Miller is currently serving a suspension for testing positive for banned substances.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

Jarrell Miller may currently be on the sidelines as he serves a drug suspension for PEDS, but tells RingTV that he’s excited at the prospect at getting back into the ring after watching Adam Kownacki and Chris Arreola slug it out over the weekend.

“Of course I’m a fighter, so watching that gave me the itch. I know that we have some business to take care of but we’ll be back October,” Miller added before enumerating how much longer he has left in his WBA issued suspension, which concludes on September 19. “I think it’s 47 days and counting. I can’t wait.”

Speaking on some other heavyweight action, Miller would continue by saying that Anthony Joshua got exposed by Andy Ruiz Jr. just as he said would happen once Joshua faced someone who would really bring the fight to him. And then Miller expressed some dissatisfaction with his current promoter, Dmitriy Salita, whom he is looking to part ways with.

“I think Dmitriy, he’s not for the fighter, he’s about himself with his money in his pockets. That’s not where I want to be,” said Miller, who is co-promoted by Greg Cohen Promotions. “I love the sport of boxing so if I make a mistake in this game, I want to own up to it and fix where I went wrong, and that’s what I’m doing.

“I think I want to be with a promoter that’s not only about the fight, but ethically is just a good person.”

I have to say, Miller questioning someone’s ethics here is pretty freakin’ rich considering his current predicament.
