Australian-based boxing journalist Anthony Cocks has been covering the sport for over 15 years for various print and online publications. He refuses to believe that Roberto Duran ever lost to Tommy Hearns and says that Jeff Fenech would destroy Chuck Norris, Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali on the same night.

Unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua 22-0 (21) will defend his WBA, IBF and WBO world titles against Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller 23-0-1 (20) in his long-awaited US debut at the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York City on June 1, live on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK and DAZN in the US.

The fight will mark the first time the 29-year-old British champion has fought away from home as a pro.

“The time has come to head across the Atlantic and defend my heavyweight titles in the USA,” said Joshua.

“I am looking forward to taking on another challenge with a good boxer and a brilliant talker, it will be an exciting fight, I will leave nothing to chance and plan on dismantling Miller in style to make my mark.”

Bookmakers have already framed the market with Joshua backers getting -600 (1/6) while Miller’s fans can get on at +475 (19/4).

The 30-year-old Brooklynite is adamant the hometown crowd will provide him with a significant advantage on fight night.

“AJ is making a huge mistake coming over here to fight me in my own backyard. He wants to announce himself on the American stage but all he’s doing is delivering me those belts by hand,” said Miller.

“It’s dog-eat-dog in the ring and this dog has got a bigger bite. He’ll be leaving New York empty-handed.

“This is the fight that I’ve been chasing all my life and on June 1 I’m going to achieve the thing I was born to do and win the heavyweight championship of the world.

“That punk AJ is standing in the way of my dreams and on June 1 he’s getting run the hell over!”
