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.

Cable TV giant HBO are understood to be trying to tie up a deal of their own.

An added complication is that Joshua’s contract with Matchroom runs out in November and all other major promoters including UFC chief Dana White, will make bids to sign AJ.

Matchroom are in the box seat to sign Joshua again but it won’t stop rivals making tempting offers.
