Anthony Joshua to defend titles against Jarrel Miller

  • Tyson Fury set for considerably bigger purse for Deontay Wilder rematch

Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua will make his USA debut on June 1 at Madison Square Garden in NY, when he puts his flawless record on the line against unbeaten Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller of Brooklyn in a bout that will be streamed live in the US on DAZN.

Given Fury's success in his first world title fight since his remarkable comeback, the undefeated Brit will earn a considerably larger payday for the second bout.

The 30-year-old NY based pugilist has won 23 out of his 24 professional bouts - 20 of which ended in knockouts while the last one ended in a draw.

Joshua is coming off a destructive seventh-round knockout of mandatory challenger and longtime contender Alexander Povetkin before some 80,000 at Wembley Stadium on September 22 in a fight that launched the DAZN service in the United States. The 29-year-old now holds the WBA (Super), IBP, WBO, and IBO titles and is best known for his 11th-round TKO of Wladimir Klitschko in April 2017. Miller's only blemish in a 23-0-1 record with 20 knockouts is a 2013 draw against Joey Dawejko in a four-rounder. The last time Miller weighed under 290 was on November 11, 2017, when he defeated Mariusz Wach while weighing 283.25, which is 39.25 pounds more than Joshua's career high of 254. In his bout against Dinu in November, Miller tipped the scales at 315 ¼ pounds.

Joshua and Miller haven't faced each other in the ring before, but things have already been heated between the two. "He wants to announce himself on the American stage but all he's doing is delivering me those belts by hand". "In New York awaits a hometown fighter in Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller who has been quite vocal about his plans to spoil Joshua's stateside arrival. That punk AJ is standing in the way of my dreams and on June 1 he's getting run the hell over".

'I think it was of a lack of the fights we wanted in the UK.

So with Miller as a serious opponent, Hearn's issues with Whyte, and DAZN agreeing to put up additional millions, Joshua came around to the idea of boxing in the United States.

"A new chapter for our brilliant World King Anthony Joshua as he looks to light up America for the first time against New York's brash, big hitting Jarrell Miller", said Adam Smith, Head of Sky Sports Boxing.

Huge news for him - no doubt about it. Joshua was ringside and clearly enjoyed the electric atmosphere.

"AJ has created an incredible "Lion's Den" atmosphere in the United Kingdom and we plan to bring that energy to NY", said Joshua's promoter, Eddie Hearn.

New York's Barclays Centre or Madison Square Garden is expected to host the clash, which will take place in either late April or mid-May, although the date and venue have yet to be officially confirmed.
