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 was already booked to fight at the National Stadium again on 13 April but a failure to secure a worthy opponent for a spring showdown beneath the arch has left AJ and Hearn needing to look elsewhere. Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury were both targets while Dillian Whyte, knocked out by Joshua in the 10th round of their tempestuous 2015 fight, was also offered another crack at British boxing's poster boy.
