Joshua boxes in New York against Miller to hold world titles in heavyweight

Anthony Joshua takes on in his next fight in June in New York against the American Jarrell Miller. The Englishman defends his world titles in the heavyweight in boxing.

Joshua hoped initially to be able to compete against zijnlandgenoot Tyson Fury and the American Deontay Wilder, but who prefer a rematch of undecided battle at the beginning of december in Los Angeles.

“Why has this fool waited so long? If we were not would be interested?”, said Joshua on Twitter when Shelly Finken, manager of Wilder, still cried like a fight with him to want to settle.

“Anyway, well done Fury! They wanted to see you go down, because they assumed that your career was over. I will your party offer when you are ready. Both of you.”

Joshua won in september at Wembley in London on knock-out of the Russian Alexander Povetkin and held thereby the kampioensgordels of the global unions, WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO in possession.
