Iconic! Anthony Joshua Set To Fight Jarrell Miller At NYC’s Madison Square Garden – Eddie Hearn

Nigeria’s heavyweight champion of the world, Anthony Joshua, will get the chance to create an “iconic moment” in New York as a deal to fight Jarrell Miller draws closer, says promoter Eddie Hearn.The unified world champion was due to fight at Wembley on 13 April but the date will almost certainly be scrapped. Instead, Hearn says facing New Yorker Miller at Madison Square Garden on 1 or 8 June is “likely”. “I really believe it will be a major moment for Joshua’s career,” Hearn said. “Legacy is about creating ionic moments and Joshua in New York is an iconic moment. He is going to go there and completely turn the US boxing scene on its head as they are going to see a real star.” Any bout at Madison Square Garden will see Joshua follow in the footsteps of fellow heavyweights Muhammad Ali and Lennox Lewis in headlining at the prestigious arena.Photo Credit: Getty
