After failing yet another drug test for performance enhancing substances, Big Baby Miller’s fight scheduled for July 9th against Jerry Forrest has officially been cancelled.
Last year, in a women’s fight that was extremely anticipated between multi-division champ Amanda Serrano and Brooklyn’s own Heather “Heat” Hardy, and after Serrano convincingly defeated her opponent, a urine sample came up positive for a type of PED.
That is not the type of personality and character exhbitited in the fight game and I would challenge any promoter to turn down working with anyone of this nature, not just a Jerrell Miller.
Boxing royalty the likes of Andre Ward has called for a lifetime ban from the sport, while his old promoter Eddie Hearn proclaimed Miller’s career over after the latest spell.
If for nothing else in his depressingly wasted career, Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller gave us the fight of 2019 (in which he didn’t participate) and what will go down as one of boxings biggest upsets in history between Andy Ruiz and Anthony Joshua.
