Joshua-Miller Set For June At MSG

Joshua-Miller Set For June At MSG

Hearn confirmed another fight with Whyte later in the spring or early summer would have to take place away from Wembley, but if Joshua opted to fight Miller in New York, Whyte could take his place at the top of the bill of the April date against another opponent.

Miller has told Joshua of his plans to take his mother, Yeta Odusanya, out on a date after their fight in June at the Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Anthony Joshua is set to fight Jarrell Miller in June after Dillian Whyte confirmed negotiations over an all-British clash are "dead".

"It is not happening at the minute, so we move on", he told Sky Sports.

"The good thing is I am in a position where I have got options". And when he fights a real gritty, hungry, mean person like me, it's going to be a whole different story, man.

"He wants to come to America and I think it's going to be great for U.S. boxing, especially for American boxing".

"Negotiations in business are very hard".

There's lots of ins and outs in negotiations, the fans don't really see the ins and outs of that. "We move on", he said. I'll hopefully fight Dominic Breazeale, Alexandar Povetkin or Luis Ortiz at the 02 on April 20. "Let's see what Eddie can deliver in the next couple of days".

"Asked who he would prefer to fight next, Whyte was clear in his own preference".

"Even though I am number one for nearly two years, he is number three and the mandatory, I don't understand!"

While there might be disappointment on Whyte's part that a rematch with the 29-year-old Brit has fallen through, he has already revealed when he will fight next and who he wants his next opponent to be.

"He [Whyte] likes to gamble".

Who you guys rooting for? Jarrell Miller, Dominic Brezeale, even younger fighters coming through. "If it is not going to be Joshua it will be April 20 and we will sort that all out next week".

Joshua is the undefeated holder of the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight belts while American Deontay Wilder holds the WBC title.

The British heavyweight champion of the world is set to make his long-awaited debut in the United States in June against Miller after Dillian Whyte failed to agree on a fee.
