American heavyweight Jarrell Miler has failled another PED drug test, but what else is new.
“Big Baby” got busted with PED for the third time in the last six years. The first time such a thing happened was back in 2014 when he was still a kickboxer.
The most notorious case, of course, was the one from 2019 when Miller was scheduled to fight unified world champion, Anthony Joshua, in New York. Miller was supposed to cash in on a $7 million check, but he failed three separate tests and received a six-month ban.
Now, more than a year fast forward, Miller tested positive for GW501516, also known as Cardarine.
It was the last straw for many fans and former boxers who are demanding a lifetime ban for the heavyweight.
Britain’s Carl Frampton, Anthony Crolla and Tony Bellew had this to say:
If this disgraceful human being doesn't get banned for life, the sport that I love is an absolute joke! pic.twitter.com/2GT1EGhC2u

Everyone knows my stance on this! These are PED’s not a vicks nasal spray! BAN FOR LIFE! This is the only way to really stop this imo! If he gets banned for life then believe me you will see the amount of failed tests in boxing drop by 90% Take a stand Boxing Boards! #BANFORLIFE https://t.co/S9Cxzj6urw

Anthony Crolla on Jarrell Miller: "PEDs in a sport like boxing are dangerous… I think there should be a prison sentence for it. He was a walking pharmacy. One thing's bad enough, but the amount of gear in him, and to do it again… You've got to ban him for life." [@talkSPORT]
