Anthony Joshua's Team Make 'Formal Offer' To Jarrell Miller For Fight In New York

It appears Anthony Joshua vs. Jarrell Miller is officially in the works.

Team Joshua have reportedly made a 'formal offer' to Jarrell Miller for a heavyweight championship fight on June 1st in New York at the iconic Madison Square Garden.

That's according to Ring Magazine writer Mike Coppinger who says: "Formal offer made to Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller for heavyweight championship fight vs. Anthony Joshua on June 1 at MSG. Sides sit several million dollars apart. The fight would be streamed by DAZN stateside and serve as Joshua's U.S. debut."

Interesting. Of course, Wembley Stadium is booked for April 13th.

Dillian Whyte, whose rattled off nine straight wins since his defeat to Anthony Joshua, was set for a rematch.

But it seems like 'AJ's camp have swerved the 30-year-old in favour of a fight in the States.

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

Though a match-up across the pond is edging closer with Team Joshua in talks with Miller.

Miller, 30, is a New York native and is unbeaten in 24 professional fights. He's under Eddie Hearn's Matchroom USA banner so an in-house bout shouldn't be too difficult to make, right?!

Last month, he talked up a bout vs. Joshua at MSG.

"Madison Square Garden is the Mecca of boxing. I don't care what anybody says," he said.

"If AJ wants to come to America, this is the place to do it, and I'm the man to punch him in the face."

Meanwhile, a rematch between WBC kingpin Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury is also reportedly in discussion.

Does Joshua need to fight in America?
