After a long hiatus of almost 18 months, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will fight each other for the third time. Additionally, it will be Fury’s first world title defense. This fight was earlier slated for July 24. Unfortunately, as Fury tested positive for Covid-19, he had to withdraw, and the fight received a new date, i.e. October 9.

After recovering, Fury has engaged himself in training sessions to a full extent. Also, he had a really special prodigy named Jared Anderson, helping him in his training and sparring sessions. Recently, ‘The Gypsy King’, in his conversation with Kevin Iole, spoke about this special talent.

Fury said, “Yes, I have him in for all these big fights. He’s my little secret weapon. He’s not so little, he’s massive. But yeah, he’s a very very good boxer, very good fighter. He’s a full package.”

This is not the first time Fury has praised Jared Anderson. He also attributed this young gun as the next heavyweight champion of the world.

Despite being just 21, Anderson, who is undefeated in his professional boxing stint, has played a pivotal role in Fury’s training camps for a long time. He also helped the Brit prepare for his previous bout with Wilder.
