Boxing: Young heavyweight contender Jared Anderson is making waves in the industry already. He has won every one of his 11 fights so far in his professional career inside the distance.
He is not lacking in confidence either. He has already proclaimed that he is currently among the finest in the world.
In addition, he plans to retire after four years as the heavyweight champion at only 26 years old.
Such claims could seem absurd if they came from someone else. Anderson describes them as just immature. He’s only 22 but has a lot of skill. Even Tyson Fury, who spars with him, has endorsed him to someday rule the division.
“I’m one of the best heavyweights in the world right now and I’m confident in my ability,” Anderson told Sky Sports.
“I’m keen to prove myself right.
“I’m happy people are backing me but I’ve got my own accomplishments and my own goals that I’m setting for myself and I want to continue to get better every fight.”
He added, “Everything I do will probably be, nine times out of 10, more than likely to be done before the time I turn 26 because that will probably be the time I’m done with boxing.”
Anderson “100 per cent” expects to be world champion by then and potentially undisputed. “I know I’m capable of doing it,” he said. “My goal is to be rich, not famous.”
He might not succeed in that objective. Boxing authorities have already taken notice of Anderson.
On the same card as Richard Commey vs. Jose Pedraza, he engages in boxing with Miljan Rovcanin at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
“I think I always steal the show with just me being me. The main event is some good fighters and I wish them nothing but the best in their bout. But nine times out of 10 I’m going to be the main bout that everyone’s looking forward to on a card,” Anderson said.
“I’m planning on getting the job done in an impressive fashion.
“Expect fast hands and another knockout.
“Everything’s been good and kind of going how I want it to. We’re moving really fast, only 22 and I think it’s only going to get better.
“I hope to continue on with that and be successful in my career. I think I’m going at a good pace.
“A step up would be great. I can’t wait for that card to get a bigger fight. Until then we’re just going to keep handling the task at hand.”
