Anthony Joshua will fight in the US for the first time when he defends his IBF, WBA and WBO world heavyweight titles against Jarrell Miller on June 1.

Joshua, 29, will take on Miller at Madison Square Garden in the undefeated American's home city of New York, BBC Sport reported.

Miller, with 23 wins and a draw, has never fought for a world title.

The 30-year-old will almost certainly be the heaviest opponent Joshua has faced as a professional having weighed 22st 7lbs in his last contest.

Miller – nicknamed 'Big Baby' – won 20 of his fights by knockout but Joshua represents a huge step-up in class.
