Jarrell Miller is in ‘advanced negotiations’ over a multi-fight deal with boxing promotion Top Rank and could be a possible opponent for Tyson Fury.
The unbeaten heavyweight was due to challenge Anthony Joshua on June 1 at MSG, but failed multiple VADA tests in April for a variety of different banned substances.

Miller was never officially banned from boxing, due to a loophole, as his licence with the New York State Athletic Commission had expired, meaning that they did not have the jurisdiction to punish him.

Speaking last week, Miller’s co-promoter Greg Cohen said he wants to get ‘Big Baby’ back in the ring next month.
“The plan is to get him a license and return to the ring hopefully in October,” Cohen told BoxingScene.
“Look, we could’ve played [loose] with the rules, take ‘Big Baby’ to another country where the suspension wouldn’t be recognised and have kept him active.

“But we want to show that we – and especially he – takes this very seriously and fully intend to go through the proper channels to resume his boxing career.”
“Jarrell has kept in shape, ready to return. If we tell him he’s got a fight in October, he will expect another one to come in December.”
