Joshua Responds To Miller Failing Three Drug Tests With Subtle Jab On Social Media

Anthony Joshua has seemingly responded to Jarrell Miller's positive drug test on social media with a thinly-veiled jab.

Miller was due to fight the unified heavyweight world champion on June 1 in New York at Madison Square Garden.

However, he's been removed from the main-event slot after failing not one but THREE (!!) drug tests.

He pissed hot for GW1516, a metabolic modulator also known as endurobol, HGH and EPO.

Joshua will now defend his world titles against someone else and the heavyweight king appeared to throw shade at Miller on social media following his adverse findings.

The undefeated-Brit posted a picture of himself flexing with the words: "No oxygen for negativity."

Promoter Eddie Hearn has also revealed what Joshua said via text message after he broke the news to him.

"And I've got to say, without kissing his a***, AJ was incredible," the Matchroom boss said.

"He was the first person I called. There was a few people we had to call; AJ, Rob, Freddie, DAZN, Sky.

"And I just went 'Mate, I've got some terrible news, Miller's failed a drugs test'.

"He didn't even sound that surprised, to be honest with you. He just went 'OK, who's next?'

"I said 'who do you want?' and he said 'absolutely anyone'.

"And I text him this morning to stay focused and he told me he's just done six miles on the road. He is just an absolute pro."
