Anthony Joshua could make USA debut against Jarrell Miller with Deontay Wilder fight on ice until 2019

The IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champ’s unification bout with WBC king Deontay Wilder looks to be on ice until 2019.

But promoter Eddie Hearn will today announce a deal to stage 20 shows in the States.

Unbeaten Miller, 29, has won 21 of his 22 bouts — 18 by knockout.

But AJ, 28, needs the WBA to OK a fight with the American after they told him to face mandatory challenger Alex Povetkin.

It is understood the fight shows will be screened by specialist sports streaming service Danz, who are expanding into America.
