‘He is being Heir to heavyweight throne’ He can’t beat me’ – Deontay Wilder called out by fighter Tyson Fury tipped 

The ‘Bronze Bomber’ is expected to face Zhilei Zhang in June as he looks to bounce back from a shock defeat to Joseph Parker, and will not be short of options if he returns to winning ways.

One of those is American prospect Jared Anderson, who Wilder’s former foe Tyson Fury has tipped to reach the pinnacle of the division and become the next world champion.

Anderson, who takes on Ryad Merhy on April 13, believes his domestic counterpart would be no match for him.

“I respect Deontay,” he said. “I think he has one hell of a punch.

“But he can’t beat me, and I’m just going to leave it at that. I’m too much of a well-rounded boxer, and I’m going to beat him in great fashion.

“The biggest thing they’ve been telling me is to stay the course and continue to try to get better every day.

“So that when they do pop up with that big name to put me on the map for the world to see, that I am 100-percent ready, and that I don’t have to get ready.”

Anderson has 16 wins since starting his undefeated professional career, with his most notable victory coming against former world champion Charles Martin in June 2023.

The ‘Real Big Baby’ sparred with Fury for his showdown with Dillian Whyte in April, and the ‘Gypsy King’ was seriously impressed with the rising star.

He tipped Anderson as the ‘heir to the throne’, and it will be words that will inspire Anderson to move on to big things.
