Anthony Joshua set to fight Jarrell Miller, the fight will go down on June 1st in New York

World heavy weight champion and British-Nigerian boxer, Anthony Joshua, 29, will make his American debut by defending his WBA, WBO, IBF, and IBO heavyweight titles when he takes on New York’s Jarrell Miller at Madison Square Garden on June 1.

In a video posted to social media, Joshua whose last fight was against Russia’s Alexander Povetkin confirmed the bout with Jarrell Miller and explained why an agreement couldn’t be reached first for a showdown with US heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.

He said; ‘June 1 I’ll be travelling to MSG. New York City, the Big Apple,’ Joshua said in a video posted to social media. ‘I’m there to take a bite out of that and I’ll be competing against Jarrell Miller. Wembley is so close to my heart, it’s a great spot, a great location. I’ve fought in small halls, I’ve fought in arenas. And it’s been a humbling and a blessing to fight in those stadiums.

‘But now it’s time for a change. The current state of the division was the undisputed championship of the world. Myself and [Deontay] Wilder are the current active champions of the world. We were looking to get that fight on April 13 but things happened, boxing politics, I’m sure you guys are aware.

So we had to branch out and look for other options. Miller came up. It’s an exciting fight, he’s an undefeated heavyweight.’ Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua, OBE is a British professional boxer. He is currently a unified world heavyweight champion, holding three of the four major championships in boxing: the IBF title since 2016, the WBA title since 2017, and the WBO title since 2018.

Do you think Anthony Joshua is up to defend his crown come June?
