Jarrell Miller casts doubt over facing Joshua in May US debut after revealing there have been no talks with Eddie Hearn

Eddie Hearn has claimed if Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury agree a rematch, AJ will fight Big Baby, 30, in his hometown New York.

But Dmitry Salita has cast doubts on a meeting by giving fans an update on the potential bout.

He told World Boxing News: “There have been no new developments.

“I have not had any discussions about a possible Anthony Joshua vs Jarrell Miller fight.

“I saw some reports about the Joshua v Miller fight being possible for DAZN in June. But I haven’t communicated with Eddie (Hearn) about this possibility.

“I have nothing to comment on at the moment."

If Fury and Wilder meet, reborn Dillian Whyte would be the only realistic alternative for Joshua, 29.

But Salita talked down the prospect – insisting supporters worldwide do not want to see AJ face a man he has already beaten.

He added: “Joshua already knocked out Dillian Whyte. So while it may be an interesting fight in the UK, I don’t know the interest for it in world boxing terms.

“Miller vs Joshua is one of the biggest fights in boxing. I am confident it will happen at the right time. If it’s Joshua’s next fight I don’t know, that’s up to him.

“No dates have been discussed at the moment. We are moving forward with progressing Jarrells career on his path to a world title.

“We want to make history and join the ranks of Brooklyn heavyweight greats Mike Tyson and Riddick Bowe.

“There have not been any real discussions so there is not a deadline that I am aware of.

“I see Jarrell eventually becoming the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world from Brooklyn, New York.

“Jarrell wants to fight the best champions and contenders in the division. He has expressed his interest in fighting Joshua, Wilder and Fury. He wants the best and biggest names.

“With Jarrell’s credentials in the ring and charisma outside it, each one of these super fights would be huge cross-over sporting events.”
