The rap comes just days after a feisty exchange at a press conference in New York to announce the fight.
Joshua normally keeps a calm demeanour but Miller appeared to get under his skin with a string of insults, leading to the British fighter promising knock the American ‘the f*** out’.
Miller called Joshua an ‘Uncle Tom’, a racially charged term for black people who give up or hide their ethnic traits and practices in order to be accepted into the mainstream, before accusing him of using testosterone to gain weight.
‘This motherf****** has TUE test exemptions for testosterone and all kinds of s***,’ Miller said. ‘I have been doing my research, who comes out of the Olympics at 220lbs and goes to 240lbs in a year?’
Miller fired insults at Joshua and claimed he used a TUE to gain weight when turning pro
Joshua addresses Miller’s accusations during his interview with Calloway. When asked if the claims were proven, Joshua replied that he gained the weight through hard work and pointed out that he is tested roughly three times a month.
‘I was skinny, I was a kid,’ said Joshua. ‘It was ten, 11 years of dedication, eating right, sleeping right, watching the right things.
‘I’m on two anti-doping drug agencies.
‘Since 2012, before the Olympics, I enrolled in something called Whereabouts, where everyday of the year, every year, I have to let me know where I’m gonna be.
‘I have to give them an hour in the day, so they can randomly turn up and drug test me at any time throughout the whole year.
‘I get tested three times a month, you’re talking 36 times a year.
‘We go under WADA testing as well for the fights, which means I’m tested under two doping agencies.’
