Jared Anderson makes easy work of Jeremiah Karpency, now wants the top heavyweights
The heavyweight division is where the hot prospects will get championship-level attention. This brings us to two-time U.S National Championships gold medalist Jared “Big Baby” Anderson (8-0, 8ko).
The 21-year-old Ohio native is well-groomed as the next great American heavyweight, and his career is already skyrocketing under the watchful eyes of Top Rank CEO Bob Arum. The young man has all the ingredients of a good heavyweight: size, athleticism, and devastating power. Hence why all of his opponents have not made it to the final bell.
Jeremiah The Bullfrog” Karpency (16-2-1, 6ko) is the next man up looking to either upset or halt the knockout streak of the young undefeated prospect. Also, he is the younger brother of former light heavyweight contender Tommy Karpency, so boxing runs in the blood.
NEW OPPONENT SAME RESULTS
This was just another day at the office for Big Baby. He came to the ring dressed as a chef and cooked the ribs of the Bullfrog. His extensive amateur pedigree came into play at the beginning of the fight. Hall of Fame fighter George Foreman once said the fight is easy if you use the jab. Anderson did exactly that, landing the jab effortlessly while maintaining distance and avoiding the wild, overhand right from Karpency.
Big Baby had the look of a man waiting for the opportunity. He kept pumping that jab and snapping back the head of his opponent before exploding with a right hook to the rib cage that sent Karpency to the canvas. Bullfrog would get back up and just barely made it out of the round, but it was clear the end was near. As the second round started, Big Baby again used that power jab to push Bullfrog against the ropes and landed another right hook in the same spot.
Karpency went to the canvas and was shaking his head to the ref during the count to indicate he did not want anymore. Big Baby once again stopped another opponent before the final bell sounded, and proved why he is viewed as the future of the heavyweight decision.
During the post-fight interview, Big Baby made it clear he wants the top fighters in the division.
