Joshua set for US debut against Miller

Dillian Whyte wants to fight Deontay Wilder

According to sources with the fight, that will be stream on DAZN in the United States is not yet finalized.

Hearn echoed Miller's statement during an appearance on BBC Radio 5, in which he revealed it's very likely Joshua will face the NY native next.

Joshua (22-0, 21 KOs), 29, the 2012 Olympic super heavyweight gold medalist, will be facing the Brooklyn, New York-born Miller in his hometown as he makes his seventh title defense.

Despite being the unified heavyweight champion of the world, Joshua has yet to fight in the USA. In his last fight, Miller knocked out then-undefeated Bogdan Dinu in the fourth round on November 17.

It was widely believed that Joshua was going to take on British rival Dillian Whyte (25-1, 18 KO's) in a rematch on April 13 at Wembley Stadium. Joshua is also coming off a knockout win himself, though, a much more significant one. He had never shown much interest in leaving his home country - where he generates tens of millions of dollars for every fight.

Vadim Kornilov, a manager for World of Boxing, told Sky Sports: "Povetkin was always interested in the fight". Joshua was ringside and clearly enjoyed the electric atmosphere.

"I want to create a weekend for British fight fans on a card stacked with British names to create that mad atmosphere we got with the likes of Ricky Hatton fighting in America", he explained.

DAZN will broadcast the fight, with Hearn, Joshua and Matchroom already signed to the streaming giant. But with the fight taking place in the U.K., it was a late afternoon start in the United States.

Everyone has been eagerly anticipating Joshua's next fight after five months out of action.

It will be a busy period for boxing in NY with the prospect of the World Boxing Council heavyweight title rematch between champion Deontay Wilder and lineal champion Tyson Fury taking place there in April or May, in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center - though that is still to be confirmed - and Amir Khan set to face WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford MSG on April 20.
