Eddie Hearn gave Dillian Whyte three names in case Anthony Joshua fights Jarrell Miller

Dillian Whyte Press Conference

Training plans have been discussed by Anthony Joshua in America as a fight with Jarrell Miller in New York remains an option for a world title defence.

Anthony Joshua is awaiting whether or not he will be making his US debut against Jarrell Miller at Madison Square Garden in the summer - the Englishman has been training for a fortnight, waiting for confirmation of his next fight.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has held a meeting with Dillian Whyte about the potential of a rematch between Whyte and Joshua after he said that a Wembley fight in April was now very unlikely due to the former asking for more time to train for a rematch. 

"Yes, definitely we've talked about that, and if he fought in the States he would go out and do at least five, six weeks, finishing his camp up in the States.

"They would love him out there. It would be massive for him, his brand and his career. Obviously as a Brit we would rather see him over here, but when you talk about being a global star, I think it would be a massive statement."

Hearn has claimed there is still time for Whyte, even Tyson Fury, to agree on terms to fight AJ.

'Big Baby' Miller has insisted he was not far from agreeing a deal for a fight with the British champ, saying there was a 50/50 chance between him or Whyte to challenge Britain's golden boy.

"I think if the Dillian Whyte fight happens, it's likely that will be pushed to May or June now," Hearn said.

Hearn also said that Whyte feels April is 'too early', but has said: "Miller is still live for early June at MSG. I think over the weekend, we'll make our final decision, and get an announcement out next week."

When questioned who he thought was the frontrunner, Hearn claimed anyone could be, including Tyson Fury.

"Fury could phone me this afternoon and become the front runner. Things can change all the time.

"Certainly Miller has shown a willingness to take this fight. There's a lot of noise about Anthony Joshua's US debut. I quite like that idea, but still, anything can happen, but we are close to pulling the trigger for sure."

However, whilst Whyte and Joshua are yet to agree the terms for a rematch, the 2012 Olympic champion could face a different contender, including Dominic Breazeale.

"We talked about the likes of Breazeale, Povetkin, Ortiz. They're all high-risk fights, but I think he believes in himself.

"He's backing himself to keep winning those fights, keep raising his value. That will be in the end of April, as well and again that't something we've got to deal with this weekend."
