Jarrell Miller has slammed Deontay Wilder for labelling him a doper and declared himself better than Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua.
The American’s reputation is in ruins after he tested positive for several banned substances last year in the build up to his fight with Joshua at Madison Square Garden.
That fight was cancelled, but Miller escaped a lengthy ban because he did not hold a boxing licence at the time he failed three VADA tests, with performance-enhancing substances EPO and GW1516 found in his system.

Despite the evidence against him, Miller now insists the positive tests were caused by a steam cell shot he received for a shoulder injury.
Miller intends to make his comeback once the coronavirus pandemic is over and the heavyweight took aim at Wilder.
Former WBC champion Wilder was a vocal critic of Miller and the fighter blasted his rival, while declaring himself the best heavyweight in the world.
‘There are certain athletes in the boxing game that use my name,’ he told BonusCodeBets.co.uk.
‘If you can’t say it to my face, I know you’re a punk. Ninety-nine per cent of the people you see in the boxing world would never look my way and say something to my face, that’s the kind of characters they are.
‘A lot of fighters that were talking junk. Andre Ward, Billy Joe Saunders, Tony Bellew, Deontay Wilder and (Eddie) Hearn.
‘A lot of fighters were running their mouth who didn’t know sh*t about this situation.
‘Deontay was running his mouth and his brother got popped for something. Like I said before, I wouldn’t jump to conclusions and you got to do your homework.
‘When Dillian Whyte got in trouble I said, don’t jump to conclusions you got to do your homework.
‘Ninety-nine per cent of fighters are talking straight bullsh*t and they have no structure in what they’re saying.
‘I am number two in the world, the only reason I am not number one is because I don’t have no belt. I know I am a better fighter than all of these guys.
‘I’m better than AJ (Anthony Joshua), I’m better than Tyson, I’m better than Deontay.
‘I only call myself number two because I don’t have that belt. I’m going to be world champ.’
