Jarrell Miller Suspended For 24 Months By NSAC
Jarrell Miller won’t be competing inside the boxing ring until 2022.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission has ruled that Miller will serve a 24-month suspension. The penalty for Miller is due to his latest drug testing fiasco. Miller can have his sanction reduced by six months but the earliest he can return is January 2022.
Here is what Mike Detmer, Nevada attorney general, had to say on Miller’s suspension during a hearing on December 2 (via BoxingScene.com).
“The terms of this agreement include a 24-month suspension, subject to modification. The respondent will pay for and complete a random drug testing program approved by Nevada. He must also pay for and complete substance abuse program, which is no less than five hours and places an emphasis on psychological and physiological negative effects of PED use.”
Miller was supposed to challenge Anthony Joshua for the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO Heavyweight Titles in 2019. Miller ended up failing a VADA test and was denied his license in New York as the fight was scheduled to take place inside Madison Square Garden.
Miller was suspended as a result of the failed test but once that sanction was up, he was set to face Jerry Forrest on July 9, 2020. Miller failed a pre-fight drug test for GW501516. He was put on a temporary suspension until the NSAC issued the 24-month sanction.
