"I messed up. I made a bad call", Miller said in an Instagram video.

Joshua is still slated to headline the Madison Square Garden card on June 1 as he makes his first appearance in the USA, though now we must all play the waiting game as we see who steps in to take the place of Miller. The New York State Athletic Commission refused to issue Miller a boxing license, which cost him a shot at unified titleholder Anthony Joshua on June 1 at Madison Square Garden. But he promises, "I'll own up to it, I'm going to deal with it, I'm going to correct it and I'm going to come back better... it's time to get right and do right".

"I want to thank all of my supporters who have stood by me since day one and especially during this extremely hard time", Miller wrote on Instagram.

"There were a lot of ways to handle a situation, and I handled it wrongly and now I'm paying the price for it".

The American heavyweight's Voluntary Anti-Doping Association test on March 20 showed "adverse findings" after traces of Endurobol - an endurance-boosting and fat-burning substance - were discovered.

"I missed out on a big opportunity and I'm hurting inside".

Miller recently tested positive for human growth hormone (HGH) which is on the World Anti-Doping Agency banned list.

Hearn confirmed: "We have now received news from VADA that Jarrell Miller has now failed a second separate test for a further substance".

"It's the fight that sets me apart from everybody else".

Anthony Joshua will receive confirmation of his world title challenger in the "early part of next week" with an America-based opponent viewed as the "ideal" choice, says Eddie Hearn.

The Madison Square Garden fight was set to be Joshua's United States debut.

Whyte, Miller and Fury have all been caught out for failed drugs tests, while AJ hasn't been found committing any serious wrongdoings in that area.

Hunter joins a five-man shortlist which includes the likes of Luis Ortiz, Adam Kownacki, Mahmoud (Manuel) Charr and Agit Kabayel who are further down due to a lack of USA ties.

"My team and I stand for integrity, decency and honesty and together we will stand to fight this with everything we have!"
