Veteran promoter, Bob Arum, has revealed that he believes Jared Anderson will declare himself a top contender next year as he continues to advance through the weight classes.
Jared ‘Big Baby’ Anderson was promoted by Arum’s Top Rated and has had the perfect start to his career since turning pro in 2019. At just 23 years old, Anderson has already had an amazing career. defeated with 13 wins to his name, all 13 matches came. direct type.
In his most recent bout, the Ohio-born prospect battled his toughest opponent to date was American janitor Jerry Forrest.
Forrest drew against Zhilei Zhang and Michael Hunter and trailed Kubrat Pulev, Carlos Takam and Jermaine Franklin. Anderson only took two innings became the first man in nearly ten years to take down Forrest.
As a result, Anderson is quickly becoming a household name in the United States and is ranked by the WBC as the current world number 15 heavyweight.
In an interview with Sky SportsArum talks about his high expectations for “Big Baby” in 2023 and that he expects Anderson to announce himself as a championship contender next year.
“This is going to be a big year for Jared. He goes along. He went from being a prospect to being a competitor, or on the sidelines of being a competitor. I consider ’23 to be the year Jared Anderson is going to be the real top contender for the heavyweight belt.
I think the kid is massive, massive talent. I think he will really shine next year.”
Anderson’s Ring Road is also a sight to behold. In just thirteen bouts, he’s stepped into the ring as a prisoner, a cook, Chucky (from Child’s Play) and the Grinch.
However, despite his fun outside of the ring, his skill inside it is no joke. So much so that WBC champion Tyson Fury has been fighting Anderson, since he was just 19 years old.
Early Anderson will keep an eye on Fury as an opponent rather than a fencing partner, and even named one of The Gypsy King’s recent opponents after his victory over Forrest.
