Jarrell Miller Returns ‘Adverse Findings’ In Drugs Test

Anthony Joshua’s next opponent, Jarrell Miller, has returned an “adverse finding” in a drug-testing sample, according to promoter, Eddie Hearn.

The American boxer is due to fight Joshua in a heavyweight title unification bout on June 1 in Madison Square Garden, having never fought for a world title before.

The random drugs test, carried out by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association in March, showed that Miller allegedly tested positive for banned substance GW1516.

During the press tour for the announcement of their fight, Miller (23-0-1, 20 KOs) accused Joshua of using PEDs.

Miller’s promoter, Dmitriy Salita, told ESPN that they are continuing their preparations for the fight.

“We are in the process of obtaining further information about Vada’s finding and will have more to say soon on this developing situation. In the meantime, Jarrell continues to train for his 1 June fight against Anthony Joshua.”

Michael Hunter, Joe Joyce and Joseph Parker, who lost to Joshua on points last year, have all said that they would be willing to step in to fight the 29-year-old.
