Anderson, who is ranked #15 WBC (12-0, 12 KOs) who rose to fame as the partner of champ Tyson Fury, will be looking to claim his 13th straight knockout since when he started his professional career in 2019.
Anderson is a good amateur in America but nothing out of this world. His promoter, Bob Arum, spoke to him, saying he is a future world champion.

“It is becoming a normal thing,” said Jared Anderson, boasting to fight about how he got used to taking down all his opponents. “I am very happy to have won those knockouts. I wish the battles lasted a little longer.

“Do I think it is possible that he has covered the distance? No I did not. Do I think it is possible? Without a doubt. He can shoot a lot. We saw that before Pulev, which I think is a bad fight for his career.
“I think he took a lot of penalties in that game,” Jared Anderson said of his opponent, cruiser Jerry Forrest this Saturday night.
“I’m just different. I have come to the body; I change everything. I change levels, and I keep the pressure constant. Even if I’m not hitting you, I’m facing you, making you think about what I have to do next.
“I don’t see him creating distance, but it is always possible. If he does, I salute him. Now that WBC has put me in the top 15 of the leaderboard, I think I could see more big fights than I expected than last time. “Hopefully we can fight,” Anderson said.
