Michael Hunter breaks his silence about potentially fighting Anthony Joshua

LONDON (AP) - World heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua's debut fight in the United States won't now be against Jarrell Miller, according to Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn, after a second alleged doping violation by the American boxer.

After the first positive test result, Miller claimed he had not knowingly taken a banned substance.

Hearn had already started the search for alternative opponents from the point of VADA's first update, and he wrote on social media on Friday: 'We have now received news from VADA that Jarrell Miller has now failed a second separate test for a further substance.

Miller has now not only lost out on a massive payday and the chance to shock the world by becoming the unified heavyweight champion of the world, but he's now facing a lengthy suspension that will keep him away from the sport - most likely for one year.

She pointed out Mexican fighter Saul "Canelo" Alvarez recently signed a $365m (£280m) multi-fight deal with streaming broadcaster DAZN, despite a six-month ban for failing two drug tests.

Miller's initial failed test was reported earlier this week, with the banned substance GW1516 coming up from a test taken on March 20.

"This is your boy "Big Baby" Miller here".

Also, there will be face painting, karaoke, jumpers, and a visit from the Easter Bunny himself! A child greets the Easter Bunny. After five happy children found one of the victor eggs, they then received either a huge sports or art basket.

Hearn revealed Miller had "failed a second separate test for a further substance", even as he disclosed that a new opponent will be announced next week to face Joshua, who now holds the British IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight belts.

Miller was guaranteed to bank $5 million in purse money and more from UK PPV revenue in his fight against Joshua.

In response to Sportsmail, Fina apologised and insisted her comments were not an official statement from Miller's camp. I messed up; I made a bad call. A lot of ways to handle the situation, I handled it wrongly and I'm paying the price for it.

"My heart is bleeding right now". I love you guys and I appreciate you guys out there, and as fighters we go through a lot and I don't want to make it a bad name for ourselves.

Subsequently suspended by the New York State Athletic Commission, Miller's imminent date with Joshua is seemingly thwarted with a ton of potential candidates stating their case to replace the volatile Brooklynite.

'AJ's June 1 opponent will be announced next week.

"This was a voluntarily test that I was very happy to do and these results came just one week after another voluntarily test that I had taken which was completely clean".
