Much-hyped heavyweight contender Jared Anderson has predicted who would come out on top should Anthony Joshua ever fight Deontay Wilder.
Anderson will be hoping that his own name will one day be in the frame to fight either of these two big-hitting former world champions. With 16 wins from 16 and steady steps up, not many in the sport are doubting that he can get there.
He counts Tyson Fury as a fan, too. The Brit, having sparred Anderson, has branded him the ‘future ruler’ of the heavyweight division.
Earlier in the year the American faced his toughest test in the ring when he came up against former champion Charles Martin.
The 10-round fight saw him lose his 100% knockout rate but also proved he could deal with some genuine pressure and still stay strong late on. He backed up that rare points win with a knockout of Andrii Rudenko in August.
In a video shared by FightHype, Anderson picked a winner between Joshua and Wilder when asked on his own social media who would come out on top by fans.
“I got Wilder.”
Should Joshua beat Otto Wallin and Wilder come through Joseph Parker, many are hoping the two will finally face each other some point in early 2024.
Promoter Eddie Hearn tells Boxing Social that that is indeed the plan, putting an end to an almost decade long transatlantic rivalry that’s still yet to make it inside the ropes.
