Joshua to make US debut against Miller in New York

Anthony Joshua The World Boxing Council postponed the purse bid for Deontay Wilder’s rematch with Tyson Fury until yesterday

It has just dawned on us that Anthony Joshua's highly anticipated bout against Jarrell Miller in NY is on the same day as the Champions League final in Madrid and to be honest, we can't handle the excitement of it all.

The match marks Joshua's first fight outside of the United Kingdom and will be his seventh title defense.

The 29-year-old Joshua is 6-6 and generally fights in the mid-240s, so Miller will likely have more than a 60-pound weight advantage. The 29-year-old now holds the WBA (Super), IBP, WBO, and IBO titles and is best known for his 11th-round TKO of Wladimir Klitschko in April 2017. He holds impressive victories over Gerald Washington and Mariusz Wach.

Miller, meanwhile, also is undefeated after winning 23 of his 24 fights. In his last fight, Miller knocked out then-undefeated Bogdan Dinu in the fourth round on November 17. "He wants to announce himself on the American stage but all he's doing is delivering me those belts by hand". Its dog eat dog in the ring and this dog has got a bigger bite, he'll be leaving NY empty-handed. "That punk AJ is standing in the way of my dreams and on June 1 he's getting run the hell over".

The fight will be broadcast by DAZN, the streaming service that also has a huge monetary deal with middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez.

"Jarrell is still an unknown fighter here in America".

China, Russia pose challenge to US space capabilities: Pentagon
China is building technologies that will soon threaten USA dominance in space, warned the Pentagon's lead intelligence agency. It adds that China 'possibly already has a limited capability to employ laser systems against satellite sensors'.

"A new chapter for our brilliant World King Anthony Joshua as he looks to light up America for the first time against New York's brash, big hitting Jarrell Miller", said Adam Smith, Head of Sky Sports Boxing.

With the two biggest opponents for Joshua occupied with one another, the focus shifted to a rematch with fellow countryman Dillian Whyte, who stopped Derek Chisora in December, to seemingly punch his ticket to avenge his 2015 knockout loss to Joshua.

Huge news for him - no doubt about it.

"It's been an eventful few months, but I'm delighted to finally announce that Anthony Joshua will make his American debut at the iconic Madison Square Garden on June 1", Hearn said.

Miller stormed his way onto the stage to confront Joshua in NY at a promotional event for the Englishman's showdown with Povetkin last July and the Brooklyn native will get a chance to let his fists do the talking in the same city. There will be a significant public demand for the winners to fight each other for the undisputed title, especially if Joshua and Wilder emerge with their titles intact.
