Anthony Joshua’s next opponent Jarrell Miller

Anthony Joshua’s @anthony_joshua next opponent Jarrell Miller @bigbabymiller , seen here shoving the British-Nigerian heavyweight, has returned an “adverse finding” in a drug-testing sample, says Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn.
The 30-year-old Miller is due to fight Joshua at Madison Square Garden in New York on 1 June.
The 29-year-old Joshua is scheduled to defend his IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles against the undefeated American, who has never fought for a world title.
Hearn said he had been informed by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (Vada) about the finding from a sample collected on 20 March. Vada operates within boxing and mixed martial arts.
“We are working with all relevant parties and will update with more details soon,” he said on Twitter.
Miller’s promoter, Dmitriy Salita, said: “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.”
Joshua’s manager Freddie Cunningham said they “will 100% be looking at replacement options” if Miller is not allowed to fight.
