Joshua likely to scrap fight with Whyte

Joshua likely to scrap fight with Whyte

Joshua was expected to fight at Wembley Stadium on April 13, but he and promoter Eddie Hearn have failed to lure an adequate opponent to the ring.

Joshua's last outing saw him stop Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium on September 22.

Speaking to boxing channel IFL TV, according to Hearn the Wembley date is "not 100 per cent" off, but scrapping it is very "very likely". It's so obvious. Joshua doesn't want to fight me.

"I just think at some point he needs to make that U.S. debut and in the landscape at the moment, this would be an interesting moment".

"The Jarrell Miller fight is an option for June".

We ain't run out of a thing to say.' And it got to a point where I was like, 'I need her with me to operate. Kylie announced she had given birth to Stormi on February 4 past year , during the Super Bowl game.


BBC Sport understands Miller is the more likely candidate to face the IBF, WBA and WBO world champion next as he would provide a gateway into a new market by giving Joshua the opportunity for his first bout in the US.

However, with WBC champion Wilder set to take on the self-proclaimed "Gypsy King" in a rematch following their controversial split decision draw, Joshua looks likely to take his first fight in America.

The 29-year-old has the venue booked out again for April and has been linked with a fight against rivals Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte in recent months. We are discussing all possibilities and will let everyone know what the future holds in the coming days, ' he told Sportsmail.

After months of conjecture, it appears that AJ will finally be confirming very soon that he will be making his U.S. debut against Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller.

The Telegraph said Miller was understood to have been offered $6.2 million to fight Joshua in NY on June 1. "I spoke to AJ last night and said, 'mate, you wanted to carry on the conversation!" Although the fight will represent a considerable step up in competition for Miller, the former kick boxer has remained active of late and has stopped 11 of 12 opponents going back to 2015. Miller has got no power, but does have a good work rate. The delivery guy realises it's Anthony Joshua and he starts talking to him and records the call and puts it straight out on YouTube, which is weird.
