Tyson Fury’s Father Thinks Jared Anderson Could Become Next Great Heavyweight
The father of Tyson Fury has heaped major praise on Jared Anderson.
Anderson is 9-0 in his young pro boxing career. All nine victories have ended in a knockout or TKO. He recently saw action on April 10. He stopped Jeremiah Karpency via second-round knockout.
During a chat with Sky Sports, John Fury expressed his belief that at the moment, no one can defeat his son, Tyson.
“Not in this era, no. Not unless Muhammad Ali, Marvin Hagler, Ernie Shavers, ‘Sugar Ray’ Leonard, Tommy Hearns, Roberto Duran, and Floyd Mayweather all rolled into one! They aren’t going to beat him. You can see the crop of heavyweights – they are all good, but not in Tyson’s class. Tyson is out there on his own. Unless there is a fighter born, who comes out of nowhere with an amazing talent, but I’ve not seen him yet.”
With that said, John believes Anderson can take the mantle once Tyson decides to hang up his gloves.
“There’s one – Jared Anderson. He’s an unbeaten heavyweight with [promoter] Bob Arum. I do believe he can be the next big thing when Tyson is gone. But the kid is only 21-years-old. He’s got a bit to do yet. He’s the only one who stands out for me. All these other guys? They are all on the same par.”
