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

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.

Jarrell Miller’s opponent this week CONFIRMED as he returns after drugs ban

Miller will return to the ring this week as part of an ironically-named ‘KO Drugs’ festival after his ban expired.

He was due to face former world champion Anthony Joshua in 2019 at Madison Square Garden before Andy Ruiz Jr stepped in.

Miller has recently been in the UK to spar with Tyson Fury ahead of his win over Dillian Whyte.

Miller infamously failed three Voluntary Anti-Doping Association pre-fight drug tests – blowing the mega-money bout.

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.
