Tyson Fury’s sparring partner Jared Anderson had slammed suggestions he tampered with his gloves ahead of his win over Deontay Wilder in February.
Fury dethroned the American in Las Vegas to claim the WBC belt, however accusations that the Brit used tampered gloves have resurfaced, after Wilder’s brother Marsellos released an Instagram post, insisting an autopsy result proves that a dent on the side of the ex-champion’s head was caused by a “blunt object,” rather than a “glove or fist.”
However, Anderson like Fury has refuted the claims telling Pro Boxing Fans the allegations are “blasphemy” and rather the 31-year-old implemented the game plan he worked on alongside him in the gym.
The 20-year-old, nicknamed ‘Big Baby’ also denied suggestions he should change the alias he shares with Jarrell Miller, who reportedly failed a drug test ahead of his now cancelled return to action against Jerry Forrest on July 9.
Anderson, who faces Hector Perez on the undercard of the Top Rank show inside the Bubble at the MGM Grand Conference Center also discussed his signing with Bob Arum’s company, his ambitions to become a Heavyweight great and the Black Lives Matter movement.
