Eddie Hearn named three fights for Dillian Whyte in case Joshua fights Miller next

Anthony Joshua is awaiting whether or not he will be making his US debut against Jarrell Miller at Madison Square Garden in the Summer.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has held a meeting with Dillian Whyte about the potential of a rematch between Whyte and Joshua.

“Yes, definitely we’ve talked about that, and if he fought in the States he would go out and do at least five, six weeks, finishing his camp up in the States.

“They would love him out there. It would be massive for him, his brand and his career. Obviously, as a Brit we would rather see him over here, but when you talk about being a global star, I think it would be a massive statement.”

Hearn has claimed there is still time for Whyte, even Tyson Fury, to agree on terms to fight Anthony Joshua.

“I think if the Dillian Whyte fight happens, it’s likely that will be pushed to May or June now,” Hearn said.

Hearn also said that Whyte feels April is ‘too early’, but has said: “Miller is still live for early June at MSG. I think over the weekend, we’ll make our final decision, and get an announcement out next week.”

When questioned who he thought was the frontrunner, Hearn claimed anyone could be, including Tyson Fury.

“Fury could phone me this afternoon and become the front runner. Things can change all the time.

“Certainly Miller has shown a willingness to take this fight. There’s a lot of noise about Anthony Joshua’s US debut. I quite like that idea, but still, anything can happen, but we are close to pulling the trigger for sure.”
