DISGRACED Jarrell Miller says he only failed his latest drug test because of a SEX PILL as he fights to clear his name.
The American boxer, 32, failed multiple drug tests in the run-up to his proposed fight with Anthony Joshua at Madison Square Garden in 2019.
Miller was banned from fighting, with Andy Ruiz Jr taking his place and stunning the planet by beating the British star.
After serving his six-month suspension, Miller was given a chance to redeem himself.
But earlier this year, he returned ANOTHER positive drug test – his fourth in just a 12-month span.
Many boxing figureheads have demanded Miller be slapped with a lifetime ban after the Nevada State Athletic Commission temporarily suspended his boxing licence.
Most-recently, Miller returned a positive result for an illegal endurance booster called GW501516.
He also tested positive for the substance – along with EPO and Human Growth Hormone (HGH) – ahead of his Joshua fight last year.
Now it's been suggested the 'widely available' Black Ant male sexual stimulant could be to blame.
The sex pill contains GW501516, with Miller admitted to taking it 30 days before his test.
But Miller is adamant he didn't realise what the pill contained and never put two-and-two together after being left baffled as to how he was failing his drug tests.
Miller also added his positive tests for HGH and EPO in 2019 came from a 'stem cell shot' in his elbow.
Now the American has vowed to clear his name, telling Sportsmail: "Everybody wants to point the finger but not everybody has the right information
"The levels I failed for in this case right now were so minute.
"And with the EPO, you need to use that for months at a time if you want to get any muscle benefits not just one shot.
"Anyone who knows me knows I'm not that person and we are going to prove everybody wrong.
"I have spent thousands of dollars of my own money trying to find out what's happened.
"But there's ignorance on a lot of people's part.
"Everybody listens to whoever has the loudest voice at the time and who has the microphone."
Miller continued: "When Eddie Hearn, or Andre Ward or Timothy Bradley are saying what they're saying everybody listens.
"But when I get the microphone back in my hand and get two or three wins back under my belt, I'm going to shut them up.
"The proof is in the pudding. It's right there. I've been truthful from the beginning to the end.
"The truth will set you free and I believe in that. If you go by the book and by the law, this case is innocent."
Miller went on to blame a lack of education regarding drugs for his repeated failed tests – and vowed to bone up on the banned substance list.
He continued: "I was getting my supplements tested but I should have been more careful.
"When I failed for GW501516 I was the one who called for my third test, and when my third test results came back that was when EPO had shown up and I was like 'No way, I need to figure this out'…
"And then I was told it was in the stem cell shot.
"I had taken stem cell shots before and never had a problem but this one was a more potent blend.
"I do my due diligence now and I'm trying to educate myself on these things and I'm working on something behind closed doors to protect other fighters from this happening to them.
"There's a lack of education around drug testing, that's the problem."
