Jarrell Miller Responds To Anthony Joshua's Offer For June World Title Fight

Jarrell Miller's confirmed he's received an offer from Team Anthony Joshua for a June world title fight, and he's responded to the deal.

Anthony Joshua appears to be swerving the Wembley Stadium date for April 13th by taking a fight in the States.

Jarrell Miller, who's under Eddie Hearn's Matchroom USA banner, has been identified as Joshua's opponent for his American debut.

And according to reports, a 'formal offer' has been made.

The offer on the table wasn't a bad one, either. Well, that's according to the man himself who has revealed the ins-and-outs of the deal.

"There was an offer made earlier today, as a matter of fact," the heavyweight contender said.

"It's just based on whether Dillian Whyte doesn't want the fight. They're [Matchroom Boxing and Whyte] are in the heat of negotiations still.

"They said to me that if they can make a deal with me, they're going to bypass Dillian Whyte and fight me in June. Dillian Whyte might present me with the opportunity, because he wants a certain number."

"It wasn't a bad offer," he added.

"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 isn't really in a position to demand more money considering his status in the heavyweight division.

To put it bluntly, he's not a big name in the U.K or even in the States for that matter.

But he remains the front runner to face Joshua next.
