Anthony Joshua's next opponent Jarrell Miller has returned an "adverse finding" in a drug-testing sample, says Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn.

American Miller, 30, is due to fight Briton Joshua, 29, at Madison Square Garden in New York on 1 June.

Joshua is scheduled to defend his IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles against the undefeated Miller, who has never fought for a world title.


Hearn said Joshua's "preparations continue" for his US debut.

Hearn said he had been informed by the the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (Vada) about the finding from a sample collected on 20 March. Vada operates within boxing and mixed martial arts

You couldn't make this up.

2nd time he's failed as well. Problem is that Joshua still has to take this fight in the US to raise his profile, although questions will be raised win/lose/draw.

I still find it incredulous that Wilder is fighting the #4 or #5 in the division, and Dillian White (Ranked #2) cannot get a shot at the title. It's farcical in boxing, and none of them want to lose their golden goose, as wilder without a belt is worthless and Hayman knows that.
