High Rank boss Bob Arum has been excessive on unbeaten heavyweight Jared Anderson for some time, and now the long-time Corridor of Fame promoter has a time-frame in thoughts for when Anderson will likely be let off the leash at world title stage. Talking with Speak Sport, Arum mentioned Anderson has “moved from being a prospect to being a contender,” and that the 23-year-old who’s presently excellent at 13-0(13) will likely be able to combat Tyson Fury (assuming Fury remains to be champion on the time) in 2024.
Fury has sparred with Anderson, and the reigning WBC heavyweight champ spoke about how impressed he was with the person from Toledo, Ohio, with Fury himself stating his perception that Anderson would be the man to take over the division when he has gone. However Arum is looking forward to a brilliant combat between Fury and Anderson.
“I’ve my child, who’s not fairly there but, however by 2024 he’ll be prepared [to fight Fury], and that’s Jared Anderson, and that can promote out the large stadium in Las Vegas,” Arum mentioned. “I believe Richard Torrez is a good prospect [also], however he’s nonetheless a prospect, whereas I believe Jared Anderson has moved on from being a prospect to being a contender. I might put him in with anyone as a result of there’s one thing magic about Anderson. Hopefully, Richard Torrez has the identical kind of means and charisma going ahead, however he’s a child, and he began quite a lot of years after Anderson.”
Torrez, an unbeaten southpaw from Tulare, California, is presently simply 4-0(4) as a professional, the 2020 Olympic silver medal winner having gone professional in March of this yr. Torrez is identical age as Anderson at 23, but as Arum says, he began later. Torrez is actually a younger heavyweight to keep watch over.
However Anderson appears to have damaged by by way of being a reputation followers are accustomed to now and so far as being ranked fairly extremely on this planet. There are large issues anticipated of Anderson, a naturally aggressive fighter with a fan-friendly model and method, and subsequent yr ought to see “Large Child” get in there with some High-10 opposition.
Is Arum proper? Will Anderson be difficult for world honors in 2024, maybe towards Tyson Fury? To this point in his professional profession, Anderson has achieved every thing proper, and he has achieved it in model. Anderson’s first combat of 2023 is one thing loads of us are wanting ahead to.
