- Anthony Joshua has been scheduled to fight American boxer Jarrell Miller in June
- But the fight may no longer hold as Jarrell Miller has been tested positive to banned substance
- The boxing governing body are now expected to come out with their stand on this development
Anthony Joshua's fight against Jarrell Miller in June 2019 is now in serious doubt after the American tested positive to a banned substance ahead of the big clash.
Joshua is due to put his IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight belts on the line against the 30-year-old American, but the fight may now be cancelled.
This is because Jarell Miller was tested positive to bad substance ahead of the fight according to the latest report on UK Mirror.
Miller is now facing the possibility of being banned for many years from boxing due to this latest development.
"We have been informed by VADA that there has been an adverse finding in Jarrell Miller’s sample collected on March 20.
"We are working with all relevant parties and will update with more details soon. AJ's preparation continues for June 1 at MSG,'' Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn said on social media.
Should Jarell Miller be banned from boxing, then Joshua will be expected to get another opponent to fight with.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Anthony Joshua's world heavyweight championship clash with Jarrell Miller on June 1 took a new twist as both fighters were involved in verbal exchanges during a press briefing.
A few days ago, both boxers came face-to-face with each other in the New York Stock Exchange as Miller pushed Joshua to provoke the champion but he remained calm.
In a build up to the match recently, the British and American pugilists used foul languages against each other in a heated exchange.
