The Saudis Could Make Deontay Wilder vs. Jared Anderson

The Saudis are interested in making Deontay Wilder vs. Jared Anderson

The Terence Crawford vs. Israil Madrimov card could host the bout on August 3. Wilder must first overcome Zhilei Zhang on June 1. It is the biggest fight of Wilder’s career since he has to bounce back from his poor performance against Joseph Parker. The Bronze Bomber was out of sorts, only winning one round on the cards. Wilder blamed jetlag, while his trainer, Malik Scott, suggested the Bronze Bomber’s Ayahuasca usage may have hindered him. 

Anderson is also in a career-defining moment. His life outside of the ring has threatened his career. Anderson was arrested last November for driving under the influence and having a gun in his vehicle. ‘The Real Big Baby’ was apprehended again last month, getting charged with a third-degree felony.

This was for avoiding the police during a car chase before crashing his car in Huron County, Michigan, after driving over 130 mph. Anderson secured a victory over Ryad Merhy in his last fight in a dour spectacle. But a win over Wilder could propel Anderson to boxing’s next heavyweight star.
