With Anthony Joshua’s US debut in doubt due to Jarrell Miller’s failed drug test, bookmakers have priced up who his next opponent may be.
Manuel Charr (5/1), Michael Hunter (6/1) and Trevor Bryan (10/1) are also in the betting, while the chances of AJ and Jarrell Miller actually meeting despite the ‘adverse findings’ in his drug test are rated at 8/1.
People have clamoured to see AJ fight either Deontay Wilder or Tyson Fury, but our number crunchers believe that’s unlikely to happen this time around and make them both a 100/1 chance.
Asked about the situation spokesman Paddy Power said: “Roll up, roll up, who fancies jumping in the ring with Anthony Joshua at late notice to get battered?
“It looks like there’s an opening to fight AJ at Madison Square Garden following a positive Jarell Miller drug test. We think the most likely opponent will be Adam Kownacki – though really, we all just want to see him fight Fury or Wilder – but that’s rated 100/1 – so I’m not holding my breath.”
2/1 Adam Kownacki
4/1 Dillian Whyte
5/1 Manuel Charr
5/1 Luis Ortiz
6/1 Joseph Parker
6/1 Michael Hunter
