Default Anthony Joshua's next fight confirms he's this era's Floyd Mayweather

[Link View Has Been Removed. Click Here To Unlock This Content.]

It's official — Anthony Joshua, the four-belt heavyweight boxing champion, will defend his titles against Jarrell Miller in his next fight.

If you're frowning and scratching your head because you have no idea who Miller is, don't worry… you're not alone. It's a fight that very few will have wanted, perhaps only Miller himself.

Joshua, for example, didn't want it six months ago. Just one day after he obliterated the 2004 Olympic gold medalist Alexander Povetkin in September, Joshua ran a Twitter poll asking fans who they wanted him to fight next.

There were three options given, and it's telling that Miller failed to make Joshua's shortlist.

Miller, though unbeaten in 24 fights, has never been involved in a bout of this magnitude and will be seen as a wild outsider when the two come to blows on June 1 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

He's overmatched in all departments.

Miller has only gone the 12-round distance once, is inexperienced at the elite level, and there is a considerable gap in technical quality and overall ability between him and Joshua.

Mayweather did not always seek the greatest challenges.

Mayweather is renowned for his one-sided victory over Manny Pacquiao, which earned him hundreds of millions of dollars, which he tells us often enough. He banked a similar amount for taking on the UFC fighter Conor McGregor, who had never professionally boxed before in a bout Business Insider dubbed a "circus" at the time.

Still, Mayweather did not always seek out big challenges.

Yes, he forced Genaro Hernandez, the champion at the time, to quit in 1998, Mayweather's first title fight aged 21. He rematched Jose Luis Castillo immediately after going life-and-death with him in a back-and-forth battle in 2002. And he overcame Oscar de la Hoya in a competitive bout in 2007.

But for every Hernandez, Castillo, and de la Hoya there's a Robert Guerrero, Victor Ortiz, and Andre Berto — fighters who had no right sharing a ring with Mayweather, but he took them on for money, rather than legacy. It was an easy way for him to make a buck. Tens of millions of them, in fact.

The art of prizefighting is to hit and get paid while taking the least amount of damage possible. Take one look at Mayweather, 41, and you'll be hard-pressed to find a single scar despite his 50 bouts.

The finest defensive fighter since Compubox records began, Mayweather was rarely ever troubled in the ring. He made over $1 billion in prize money and left the sport on his own terms with a strip club, a property empire that includes a New York skyscraper, expensive cars, multi-million dollar mansions, and two private jets.

He took on one of the toughest sports out there, won, and is now retired for good.

In the words of McGregor, "fair f---- to you, Floyd."

But now it's Joshua's turn. The Londoner went life-and-death with Wladimir Klitschko in a back-and-forth battle for the ages in 2017. He overcame a busted nose to outlast Carlos Takam, annexed the WBA title when he took on the unbeaten Joseph Parker, and pulverized Povetkin last year.

His choice of opponent now is not one that will enhance Joshua's legacy, but it will be one that enhances his bank balance.

Before Mayweather beat up Berto, he knew he'd earn a guaranteed $32 million. That figure would clearly rise once sponsorship, live gate receipts, and pay-per-view sales were counted after the 2015 event.

For beating up Miller, Joshua will earn the same — $32 million and, like Mayweather's, those numbers will keep rising after the event.

To paraphrase McGregor, "fair f---- to you, Josh."

Mayweather will be remembered for his flawless record, the mastery of his craft, and his dominant wins over his greatest rivals.

Joshua is not there, yet. But he's close.

If he obliterates Miller in headline-grabbing fashion in New York this summer, the fight could well be a springboard to bigger and better things across the pond.

Joshua is a beast in the ring and a gentleman outside of it. He's got a similar appeal to The Rock — a big, friendly, giant. A bada--. He's tall, dark, and handsome. He's friendly to fans, ferocious to fighters. But above all, he's never once failed in one of the most gruelling, soul-sucking, and bruising sports out there.

He has the ingredients to become an even bigger superstar but to grace the sofas of Jimmy Kimmel, James Corden, and Jimmy Fallon, to be an even more valuable hit with blue-chip sponsors, and to sell out Las Vegas arenas with celebrities shelling out thousands of dollars to watch him at ring-side, Joshua needs to do what Mayweather did — negotiate fights with his greatest rivals, and then beat the snot out of them while barely breaking a sweat.

He's done that once already, toppling Klitschko, the division's old master. But there are two more giants waiting to rattle his cage — Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury, both of whom will be looking to fight each other a second time this summer after dueling to a draw in December 2018.

It is only a matter of time before Joshua fights the winner, most probably in Las Vegas. And when he does, you can be sure of one thing — he will generate the sort of money that Mayweather only made a few times in his career. Joshua will be a pay-per-view fighter in multiple countries earning hundreds of millions of dollars. He is taking on boxing before our very own eyes, but only time will tell whether he wins like Mayweather, or loses like countless others.

How does a Joshua propagandanist not know about Canelo and DAZN?

Where are Canelo’s articles to convince fans his state of earnings?

“Expected earnings” aren’t guarantees. “It is understood Joshua will earn...” means nothing, ask Robbie Barrett.

I'm not being funny, but if people don't know who Miller is, when he's arguably #5 in the world, then are they even boxing fans? What does it matter?

You could level the same accusation against Povetkin, Parker, Breazeale, Martin, Whyte.

I don't see nobody criticising Fury or Wilder when they took on Pianeta and Ortiz. They have less profile than Miller, where was their passive aggressive criticism?

Mayweather was the greatest fighter of his era, a top 10 ATG.

Floyd fighting an undefeated KO artist? Not a chance.. outside of his earlier years.. Floyd would have waited for him to lose or get old before stepping in the ring

Comparing Pianeta or Miller to Ortiz is not a logical approach given Ortiz would flatten both and has always been ranked higher let alone a more pure boxer than them.

Try something else.

Ortiz is literally ranked lower than Miller at this very moment by boxrec, the WBA and the WBO.

Still trying to push Ortiz as some great fighter?

Povetkin, Whyte and Miller are rated higher than Ortiz.

When you lose demotion is expected with point algorithm. Boxrec has up/down just like stocks
