Anthony Joshua vs Jarrell Miller officially off new opponent to be named next week

Anthony Joshua’s new opponent will be announced next week. Joshua is searching for a new boxer to for his American debut at Madison Square Garden on June 1 after Jarell 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 increases aerobic power and endurance. It means Joshua will now defiantly have to find a new opponent.  Miller is still waiting on the result of his B Sample and could reapply for his licence but the situation looks unlikely to be resolved. 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. Miller denies cheating but will now miss out on a 5million dollar payday. This is not the first time that Miller has failed a drug test. Back in 2014, when Miller was kickboxing with GLORY, he tested positive and was suspended for nine months.
