Jerry Forrest was originally booked to face Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller but the fight was cancelled when Miller failed a drug test for the third time in his fighting career
Forrest feels concerned and outraged by this fact because without accurate testing, he would have faced an illegally enhanced fighter in the ring. A juiced up boxer. Forrest believes a boxer knowingly taking performance enhancing drugs is equal to attempted murder.
“When someone shows you who they are, you believe them. He’s shown us who he is multiple times. It’s time for people to believe him,” Forrest told Boxing Scene. “Unfortunately, the way I look at it is, I don’t know him as a person, but, I am going to assume he’s a bad guy. Any time you’re willing to cheat and use PEDs in a sport where you’re physically hitting someone, to me, that’s attempted murder in my eyes, because we can kill anyone with one punch.”
