's announcement that his next fight will be in New York against Jarrell Miller this summer has left a lot of boxing fans feeling shortchanged.
The WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO champion will defend his titles at Madison Square Garden on June 1 against 30-year-old Miller.
It will be Joshua's first fight in the United States but many fans would have preferred to see him return to action at Wembley, and against a bigger name such as Deontay Wilder
or Tyson Fury

Multiple Twitter users took to the internet to ask who Miller is, while another demanded to know what 'credentials' he has that make him worthy of fighting AJ.
Joshua also sounded disappointed as he posted a video to confirm the fight.
He said: 'Myself and Wilder are the current active champions of the world. We were looking to get that fight on April 13 but things happened, boxing politics, I'm sure you guys are aware.
'So we had to branch out and look for other options. Miller came up. It's an exciting fight, he's an undefeated heavyweight.'
Joshua will take on Miller on the same day as football's Champions League final.
Miller, whose nickname is 'Big Baby', is not recognised as one of the world's leading heavyweights but has been in contention to fight Joshua for the past year.
