Anthony Joshua has the ball in his court regarding a potential fight in the US against Jarrell Miller, according to the American heavyweight contender's promoter.

Dmitry Salita, who co-promotes Miller with Matchroom's Eddie Hearn - Katie Taylor's promoter - insists 'Big Baby' could offer a breakthrough for Joshua in the US market.

"Jarrell is the best American heavyweight, and has always expressed his interest to fight Joshua, so the ball is in his court," Salita told Sky Sports.

"This is one of the biggest possible fights in boxing for 2019.

"If it happens at Madison Square Garden, it would bring back the heavyweight memories of Mike Tyson and Riddick Bowe, the boxing greats from Brooklyn, New York.

"Jarrell grew up in Brooklyn, it would be a huge event in New York. One of the biggest heavyweight fights in Madison Square Garden, literally and figuratively."
