That setback, following failed overtures to lure Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury into a blockbuster clash with AJ, has left Hearn bereft of top-level options for the unified world champion. It is now expected Joshua will make his US debut in early June, fighting Miller at Madison Square Garden. Anthony Joshua is reportedly set to secure a lucrative pay package in a potential bout with Jarrell Miller. Joshua, who holds the IBF, WBA (Super) and WBO Championships, earned around £20m for his bout with Alexander Povetkin in September last year, but that could be trumped with his new pay package.
"But it's not just DAZN," Hearn said, before adding: "It's Sky Sports Box Office, it's Madison Square Garden, it's international TV.

But when Hearn was asked whether that meant facing Miller was effectively Joshua taking a pay cut, the promoter could barely stifle his laughter. "He would prefer to still be fighting at Wembley on April 13 but we've got to a stage where [New York] now looks like the right thing to do, if we can get the deal over the line in the next few days, week then I'm very, very excited.
