BOXING promoter Eddie Hearn has attacked drug crook Jarrell Miller, claiming the heavyweight owes him ‘money’.
Miller will fight his first fight in three and a half years on a trill show next month.
The 33-year-old was scheduled to fight Anthony Joshua in his hometown of New York in 2019.
But Miller famously failed three drug tests ahead of the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association fight — blasting the mega-money fight in the process.
Another separate drug bust a year later has the former kickboxer sidelined and serving a retroactive two-year ban.
However, the Nevada State Athletic Commission voted to re-license Miller beginning June 17 as long as he continues to return clean tests.
And while he admits he “likes” Miller, Hearn believes the boxer shouldn’t be allowed in the ring.
The Matchroom boss told talkSPORT: “Some fighters I really think made mistakes, others just cheated.
“You have to understand that when he failed the drug tests for the Anthony Joshua fight, he injected him with things to beat Anthony Joshua. That’s outrageous, that’s criminal.
“Ultimately I don’t think he gets to fight again but I’m not the governing bodies, I’m not the commissions.”

“I like Jarrell Miller. I think he’s a nice guy, but the fact of the matter is that he’s been repeatedly cheated on to try and gain an unfair advantage in a fight against another athlete.
“And he really owes me money. And he will pay me.”
Miller, 33, made his failed test before fighting Joshua, 32, to a tainted supplement and stem cell shots in his elbow.
The heavyweight would then land a contract with Bob Arum’s stable Top Rank in 2020 but tested positive again for a banned substance.
This time Miller traced it back to a SEX PILL and is still serving a ban – but now has a return date.
