Anthony Joshua snaps back at Jarrell Miller after Dope Accusation


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.’
