Jarrell Miller has finally come clean following reports of a THIRD and FOURTH banned substance appearing in his system.

Reports surfaced on Friday that a second adverse finding had been relayed to promoter Eddie Hearn.

The Matchroom boss took to social media to confirm it after the New York State Athletic Commission had taken away Miller’s license.

“We have now received news from VADA that Jarrell Miller has now failed a second separate test for a further substance,” Hearn stated as he continues the search for a replacement opponent for Anthony Joshua.

“AJ’s June 1 opponent will be announced next week. If you don’t think you can beat him clean then delete my number!”

After being caught out AGAIN, Miller decided to refrain from further denial and then deleted a previous post.

Reports state Miller also had EPO in his body, which needs to be injected to be effective.

Miller had said: “I’m absolutely devastated upon hearing the news my boxing license has been revoked in NY State.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. 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!”

Upon receiving a flood of criticism and calls for a lifetime ban, Miller has now moved to take ownership of one of the worst casing of PED’s on record.

“I messed up. There were a lot of ways to handle the situation, I handled it wrong. I’m paying a price for it,” said the ‘Big Baby’.

“I messed up a big opportunity. And I’m hurting on the inside. My heart is bleeding right now. I hurt my family, my friends, my team, my supporters.

“But, I’m owning up to it. I’m going to deal with it and I’m going to correct it. I’m going to come back better and I’m humbled by the experience,” he added.

BAN

A certain two-year suspension should be on the cards for Miller if any sort of justice is to be served.

At 30 years of age, Miller faces losing twenty four of his best career months, having been on the verge of his biggest fight.

A six million dollar paycheck has now passed Miller by, as will a big chunk of his boxing life.
