Joshua looking for new opponent for debut fight in US

Joshua looking for new opponent for debut fight in US

Anthony Joshua's boxing debut in the USA has taken an interesting turn after Jarrell Miller was recently denied a licence from the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC).

As BoxingScene.com reported earlier today, a second failed drug test has come to light with Miller testing positive for human growth hormone (HGH).

Milled tested positive for the banned substance GW1516, also known as cardarine and endurobol.

According to ESPN, Miller's third test, also taken on March 31, came up positive for EPO - which is increases the oxygen-carrying capacity of blood, and he was once again positive for GW1516.

Miller's participation was initially jeopardized on Tuesday when the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) informed both camps of an "adverse finding" in a drug-testing sample, leading to Miller being denied a license for the fight.

Joshua is still slated to headline the Madison Square Garden card on June 1 as he makes his first appearance in the USA, though now we must all play the waiting game as we see who steps in to take the place of Miller.

After being denied a licence to fight by the New York State Athletic Commission, the American boxer said he had never knowingly taken a banned substance, adding that he meant to appeal against the decision to revoke his licence.

He scored a great goal [against Man Utd] and I think he will stay and be a success. The strength coming from the stands made me shiver.

"This is your boy "Big Baby" Miller here", Miller said.

Miller, on Thursday, denied knowingly taking performance-enhancing drugs in a statement released on his promoter's Instagram page. I love you guys and I appreciate you guys out there, and as fighters we go through a lot and I don't want to make it a bad name for ourselves. I'ma get straight to the point, I messed up.

"I missed out on a big opportunity and I'm hurting inside". I hurt my family, my friends, my team, my supporters.

The 30-year-old has been made a top priority for Miller's replacement because boxing promoter Eddie Hearn's main criteria was to replace Miller with another American.

"And when he text me the other day "I swear I've never taken anything, this is bullshit", I was going to reply". In addition, Miller will lose out on at least another $3 million because his deal with DAZN called for two $1.5 million comeback fights in the event of a loss to Joshua.
