Leaked Audio Reveals The Details Of Anthony Joshua's Next Fight

It looks like Anthony Joshua is heading to the States for his next fight.

A leaked phone call has emerged online and Anthony Joshua has suggested a bout across the pond is on the cards.

Wembley Stadium is booked for April 13th but it appears Team 'AJ' are set to swerve that date in favour of a trip to America.

"I think we're going to have to go to the States," Joshua says in the leaked audio.

"The only thing I can think is if they're trying to make me stop training and then two weeks later say, yeah we want to fight, and so I'm two weeks out of preparation.

"Other than that, in my mind I'm going to the states," he added.

Joshua, the WBA (Super), IBF and WBO heavyweight world champion, has fought all his professional bouts on British soil, including four stadium shows across Cardiff's Principality Stadium and Wembley Stadium.

But his American debut is edging closer with a 'formal offer' made to Jarrell Miller for a heavyweight bout in New York on June 1st.

And Jarrell Miller confirmed he received a deal from Eddie Hearn, who's also his promoter.

"It wasn't a bad offer," he said. "My main thing is getting in the ring and knocking his backside out, and showing I'm the man.

"I'm going to give them a hard time on certain things, but my ultimate goal is being the champion. I'm thinking about legacy first, and the money will come."

Miller, 30, is unbeaten in 24 fights and boasts a 23-0-1 professional record including victories over Gerald Washington and Tomasz Adamek, among others.

Joshua's former foe Dillian Whyte is also in the running but a rematch appears unlikely, despite his nine-fight win streak.
