Anthony Joshua to defend titles against Jarrel Miller

He's just landed one of the biggest fights in boxing against all the odds after months of negotiations by heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua to take on other - more notable fighters. The highest-profile bout was against Wladimir Klitschko in front of 90,000 fans at Wembley Stadium in April 2017.

A year into the Gypsy King's break from boxing, Joshua fought and knocked out American fighter Charles Martin in London, and was paid £8 million, there's quite a difference between the two British heavyweights' fight purses, with the importance of the fight apparently not having an influence. "He's not a name that's been developed in the market here so for me I don't think it's gonna be a great look for him because even Anthony's not that known here in America", Wilder told Talk Sport. Its dog eat dog in the ring and this dog has got a bigger bite, he'll be leaving NY empty-handed.

'I think it was of a lack of the fights we wanted in the UK.

"AJ has created an incredible "Lion's Den" atmosphere in the United Kingdom and we plan to bring that energy to NY, " said Joshua's promoter, Eddie Hearn.

The fight will be broadcast by DAZN, the streaming service that also has a huge monetary deal with middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez. I know how much he wants this fight and I know the belief that him and his team have in beating AJ. "In New York awaits a hometown fighter in Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller who has been quite vocal about his plans to spoil Joshua's stateside arrival". It's a major statement in the U.S. market. "We are delighted to be showing this massive occasion on Sky Sports Box Office and our team will provide every step of an enticing build up between these unbeaten Heavyweights. Now AJ hits NY and the global adventure begins!"

In 2018, the Guards launched missiles at an Iranian Kurdish armed opposition group in northern Iraq . The Revolutionary Guard later reported on its website that 27 were killed and 13 wounded.

Joshua, who will be making his seventh title defense, and Miller will meet face to face at a news conference at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday to kick off the promotion and again at a second news conference on February 25 in London.

Miller has also been calling out Joshua, and they got into a heated confrontation at a Matchroom Boxing/DAZN news conference in Chicago in July.

Though Joshua will be a healthy betting favorite vs. Miller, the NY native will have a solid chance to pull the upset.

'We weren't able to close the Dillian Whyte fight. I can't wait to hear Michael Buffer announce, "And the NEW...!"
