Miller failed three drug tests — Sources

Heavyweight contender Jarrell “ Big Baby ” Miller , who was already denied a boxing licence earlier this week in New York for a world title fight because of a positive test for a banned substance , has failed a second and third test for other banned substances , sources with knowledge of the test results told ESPN on Friday.

The results from a blood sample collected from Miller by the Voluntary Anti – Doping Association on March 31 came to light on Friday and were positive for human growth hormone, which is on the World Anti – Doping Agency banned list .

A urine sample also collected on March 31 returned positive results for two additional banned substances later on Friday: EPO , which increases the oxygen – carrying capacity of blood , which would help a fighter from showing fatigue late in a fight , and GW1516 , which an athlete might use to assist in fat loss or as an endurance booster.

“Salita Promotions and Greg Cohen Promotions are very disappointed in these findings and feel awful fans will be deprived of what would have been a great fight , ” Dmitriy Salita and Greg Cohen , Miller ’ s co – promoters, told ESPN in a joint statement following the revelation of the positive test .

“ It’ s a terrible outcome and unfortunate situation for all parties involved . ”

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

On Wednesday, the New York State Athletic Commission denied Miller a boxing licence , all but ending his hope of being able to challenge unified heavyweight world titlist Anthony Joshua on June 1 on DAZN at Madison Square Garden in New York .

On Friday night , Miller posted a video to social media in which he essentially admitted to performance – enhancing drug use and apologised .

“ This is your boy ‘ Big Baby ’ Miller here, ” an emotional Miller said .

“A lot can be said right now .

I gonna get straight to the point . I messed up .

I messed up .

I made a bad call .

A lot of ways to handle a situation, I handled it wrongly and I’ m paying the price for it .

Missed out on is a big opportunity , and I’ m hurtin ’ on the inside.

My heart is bleeding right now .

I hurt my family , my friends, my team , my supporters .

But I’ m going to own up to it .

I’ m going to deal with it , I’ m going to correct it , and I’ m going to come back better .

“I’ m humbled by the experience .

I understand how to handle certain things.

I’ m gonna leave it at that.

I love you guys and I appreciate you guys out there , and as fighters we go through a lot and I don’ t want to make it a bad name for ourselves .

It’ s time to do right , and get right . So I thank you guys. ”

Miller (23 – 0 – 1 , 20 KOs ), 30, of Brooklyn, New York , has asked for the B sample from the March 20 test to be tested , which is scheduled to be on April 24 but it remains to be seen if it still will be given Miller ’ s admission .
