WHAT A DOPE

DRUGS cheat Jarrell Miller has been handed a two-year boxing ban following another failed drugs test.

But the American can reduce the ban to 18 months if he completes a treatment course.

Miller, 32, failed multiple drug tests in the run-up to his proposed fight with Anthony Joshua at Madison Square Garden in 2019.

Miller was banned from fighting, with Andy Ruiz Jr taking his place and stunning the planet by beating the British star.

After serving his six-month suspension, Miller was given a chance to redeem himself.

But earlier this year, he returned ANOTHER positive drug test - his fourth in just a 12-month span.

Most-recently, Miller returned a positive result for an illegal endurance booster called GW501516.

News of Miller's ban was revealed by talkSPORT'S Michael Benson, who wrote: "Jarrell Miller has today been banned from boxing for two years by the Nevada Commission following his latest positive drugs test.

"Ban applies to all US states and can be reduced to 18 months if he completes a treatment course."
