American boxer Jarrell Miller has claimed that he won't be Anthony Joshua's next opponent, and instead has indicated a possible September fight with the English heavyweight.

Wembley Stadium has been booked out for Joshua in April, but there is no opponent as of yet as his promoter Eddie Hearn is still unable to find an opponent for the current WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight world champion.

Deontay Wilder, Dillian Whyte and Tyson Fury have all either rejected Hearn and Joshua's offer, or have ignored it completely.

As a result of this, American heavyweight Jarrell Miller has been tipped as a potential opponent, but the fight wouldn't take place at Wembley and would instead involve Joshua travelling stateside to fight Miller at Madison Square Garden in New York.

However, as per SunSport, Miller has received no offers to fight the Brit, and instead thinks that it will be Whyte who will face off against Joshua in April. 

"I think it will be Dillian Whyte, they were basically offering Dillian Whyte £3m and he made around £2.5m for the Dereck Chisora fight.

“AJ only wants to offer some chump change money, that’s why Dillian turned it down - and I don’t blame him either.

“You’ve got to pay, plain and simple - but I do think he’ll fight Dillian Whyte next.

“And then he can come to America, but I ain’t playing fair and I’m playing for cheap.

“Maybe September, I think that’s the closest I can see us fighting right now. We’re going to prepare for everything and we’re open to all options.”

Although he thinks that he will be fighting Joshua in September as opposed to April, Miller has confirmed that he wants to fight the 29-year-old and won't shy away.

Joshua's last fight was in September 2018 against Alexander Povetkin at Wembley in front of a crowd or nearly 80,000, and it resulted in Joshua's 22nd win.

We now wait to see who is 23rd could come against.
