Joshua Considering Miller At MSG Over Wembley
It seems that Anthony Joshua loved the atmosphere of Madison Square Garden so much, that he is considering a big shift in 2019.
Joshua, who sat ringside for Canelo Alvarez’ third round TKO win over Rocky Fielding at Madison Square Garden, may be considering an American debut this spring.
Per Keith Idec of Boxing Scene, sources are claiming Joshua may face Jarrell Miller at MSG this spring, instead of his April 13th date at Wembley Stadium.
In a story first reported by World Boxing News, Joshua-Miller could be a serious possibility, which may derail the heavyweight division heading into the new year, as the winner of Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora’s December 22nd fight at the O2 in London, would have been the one to face Joshua at Wembley.
If the fight were to take place, Joshua would move his fight date to June, to avoid fighting the same month as fellow DAZN fighter Canelo Alvarez, who returns on May 4th.
One option allegedly on the table is Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn having Amir Khan and Kell Brook fill the April 13th spot at Wembley, opening the door for Joshua to make his United States debut.
Sources have confirmed, though, that Hearn is seriously considering staging an Amir Khan-Kell Brook bout April 13 at Wembley Stadium instead of Joshua’s next fight.
Complicating that is an offer to Khan from Top Rank’s Bob Arum, that guarantees the Bolton born boxer $5 million to face Terence Crawford at Madison Square Garden in March, which Hearn may be able to better if Wembley was on the table.
