter leading the race.
But before that, Joshua finally breaks silence on Miller.
The Brit said: "June 1 will still go ahead, my New York debut at Madison Square Garden. I didn't want to talk too much about Jarrell Miller, because it’s not in my character to knock a man while he’s down. However there are a lot of things that he had said in the build-up and the press conferences, so I wanted to crack him in his jaw. I know that when you’re in a position, you’ve got to lead by example and that’s not the right thing to do. The lesson to learn is that karma comes around in mysterious ways, what goes around will come back around. He’s taken the lessons and the blessings out of his own hands, so sometimes, be respectful. I know it’s a fight, but be respectful, be appreciative, and lead by example. What he has done is not lead by example. Cheats across all sports will get found out, hustlers and hard workers will always rise to the top.
