Anthony Joshua has wished Jarrell Miller "good luck" following his failed test to banned substance - but added he "doesn't deserve to be in the ring with me or any other heavyweight right now".

The American was due to fight Joshua in his first fight in the United States, for the world heavyweight championship.

But the unbeaten Miller was denied a licence after an "adverse finding" from a sample taken on 20 March.

"Karma works in various ways," said Joshua.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Joshua added: "What goes around will come back around and I feel like he has taken fate and his own blessings out of his own hands.

"I know it's a fight, but be respectful, be appreciative, and lead by example. What he has done is not leading by example.

"Cheats will get found out, and hustlers and hard workers will always rise to the top."

After a second adverse finding was reported on Friday, 30-year-old Miller admitted he had "messed up".

"Whoever that fighter may be, I'm going to keep my chin down and hands up," Joshua said.
