'I messed up': Joshua opponent's surprise backflip


//

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

Joshua, the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO world champion, had been scheduled to fight American Jarrell Miller but the New York State Athletic Commission refused to sanction the fight, saying that Miller had committed a violation relating to use of a prohibited substance.

Miller initially denied taking a banned substance but suddenly back-flipped and confessed.

"I have NEVER knowingly taken any banned substance and when I found out the news last night I was totally shocked," Miller said on Instagram.

"Remember don't believe everything you hear and see. The facts will prevail and I shall be vindicated," Miller said.

"I don't have anything to hide and the truth will make itself known."

Then on Saturday morning (AEST) he took to Instagram and admitted his wrongdoing.

"I'm going to get straight to the point. I messed up. I messed up. I made a bad call," Miller said.

"A lot of ways to handle this situation, I handled it wrongly and I'm paying the price for it.

"I missed out on a big opportunity and I'm hurting inside. 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, correct it and I'm going to do better and I'm humbled by the experience.

"Fighters we go through a lot and I don't want to make it get a bad name for ourselves. It's time to do right. "

ESPN reported that Miller had tested positive for the banned substance GW1516, which boosts endurance and helps athletes burn fat, citing three sources familiar with the matter.

ESPN reported on Friday that Miller had also failed a second test for another substance.

Reuters could not confirm either test and the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association, which reportedly administered the second test, could not be reached for immediate comment.
