Next fight

Joshua new opponent imminent

Heavyweight Joshua was initially due to defend his IBF, WBA and WBO titles against Jarrell Miller in his American debut, with the bout set for Madison Square Garden in New York.

However, Miller was ruled out after a second failed drugs test, leaving promoter Eddie Hearn needing to find a replacement for the main event.

Speaking at a press conference to promote Dillian Whyte's July fight with Oscar Rivas, Barry Hearn, Eddie's father, declared they are "very close" to confirming the identity of Joshua's next foe.

Parker's next fight in the US?

American magazine The Ring claims Parker has agreed to fight American Bryant Jennings in Atlantic City on 19 August.

However, David Higgins, head of Parker's promoters Duco, said the bout hasn't been confirmed. He said they were in negotiations with the Jennings camp, but said they had other options on the table including a fight with Russian Alexander Ustinov. Higgins said no deal will be made until the Parker camp are satisfied with the terms.
