PROMOTER Matchroom is pursuing a new opponent for Anthony Joshua’s IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight title defence on June 1 after Jarrell Miller was denied a licence over an “adverse finding” in a drug-testing sample.

The Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) had informed both camps of the results that came from a test on March 20, in which there was an adverse finding for GW1516, a metabolic modulator also known as cardarine and endurobol.

Miller retains the right to request a further sample and to reapply for a licence for the fight at Madison Square Garden, when Joshua makes his debut in the United States.
