I do not shove needles up my arse: Anthony Joshua snaps back at Jarrell Miller
Jarrell Miller who served a doping ban says Joshua getting worse as drug testing net closes in.
Anthony Joshua has broken down Jarrell Miller’s accusations he is a drugs cheat as nonsense after the American claimed it was ‘impossible’ the champion has never taken performance-enhancing drugs.
Miller, who was hit with a doping ban in his kickboxing career, pointed to the muscle Joshua packed on after turning professional as a sure sign of doping.
Joshua’s immediate response to Miller’s comments was to laugh off the accusation, saying: ‘That’s a compliment because, if I was, I would not even be able to fit in this shirt.’
Miller first levelled doping allegations at Joshua at the New York press conference a week ago, but the three-belt champion insisted his opponent’s argument was flawed.
‘I have been training since I was 18, so that’s eleven years,’ Joshua continued. ‘He’s looking at my change between 2012 and 2013, but why doesn’t he look at the eleven years?
Around the Olympics I was around 104kgs then when I turned pro I was around 107kgs, so that’s around half a stone.
‘Now I am 115kgs, so that’s 11kgs in 11 years, it averages out. It’s just my dedication. ‘Look on my social media, it’s my dedication. I wouldn’t recommend it to everyone because it’s expensive, especially the food I drink and the lifestyle and training.’
Joshua makes his US debut at Madison Square Garden in June and is handing home advantage to Miller who was born and raised in Brooklyn.
