Exciting heavyweight prospect Jared ‘Big Baby’ Anderson says he will not now fight on the Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte undercard at Wembley Stadium on Saturday April 23.
The American, who has a perfect 11-0 record, with all of his wins coming inside distance, had been expected to feature on the huge London show against Christian Hammer in front of more than 90,000 fans.
He has now announced though that he will not be able to fight due to an injury, and admits he rushed his training camp.
Jared Anderson reveals injury blow
The Top Rank prospect revealed the news in an Instagram post, explaining:
“To all my fans and supporters, I would like to personally apologize, because I will no longer be able to fight on the Fury vs Whyte undercard due to injury I rushed this camp and now I have to go into hiding and will be bacc 10x stronger.
“Yours truly, the Big Baby”.
The Anderson news is a big blow for knowledgeable UK fight fans, who will have taken note of his terrific potential.
‘Big Baby’ was impressive last October on another Fury undercard as he dismantled Vladimir Tereshkin in double-quick time before ‘The Gypsy King’ went out to KO Deontay Wilder in their epic trilogy fight.
Anderson news adds to day of drama
The news that ‘Big Baby’ is off the bill just added to a day of huge drama on the Fury vs Whyte front. It was topped by an astonishing argument between Fury’s co-promoter Frank Warren and Whyte’s legal representative Jeff Benz which played out on talkSPORT radio on Friday.

The row just continued the cold war between the two camps which appears to show no sign of thawing as we move under a month until fight night.
Whyte of course failed to turn up to the press conference to officially announce the fight at Wembley Stadium last month, leaving Warren to describe the situation as “madness”
