“I plan to embrace the culture and leave with an appetite for more,” said Joshua, whose 22 professional fights have all taken place in Britain.
Miller, with 23 wins and a draw, has never fought for a world title.
Joshua has 22 wins, 21 by knockout. New Zealand’s Joseph Parker is the only fighter to take Joshua the distance.
Joshua continued; “I am looking forward to taking on another challenge with a good boxer and a brilliant talker. It will be an exciting fight. I will leave nothing to chance and plan on dismantling Miller in style to make my mark.”
Miller, who is also undefeated said, “AJ is making a huge mistake coming over here to fight me in my own backyard,” Miller said.
“He wants to announce himself on the American stage but all he’s doing is delivering me those belts by hand.
”It’s dog eat dog in the ring, and this dog has got a bigger bite. He’ll be leaving New York empty-handed.”
