Anthony Joshua will cross the Atlantic to protect his three titles in the heavyweight boxing.
The champion will meet Jared Miller in New York on June 1, officially announced by the British headquarters.
Arena will be Madison Square Garden, and Miller, called the Big Baby, is a New Yorker and has never been a title. He has 23 wins and one draw on the profiling.
Joshua (22 wins, zero losses) will defend the belts in the IBF, WBA and WBO versions, and will be boxing for the first time outside of the United Kingdom.
"It's been a great honor for me to fight at Wembley and in Cardiff, the UK's biggest arenas, but it's time for a new culture," he said. I will face a good boxer and even better in the fairy tale rival. "
Critics will undoubtedly have because fans and boxing specialists rub their hands for battle between the winner of the rematch Deonte Wilder – Tyson Fury, and the champion. But for now, such a scenario will wait.
Joshua enters one of the greatest sports arenas in the world, where giants such as Mohamed Ali, Evander Holifffield, Shugar Ray Robinson and Lennox Lewis have been boxing.
From a marketing point of view, the move is judged to be brilliant, because the British super champion will raise his interest in the ocean. It is well known that US sports fans value the most they see on their pay-per-view paid pay television market and do not have high opinion of champions from Europe or Asia.
