Heavyweight Jarrell Miller fails drug test

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller was supposed to have the biggest fight of his career in June against Anthony Joshua at Madison Square Garden in New York City. However, now that fight is in jeopardy.

Miller failed a drug test, according to ESPN’s Dan Rafael. He tested positive for GW1516, which is a banned substance.

Joshua’s American debut may not be against Miller now. “Big Baby” found out about the test results on Tuesday.

Miller submitted a urine sample for the drug test by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association on March 20th. Previously, he accused the British fighter of using PEDs during their press tour, which followed the announcement of their mega fight.

The 30-year-old Brooklyn, New York native — who will be 31 in July — has a 23-0-1 record in his boxing career. He has 20 knockouts in his 24 bouts.

The mega fight — if it does happen now — was for four titles. This included the International Boxing Federation World Heavyweight Title, International Boxing Organization World Heavyweight Title, World Boxing Association Super World Heavyweight Title, and World Boxing Organisation World Heavyweight Title.

Miller has not competed since he knocked out Bogdan Dinu on Nov. 17, 2018 at the Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane, Kansas. With the knockout, he won the Interim NABA Heavyweight title.

He has won 18 straight bouts. In his past two bouts, he has gone a combined six rounds.

Besides knocking out Dinu, he also knocked out Tomasz Adamek.
