Miller breaks silence after failing drug test

JARRELL MILLER claims he “never knowingly” took the banned substance which is set to force him out of a June 1 clash with Anthony Joshua.

The American heavyweight is set to appeal the New York State Athletic Commissions decision to deny his application for a licence to heavyweight clash at Madison Square Garden.

Miller failed a drugs test after a sample given to the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association on March 20 contained traces of Endurbol, a substance which has endurance boosting and fat-burning qualities.

The Brooklyn brawler will need his B sample to come back negative for the NYSAC to reconsider his licence application.

However, it is highly likely that sample will give the same result as his A sample.
“I have never knowingly taken any banned substance and when I found out the news last night I was totally shocked.”

But that has not stopped Miller protesting his innocence.

He said: “I am absolutely devastated upon hearing the news my boxing licence has been revoked in New York State and I will be vigorously appealing this decision.

“I have never knowingly taken any banned substance and when I found out the news last night I was totally shocked.

“My team and I stand for integrity, decency and honesty and together we will stand to fight this with everything we have.

“This was a voluntarily test that I was very happy to do and these results came just one week after another voluntarily test that I had taken which was completely clean.
“I refuse to just lie down and let my dream be taken away from me when I know in my heart that I’ve done nothing wrong. 15 years of hard work. I’m warrior.

“I don’t need a banned substance. Remember don’t believe everything you hear and see.
“The facts will prevail and I shall be vindicated. I don’t have anything to hide and the truth will make itself known.”

Joshua’s team are pressing ahead with finding a new opponent for June 1 as the WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion is intent on fighting on that date.
