Anthony Joshua to earn £25 million from Jarrell Miller fight

  • Dillian Whyte has switched attention to an April fight at The O2

The Ring Magazine's Mike Coppinger was first to report the story. However, an official announcement could come as soon as next week.

Joshua, who is undefeated 22 pro fights, was tipped to rematch Dillian Whyte at Wembley, but the two fighters could not agree on purses and drug testing.

He has never boxed outside of his home country of the United Kingdom, where he is a superstar and has regularly drawn sold-out crowds to stadiums, including a British-record 90,000 at Wembley Stadium in London for his 11th-round knockout of Wladimir Klitschko in 2017 fight.

"Legacy is about creating iconic moments and Joshua in NY is an iconic moment".

The 29-year-old is expected to face off against Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller next, after brushing aside Russian Alexander Povetkin in his last bout back in September. 'April 20 looks like it could be Dillian Whyte at The O2 Arena, obviously if they don't fight, ' said Hearn. Whyte even told the media last month that the offer he had received was "ridiculous".

Hearn echoed Miller's statement during an appearance on BBC Radio 5, in which he revealed it's very likely Joshua will face the NY native next.

Whyte proclaimed his clash with Joshua was dead last week, forcing Hearn to focus his energy on talks with Miller. After that, it was rumored in boxing circles that Joshua could eventually make his US debut.

However, Wilder's controversial draw with Tyson Fury put paid to those plans and paved the way for a lucrative rematch between the pair.

If Joshua and Wilder are both triumphant in their fights, a fall showdown between two of the most explosive heavyweights in recent memory, could be inevitable.

And when streaming live on Instagram alongside a long-term friend, Joshua was asked who he is fighting next, to which he laughed off suggestions he is dodging his rivals.
