LONDON – Jarrell Miller could miss out on a shot at Anthony Joshua’s world heavyweight titles after the American produced an “adverse finding” in a drug-testing sample.
Miller, who is undefeated in his 24 professional fights, was due to take on the Briton at Madison Square Garden for the WBA, IBF and WBO titles on June 1.
However, both camps have confirmed the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) had informed them that Miller had returned the results from a test on March 20.
“We have been informed by VADA that there has been an adverse finding in Jarrell Miller’s sample collected on March 20th, 2019,” Eddie Hearn, Joshua’s promoter, tweeted.
“We are working with all relevant parties and will update with more details soon. AJ’s preparation continues for June 1st at MSG.”
