Heavyweight contender Jarrell Miller has received several offers for a potential fight with IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO world champion Anthony Joshua.

If a deal can be reached, that contest would come in June, at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

According to Miller, the offers for a contest with Joshua have been getting a lot better.

But Miller is still not getting overly excited.

He still believes Dillian Whyte is the frontrunner to face Joshua in a rematch, potentially on April 13th at Wembley Stadium in London.

Whyte was knocked out by Joshua in a seven round fire-fight, back in December of 2015.

“If AJ fights Dillian Whyte, or maybe I get to knock him out in June. We’re waiting on finding out exactly what’s going to happen with those two guys first. I’m not the kind of guy that gets gassed up. When I see pen and paper, then that’s when I take it more serious. All been verbal talk. We start seeing something formally in black and white, then we’ll get a little more serious. Right now it’s all talk,” Miller told Sky Sports.

“They are finding ways to make it happen. They can, I don’t think it was a big problem. I think AJ really wants the easier fight, which is Dillian Whyte, but they’re trying to give Dillian Whyte the benefit of the doubt.”

Miller is hoping to find out in the coming days, if Joshua plans to face him in June or move forward with a rematch against Whyte in April.

“We’ve already heard offers,” Miller said. “The number has definitely got better, but like I said before, I don’t think the fight for me is that hard to be made. AJ definitely wants the Dillian Whyte fight before he wants my fight. That’s why they’ve given Dillian Whyte such a chance to make the fight.

“I think if Dillian Whyte really wants the fight, they’ll make the fight happen. I’ve heard that he’s [Joshua] in talks today with Dillian Whyte. Let’s hope we know something by Thursday, Friday, which is perfect timing for me. I think it’s still 50-50, because like I said before, Dillian Whyte is still in the driving seat. It’s not like Dillian Whyte has really fell off the map.”
