As the deal to fight Jarrell Miller draws closer, promoter Eddie Hearn has said Anthony Joshua will get the chance to create an “iconic moment” in New York .
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 told newsmen.
“He is going there and will completely turn the US boxing scene on its head as they are going to see a real star.”
