Anthony Joshua’s next opponent Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller has tested positive for a banned substance just six weeks prior to their scheduled bout, according to a report on BBC Sport.
The fight was scheduled to take place at Madison Square Garden in New York on 1st June.
Matchroom Boxing head Eddie Hearn revealed that Miller returned an “adverse finding” in a drug test sample.

The failed test has now put Miller’s bout with IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion Joshua in doubt.
Should the fight be called off, Joshua is still eager to fight at the scheduled date against a different opponent, with Dillian Whyte and Joseph Parker both claiming that they are ready to step in.
