Boxing Fight: According to promoter Bob Arum, Jared Anderson’s status as the eventual heir to Tyson Fury will be on the line when he fights in front of a large American audience.
Anderson was featured on the Fury vs Wilder 3 card when he knocked out Vladimir Tereshkin in the second round for his tenth win, all by knockout, but he will now take another significant step towards becoming a heavyweight star.
Anderson’s promoter, Bob Arum, has stated that he would be on the Vasiliy Lomachenko vs. Richard Commey show on December 11, immediately following US television coverage of the Heisman Trophy.
“Jared Anderson, which shows how highly we regard him, will open that show.”
“After watching the Heisman, millions of fans will continue to watch boxing and see who Tyson Fury thinks will be the next heavyweight champion after him – and that’s Jared Anderson.”
Fury, who recruited Anderson for furious sparring sessions in preparation for last month’s trilogy clash with Deontay Wilder, predicted the 21-year-old to control the division.
Arum assisted Fury in launching his second world title reign, and the Top Rank owner feels Anderson can eventually dethrone the WBC champion.
“Tyson claimed the next heavyweight champion after him is Jared Anderson, and I watched with my own eyes how Jared gave him tremendous sparring on both [the second and third] Wilder fights,” Arum said.
“There’s one – Jared Anderson,” Fury’s father, John, previously told Sky Sports. With [promoter] Bob Arum, he’s an unbeaten heavyweight.
“I believe he has the potential to be the next big thing after Tyson leaves.”
“However, the kid is just 21 years old.” He still has some work to do.
“He’s the only one who sticks out in my opinion.” Who are these other guys? They’re all on the same level.”
Arum, who has promoted a number of heavyweight hopefuls, concedes that Anderson has high expectations.
“He’s 21 years old. “He’s had ten fights, all knockouts,” Arum remarked.
“I’ve adored him since the beginning. He had an impressive amateur pedigree.
“The way he carries himself reminds me of a young Muhammad Ali.”
“I wouldn’t put him in the same category, but I admire the way he carries himself and the confidence he exudes when stepping into a ring.”
“Obviously, I have big expectations for him. It’s early, but I believe he’s the real deal.”
