Big Baby Tests Positive for Banned Substance

Belizean/American heavyweight contender Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller is scheduled to face Anthony Joshua in a title bout on June first, but the news tonight is that the well-known boxer has reportedly tested positive for a banned substance.  The results are those of a random urine test that Miller submitted to on March twentieth by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association.  This means that his match with Joshua at the famed Madison Square Garden is in jeopardy since he is likely to face a one-year suspension.  Of note is that it is not the first time that “Big Baby” Miller has failed a drug test.  While it is a first in his career as a professional boxer, in 2014, as a kick boxer, he tested positive and was suspended for nine months.  Ironically, Miller, whose record is stellar, spent a lot of time during his press tour alleging that Joshua, a British champion who holds three heavyweight titles, was using performance-enhancing drugs.  Having set a date and a venue for Joshua’s U.S. debut, it is likely that a replacement fighter will selected. So for all those Belizeans waiting anxiously for the big match, don’t hold your breath.
