Jarrell Miller made a passionate statement on Wednesday evening, sometime after his world caved in the night previously.

‘Big Baby’ has been accused of cheating by the harshest of his critics after testing positive for a banned substance.

The VADA finding happened during camp for the biggest bout of his career against world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

Miller now faces a suspension and the loss of what would have been the most lucrative purse of his career on June 1st.

Addressing his fans, Miller protested his innocence over the Endurobol (GW1516) flag.

“I want to thank all of my supporters who have stood by me since day one. Especially during this extremely difficult time,” said Miller.

“I have not been tuned in to social media and any other media outlets to focus, channel all of my energies into working hard with no distractions.

“I’m absolutely devastated upon hearing the news my boxing license has been revoked in NY State. 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. Together we will stand to fight this with everything we have!

I want to thank all of my supporters who have stood by me since day one and especially during this extremely difficult time. I have not been tuned in to social media and any other media outlets to focus and channel all of my energies into working hard with no distractions. I am absolutely devastated upon hearing the news my boxing license has been revoked in NY State and I will be vigorously appealing this decision.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 & 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 vindicate. I don’t have anything to hide and the truth will make itself known.

REPLACEMENT

The American will no longer be in the opposite corner to Joshua at Madison Square Garden, that fact has been made clear.

Furthermore, a replacement is currently being sought by promoter Eddie Hearn and his team.

As WBN predicted on Wednesday, the likes of Luis Ortiz, Adam Kownacki and Michael Hunter were the top targets

It’s expected one of those three will be etched on a new poster soon.
