Anthony Joshua To Have Debut Fight Outside England

Unified heavyweight world titleholder Anthony Joshua will have his first fight outside England with top contender Jarrell ‘ Big Baby’ Miller on June 1 at Madison Square Garden , New York.

Their promoters are reported to have come to terms if multiple sources claiming to have a good knowledge of the specifics are to be believed.

The fight , which will stream on DAZN in the United States , is not yet finalized.

But there are no material issues holding things up and the paperwork is expected to be signed at any time, a source said, with an official announcement of the bout coming as soon as Monday.

Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing, which has a long- term deal with DAZN, and Miller’ s co – promoters , Greg Cohen and Dmitry Salita , have been working for the past
few weeks on the fight that will mark the United States debut of Joshua.

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.
