Anthony Joshua’s Next Fight

Why is his next fight cancelled?

Joshua was due to fight Miller at New York’s Madison Square Garden – the British fighter’s US debut. But Miller was denied a licence after an “adverse finding” from a sample taken on 20 March.After Jarel Miller has failed 2 drug tests it’s very unclear as to who his next Opponent will be .

AJ vs Miller was due to happen on June 1st.

Who is rumored ?

Luis Ortiz

Luis Ortiz has been the name on everyone’s lips , the heavy hitter has been approached about the possibility of fighting AJ. However after recent comments from Ortiz’s promoter the fight appears to be an unlikely possibility.

King Kong Boxing accused Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn of using Ortiz, 40, as a “gimmick”. “We just received news from promoter that it’s a no-go and it was all a gimmick and Hearn’s low-ball offers will not be accepted,” wrote King Kong Boxing on Instagram.“No contract even ever got sent so sorry to all the loyal fans. Luis really wanted this title shot.”

Dillian Whyte

The inevitable talk of the British rematch has resurfaced , however it is as always not going to happen. With Hearn wanting AJ to have a 65/35 money split , even if Whyte were to win.

Wilder or Fury ?

Lets face it this will forever be a rumour and never a reality as AJ is scared to fight anyone on his level or better , so he will continue dodging them till the end of his career.
