Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has made an offer to heavyweight contender Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller to challenge unified world titleholder Anthony Joshua in June, Miller co-promoter Greg Cohen told ESPN on Monday.

Cohen said the offer is for Brooklyn, New York’s Miller to face Joshua on June 1 or June 8 at Madison Square Garden in New York in a fight that would stream on DAZN in the United States. It would mark the U.S. debut for Joshua, who is a megastar in his home country of the United Kingdom.

“Eddie has made an offer and we'll see what happens,” Cohen said. “Obviously, for every fighter, promoter and manager what’s better than fighting for the heavyweight championship of the world? We’ve been discussing it for a while but now we have an official offer.”

Cohen said the first offer came about a week ago but that the sides have made a lot of progress and are much closer to a deal.

“There has been substantial movement on the money and we’re under a million dollars apart at his point,” said Cohen, who co-promotes Miller with Dmitry Salita.

Cohen said they have not yet worked out language for a rematch clause, which Joshua would have in the event he lost the optional defense, or the particulars on options that Matchroom Boxing would receive on future Miller fights. But Cohen, Salita and Hearn have a good relationship as Hearn has worked with them to put Miller’s past four bouts on Matchroom Boxing cards. Joshua has never shown any serious desire to fight in the United States, but those close to him believe he began to warm to the idea when he joined Hearn in New York in mid-December when Hearn was co-promoting a fight between his fighter, Rocky Fielding, and Canelo Alvarez.
