Anthony Joshua to fight Jarrell Miller in United States on June 1

Tyson Fury set for considerably bigger purse for Deontay Wilder rematch

Heavyweight boxing's biggest star Anthony Joshua OBE will defend his WBA Super, IBF, WBO and IBO World titles against Jarrell Miller in his long-awaited USA debut at the iconic Madison Square Garden in NY on Saturday, June 1, live on DAZN in the US and Sky Sports Box Office in the UK.

The match marks Joshua's first fight outside of the United Kingdom and will be his seventh title defense.

"I plan to embrace the culture and leave with an appetite for more, " said Joshua, whose 22 professional fights have all taken place in Britain.

'But the opportunity came for June 1 in America at Madison Square Garden to have his debut. "He's not a name that's been developed in the market here so for me I don't think it's gonna be a great look for him because even Anthony's not that known here in America", Wilder told Talk Sport. It will be an exciting fight.

Although unbeaten, Miller has yet to face an opponent the pedigree of Joshua. He has won all of those bouts, 21 by knockout.

Miller is 23-0-1 and most recently beat Bogdan Dinu by KO in November. He is 6-feet-4 and in his last bout, a one-sided fourth-round knockout of Bogdan Dinu on November 17 in Mulvane, Kansas, Miller weighed 315.25 pounds.

Miller has also been calling out Joshua, and they got into a heated confrontation at a Matchroom Boxing/DAZN news conference in Chicago in July.

"AJ is making a huge mistake coming over here to fight me in my own backyard", Miller said. "He wants to announce himself on the American stage but all he's doing is delivering me those belts by hand". It's dog eat dog in the ring and this dog has got a bigger bite.

Now the score will be settled on June 1 2019! "That punk AJ is standing in the way of my dreams and on June 1 he's getting run the hell over".

The 29-year-old last fought in September, also at Wembley, when securing one of his finest victories by stopping Russia's Alexander Povetkin in seven rounds. New Zealand's Joseph Parker is the only fighter to take Joshua the distance.

The fight will be aired live on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK and streaming service DAZN in the United States.

Promoter Eddie Hearn turned to Miller after he was unable to reach a deal for a rematch between Joshua and Dillian Whyte.

Huge news for him - no doubt about it.

Miller stormed his way onto the stage to confront Joshua in NY at a promotional event for the Englishman's showdown with Povetkin last July and the Brooklyn native will get a chance to let his fists do the talking in the same city.
