Anthony Joshua’s US debut in doubt as opponent Jarell Miller fails drug test


The US debut of British-Nigerian boxer Anthony Joshua seems uncertain after his opponent Jarell Miller failed drug test.

The news was shared on Twitter by boxing promoter Eddie Hearn.

Joshua was billed to fight Jarell Miller in New York’s Madison Square Garden on June 1, but with the report by Hearn, the fight seem an impossibility.

Hearn tweeted: “We have been informed by VADA that there has been an adverse finding in Jarrell Miller’s sample collected on March 20th, 2019.

“We are working with all relevant parties and will update with more details soon. AJ’s preparation continues for June 1st at MSG.”

Miller tested positive for banned muscle growth substance GW1516, which was added to the World Anti-Doping Agency’s banned list in 2009. A second testing will be carried out soon.
