Anthony Joshua to make US debut

US BOUND: Anthony Joshua

ANTHONY JOSHUA will defend his WBA Super, IBF, WBO and IBO World titles against Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller in his long-awaited U.S. debut at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, June 1.

Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn announced the news on Wednesday (Feb 13) sharing that bout between heavyweight boxing’s biggest star and Miller will be streamed by DAZN.

"June 1st I am heading to the Big Apple and I plan to embrace the culture and leave with an appetite for more," Joshua said. "I will be fighting Jarrell Miller at the legendary Madison Square Garden. It has been an honor and a blessing to fight at some of the best venues in the world at home in the U.K., not least Wembley Stadium. But the time has come to head across the Atlantic and defend my heavyweight titles in the USA.

"I am looking forward to taking on another challenge with a good boxer and a brilliant talker. It will be an exciting fight. I will leave nothing to chance and plan on dismantling Miller in style to make my mark."

Joshua and Miller will meet face to face at a news conference at Madison Square Garden to kick off the promotion and again at a second news conference on Feb. 25 in London.
