Tyson Fury is already planning to have Jared Anderson as part of his camp for the Dillian Whyte fight and also wants the American to feature on the undercard.

The all-British heavyweight showdown was finally confirmed on Friday night with Fury’s co-promoter Frank Warren winning the purse bids to host the WBC heavyweight title showdown.

With the bout expected to take place in April, ‘The Gypsy King’ is eager to put work in with 22-year-old Anderson, who was a sparring partner in his last two meetings against Deontay Wilder.

Anderson has moved 11-0 since turning professional in 2019 with Fury labelling him the future of the heavyweight division once he retires.

Fury’s father John has also named him the heir to the heavyweight throne. ‘I do believe he can be the next big thing when Tyson is gone,’ Fury Snr said last year.

Reacting to Friday’s confirmation, Fury’s US-based promoter Bob Arum revealed the first thing the Briton discussed was working with Anderson again, also demanding he is part of the card which would likely serve as a UK debut for the youngster.

‘He’s really over the moon,’ Arum told Fight Hype.

‘I talked to him right after the purse bid.

‘He was really happy, and the first thing he asked me is he wanted Jared Anderson over there to spar with him.

‘We had Anderson programmed for a fight in March, and we’ll make him one of the principle supports on the Fury-Whyte card in April.’

Fury’s camp for the Whyte fight could also include former WBO champion Joseph Parker.

The two have developed a close friendship with the New Zealand fighter training in Fury’s hometown of Morecambe ahead of his fight with Dereck Chisora last December.
