Drug-cheat Jarrell Miller weighs in heavier than Thor ahead of comeback fight after four years out | The Sun

JARRELL MILLER has weighed in a massive 341lbs for his comeback fight after a drug ban.

The Brooklyn heavyweight – known as 'Big Baby' – has piled on nearly two stone since he last fought in 2018.


Miller will return to the ring against Ariel Esteban Bracamonte in Argentina this week after almost four years out.

And he came in on the scales as 154kgs or in British terms more than 24 stone.

He weighed 36lbs more than his opponent in Buenos Aires this week.

And Miller was also heavier than the 335lbs which Hafthor 'Thor' Bjornsson came in at for his bout with Eddie Hall.

Another separate drug bust a year later has kept the former kickboxer sidelined and serving a backdated two-year suspension.

But the Nevada State Athletic Commission has voted to re-licence Miller as of June 17, so long as he continues to return clean tests.

Miller, 33, blamed his failed test before fighting Joshua on a tainted supplement and stem cell shots in his elbow.

The heavyweight would in 2020 then get a contract with Bob Arum's Top Rank stable but again tested positive for a banned substance.

This time Miller put it down to a SEX PILL.

His drugs ban ended on June 16, meaning he is now free to box again.

Miller was due to be part of a Triller fight club event on Saturday night, but now will box in Argentina instead.

The WBA announced a two-event festival for this week in Buenos Aires to tackle drugs.
