Drug Cheats Won't Go Unpunished, Says Anthony Joshua Raps Jarrell Miller

Anthony Joshua has hit out at drugs cheat Jarrell Miller by insisting he doesn’t deserve to be in the same ring as him.

Joshua and Miller were set to go toe to toe at Madison Square Garden on June 1 but the American failed three drugs test, testing positive for GW1516, HGH and EPO.

The IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion is still set to make his Stateside debut, however, but the new opponent is yet to be announced.

Joshua broke his silence on the Miller situation by claiming hard workers will always rise to the top after, ironically, the American had previously claimed the Brit was on steroids.

‘Sometimes be respectful, I know it’s a fight, but be respectful, be appreciative and lead by example,’ Joshua said. ‘And what he has done is not leading by example.

‘Cheats across all boards will get found out, and hustlers and hard workers will always rise to the top.

‘Good luck to the kid Jarrell Miller, whatever he does with his life, I’m not going to knock him when he’s down, but he doesn’t deserve to be in the ring with me or any other heavyweight right now.

‘I don’t know what the future holds, that’s not up to me that’s up to the governing bodies, but they’ll make the right decision and the right call in the situation.’

Eddie Hearn confirmed that Joshua’s new opponent would be announced this week, with Luis Ortiz, Michael Hunter, Adam Kownacki, Manuel Charr and Kubrat Pulev all on the five-man shortlist.

Joshua added: ‘We’re currently looking for alternative options. I’ve got another four and a bit weeks of sparring. Whoever the fighter may be, I’m going to keep my chin down, hands up and I’m ready to slug it out with whoever.

‘When Eddie [Hearn] called me and broke the news to me, these things happen in sport, that’s why I don’t get up in my feelings with what’s going on, but what I did say is, whoever it is, I’m down to ride.

‘So he’s doing the negotiations, having the conversations, and hopefully within the next 48 hours, 72 hours we’ll have an update for you guys.’

Israel Adesanya Beats Jared Cannonier To Retain UFC Middleweight Title

Published

on

Israel Adesanya defeated Jarred Cannonier via unanimous decision (49-46, 49-46, 50-45) to retain the UFC middleweight championship.

Adesanya fought against middleweight contender Jared Cannonier at UFC 276 at the T-mobile Arena, Las Vegas Sunday morning.

Since making his debut in 2018, ‘The Last Stylebender’ has looked better each time he’s stepped into the Octagon and is still undefeated in the middleweight. He first captured the interim title in the Fight of The Year winner against Kelvin Gastelum in 2019.

‘Izzy’ then defeated Robert Whittaker and unified the titles that same year.

He has successfully defended his title four times since then. On an otherwise perfect record for Adesanya (22-1), his only loss was during his unsuccessful step up to light heavyweight, losing to then-champion Jan Blachowicz.

On Sunday, the Nigerian-born New Zealander successfully defended his middleweight title for the fifth time.

While Adesanya defeated Robert Whittaker in February for the second time to retain his middleweight strap, Cannonier knocked out Derek Brunson in the second round in February to become the weight’s No.1contender.

Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modric, has revealed what Paris Saint-Germain defender, Sergio Ramos did at Los Blancos.

Modric and Ramos were former teammates at Real Madrid for over six years.

However, Ramos left Real Madrid to join PSG last summer.

But Modric has now revealed that the Spanish centre-back helped him to adapt at Real Madrid, adding that he encouraged him and believed in his potential.

Speaking to Sportske, the Croatian international explained what it was like to lose Ramos on and off the pitch.

The former Tottenham Hotspur star said, “All of the players exits with people that you spend years with, in a very successful era, are painful. For everyone. After nine years, ‘Sergi’ is not there. From the first day he was close to me, he helped me adapt to Real Madrid, he encouraged me, he believed in my potential…”

“We became great friends, our families got together, we spent the summers together. We still speak about those days, at least over messages. I miss going out with him, but that is the way things are in football.”

The Portugal captain has made 183 appearances in the Champions League, notching 140 goals and providing 42 assists.
