Anthony Joshua is set for a career-high pay day in American debut

Reigning WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO World heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (22-0) is set to rake in a monster £25million for fighting Jarrell Miller (23-0) in New York this June.

Fights with WBC champ Deontay Wilder and domestic rival Tyson Fury fell through, and former victim Dillian Whyte branded his proposal from Eddie Hearn as 'utterly ridiculous', causing AJ and team to scrap the scheduled April 13 date booked in at Wembley Stadium to opt for a debut fight in the States instead.

Just three years ago, AJ earned £1.5million against Dominic Breazeale at the O2 Arena in London, but now looks set to pocket over 16-times that amount across the Atlantic in the iconic Madison Square Garden.
