World heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua will make his United States debut against Jarrell Miller at Madison Square Garden on June 1.

Joshua will put his WBO, WBA and IBF belts on the line at the iconic New York venue in what will be his first bout outside Great Britain.

 

The 29-year-old was due to fight at Wembley on April 13 after stopping Alexander Povetkin at the London venue last September, but a potential all-British rematch with Dillian Whyte failed to materialize.

Miller stormed his way onto the stage to confront Joshua in New York at a promotional event for the Englishman's showdown with Povetkin last July and the Brooklyn native will get a chance to let his fists do the talking in the same city.
