Michael Hunter breaks his silence about potentially fighting Anthony Joshua

Undefeated heavyweight contender Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller addresses his fans and supporters in Belize and overseas with these words in a short Facebook video posted this evening after news broke earlier today of a second failed drug test in as many days.

Miller vehemently denied taking a banned substance after the results became public, protesting his innocence on social media.

Hearn said: "We have now received news from VADA that Jarrell Miller has now failed a second separate test for a further substance".

After news emerged of the second failed drugs test from Miller, Fina began responding to fans on Twitter in what fast became an expletive-laden rant.

It came to light Friday that Miller has tested dirty in a total of three random drug tests with three different banned substances found in his system (GW1516 twice, HGH, and EPO).

On Tuesday, results from a urine sample Miller provided to VADA on March 20 also tested positive for the banned substance GW1516.

Out of all the aforementioned names, it seems that Hunter remains the most likely to take over for Miller and he had quite a bit to say to the media platform Love Sport Radio about it. 'I messed up. I messed up, I made a bad call, ' Miller said in an Instagram video.

A new opponent for Briton Anthony Joshua's June 1 heavyweight fight in NY will be announced next week, promoter Eddie Hearn says.

"I am absolutely devastated upon hearing the news my boxing license has been revoked in NY State and I will be vigorously appealing this decision. There's a lot of ways to handle a situation; I handled it wrongly and I'm paying a price for it, I'll miss a big opportunity". "A lot can be said right now, I'm going to get straight to the point", Miller said.

Having made a career-high $500,000 in November, Miller will now miss out on a payday of almost $5 million for his fight with Joshua. I hurt my family, my friends, my team, my supporters.

"I want every single belt, I want to be the undisputed champion, and I want the day to come when there can only be one king and that man will be Deontay Wilder".

"There are a handful of guys who should all be competing with each other and can make great fights happen". The California State Athletic Commission suspended Miller for nine months and fined him $2,500.

Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn has confirmed a new opponent for the WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight champion will be announced next week.

Getting dumped from the fight with Joshua will cost Miller a career-high purse of $4.875 million.
