JARREL MILLER ready to take ‘short money’ to finally fight Anthony Joshua
The American missed a chance to challenge AJ for the heavyweight titles in 2019 after failing a series of drug tests.
And Miller was further disgraced and confronted after another drug bust a year later FOUR YEARS out of the ring.
The undefeated heavyweight, now back in the boxing biz as a villain, isn’t giving up his pursuit of AJ.
Miller’s promoter Dmitriy Salita told The Express: “I got a call from Jarrell Miller last week, he said, ‘Dmitriy, I’ll take short money, tell Joshua I want to fight and I’ll take short money.’
“So if Jarrell can work his way back up to that level, I think it will be interesting to see him in these elite fights as well.”
Miller, 34, took his failed test before fighting Joshua, 33, to a tainted supplement and stem cell shots in his elbow.
He then received a contract with Bob Arum’s stable Top Rank, but again tested positive for a banned substance.
This time the ex-kickboxer traced it back to a SEX PILL and received a two-year suspension.
Miller enrolled for VADA testing in December 2020 and has since returned clean drug tests, which saw his license reinstated in Las Vegas.

The New Yorker won two comeback fights last year, on points against Ariel Esteban Bracamonte and a stoppage against Derek Cardenas.
And while Eddie Hearn has expressed concerns about working with Miller again, Salita is hoping the door can be opened.
He said: “As it stands now, I don’t think Matchroom is very interested in working with Jarrell, but if Jarrell stays clean, keeps testing and keeps winning, things can change.”
