Jarrell Miller hit Eddie Hearn, criticizing the promoter for “breaking the rules” and also described him as a “scapegoat” after his doping violation.
Last year, the American was supposed to fight Anthony Joshua for his IBF, WBO and WBA titles at Madison Square Garden on June 1 until he failed a series of tests from the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) ) end of March. He therefore served a six-month sentence.
Miller tested positive for human growth hormone, EPO and GW1516, which ended his hopes of defying the belts – with Andy Ruiz Jnr taking his place at Madison Square Garden.

The treatment of the situation by Hearn, the promoter of Joshua, always ranks with “Big Baby” who accuses the head of Matchroom Promotions of seeking to protect himself and his mark before the fighter.
“You have people who have a larger audience than me and who will put their personal stories first. And that’s what Eddie did with Matchroom. He was under DAZN fire for that, so I was their scapegoat, “he told BonusCodeBets.co.uk.
“Any big business or enterprise always finds a scapegoat, so why not blame it on the big American blow?” Make him look at the bad guy and meanwhile he [Eddie] can run for the clear.
“I kept things cordial with Eddie because of DAZN. People from DAZN sent me a message saying “keep your head up” and “stay positive”, “we would love to see you again”. And then for Eddie Hearn to say the opposite, these are mixed messages. What Eddie put in front of the camera, he never said in front.
“I always try to be someone I admire, but what I learned is: if you understand where the bad guy comes from, that’s when you understand life. Because no one at the top of their game is really the right guy, they may look like the model citizen, but there’s always something going on.
Joshua and Miller had to fight on June 1, 2019 before the latter’s six-month drug ban
“Where I come from in 80% of the cases, the bad guy always wins, because when you do everything by the book, you leave your hands tied – you have to be that person who sees outside the box.
“If the multimillionaires abide by all the rules, they wouldn’t be where they are – so with some of these promoters like Eddie Hearn, they say these crazy and outrageous things, they don’t abide by the rules all the time. That’s a fact.’
Miller has been out of the ring since November 2018, when he eliminated Bogdan Dinu.
However, despite his inactivity, the 31-year-old is confident in his abilities – believing that he is the best heavyweight in the world.
“I’m number two in the world, the only reason I’m not number one is because I don’t have a belt, I know I’m a better fighter than all these guys,” he continued. .
“I’m better than AJ, I’m better than Tyson, I’m better than Deontay [Wilder], I’m only number two because I don’t have this belt. I’m going to be world champion. ‘
