Anthony Joshua’s much-anticipated next bout has been confirmed by his promoter Eddie Hearn.

There were rumours that a fight against one of three would go ahead – either Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte and Deontay Wilder.

But negotiations failed and Jarrell Miller will be taking on the Watford-born fighter instead.

AJ will face the ‘Big Baby’ at Madison Square Garden in New York on June 1.

“June 1st, I am heading to ‘The Big Apple’ and I plan to embrace the culture and leave with an appetite for more,” said Joshua.

“I will be fighting Jarrell Miller at the legendary Madison Square Garden.

“It has been an honour and a blessing to fight at some of the best venues in the world at home in the UK, not least Wembley Stadium, but the time has come to head across the Atlantic and defend my heavyweight titles in the USA.

“I am looking forward to taking on another challenge with a good boxer and a brilliant talker.

“It will be an exciting fight, I will leave nothing to chance, and plan on dismantling Miller in style to make my mark.”

Big Baby has called out Joshua, saying he has made a big mistake coming to the United States.

“AJ is making a huge mistake coming over here to fight me in my own backyard,” said Miller.

“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. He’ll be leaving New York empty-handed.

“This is the fight that I’ve been chasing all my life. On June 1, I’m going to achieve the thing I was born to do and win the heavyweight championship of the world.

“That punk AJ is standing in the way of my dreams and on June 1 he’s getting run the hell over.”
