Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has announced he considers Jarrell Miller a perfect opponent should Anthony Joshua decide to fight in the US.
Joshua is the current IBF, IBO, and WBA champion, and boasts a record of 19 wins with 19 KO’s and is promoted by Hearn’s company Matchroom Sport.
Over the past few weeks, there has been speculation over a potential unification bout between Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua.
Although, Hearn recently revealed a heavyweight title fight between the man from Hackney and Brooklyn’s Miller is just as likely.
Before Miller gets his shot at the heavyweight champion, he must first get past the 6ft7", 260 pound Polish boxer Mariusz Wach on November 11 at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Colosseum in New York in a 10-round showdown.
Wach is perhaps the toughest opponent Miller has agreed to fight in his eight-year pro career.
Eddie Hearn has commented on Miller potentially being Joshua’s opponent in the US, saying: “Jarrell Miller’s making a lot of noise right now.
“We look at potential opponents for Anthony Joshua, particularly in the United States. Jarrell Miller’s at the top of the list.”
Hearn has also pitched the idea of fighting Miller to AJ, and it sounds like Joshua is keen.
“I think Jarrell Miller is one of the true heavyweights,” Hearn added.
“I’ve talked to Anthony about Jarrell. He rates him highly, he thinks he’s good fun and he’d be up for a fight like Jarrell Miller. He’d be one of the perfect guys to come over and take on in the States”
In the meantime, Joshua is scheduled to defend his IBF heavyweight title against Carlos Takam from Cameroon, who has a 35-3-1 record with 17 KO’s, on Saturday night at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.
Joshua will be concentrating on taking it one fight at a time, but he knows his career path, and it seems Miller could now be on that.
