Jarrell Miller failed his second drug test, and this led to his fight with Anthony Joshua at Madison Square Garden on June 1 being called off.

The American boxer was expected to fight IBF, WBA, and WBO champion Joshua before an “adverse finding” from a sample taken on March 20.  Miller was denied a licence for the 1 June bout following the findings, and he disclosed that he intends to appeal against the decision to revoke his licence. Anthony Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, who confirmed that Jarrell Miller failed his second drug test stated that the fight was off.

“We have now received news from VADA that Jarrell Miller has now failed a second separate test for a further substance. AJ’s June 1 opponent will be announced next week – if you don’t think you can beat him clean then delete my number!” Hearn wrote on Twitter. He further disclosed that a new opponent for British IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion Joshua will be announced next week.

A statement released to Sky Sports News later on Friday evening from Jarrell Miller’s promoters, Salita Promotions, read:

“Salita Promotions and Greg Cohen Promotions are very disappointed in these findings and feel awful that fight fans will be deprived of what would have been a great fight.It’s a terrible outcome and unfortunate situation for all parties involved.”

Recall that after the American returned the first adverse sample on 20 March, his team requested that a B sample be tested. Before the report of the second adverse finding, the 30-year-old said that he had “done nothing wrong”.
