What has been said?

Jared Anderson:

“I feel like my career is going in the right direction. The only way is up. But I’m still working like it’s my first day. We’re on the job, so make sure you all stay with the journey. Stay with me.”

“I have a better IQ than Merhy. You have to have a high IQ to do this. I have one of the best IQs in the heavyweight division. So, make sure you watch the little things. Make sure you watch for the details.”

“He’s got a beating coming. I always come to entertain. Don’t miss it.”

Ryad Merhy:

"I'm the future guy who is going to beat the future champion, Jared will lose that fight and I'll prove Tyson Fury wrong," he told Sky Sports.

"He is a very young talented fighter who has a lot of things to prove," said Merhy.

"He can switch guard and use both hands, early on we spoke about the power but you have to see who he knocked out before.

"The opponent he had before, to be able to compare who knocks out who we have to be able to see who he fought. He's doing pretty well with his skills, we will see on fight night who is the better fighter."
