Jared Anderson keeps his perfect record and KO streak unblemished!
In his latest outing, rising knockout artist Jared “Big Baby” Anderson (10-0, 10 KO’s) continued to impress in devastating fashion. He accomplished this by knocking out Vladimir Tereshkin (22-1-1, 12 KO’s) in the second round of their prizefight contested in the belly of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
When fans and pundits ponder about who is the next up-and-coming American heavyweight to keep an eye on, Jared Anderson is a name on the shortlist. For someone who fights in the 240-pound range, he has the athleticism and fluidity of a middleweight. This should come as no shock as Anderson’s talent has been evident for years. His skill has been on dislpay since his amateur days when he won the 2017 and 2018 U.S. National Championships.
Although just being in the fledgling days of his professional career, Big Baby is already surrounded by power players. The Toledo, Ohio native is signed to a long-term deal with promoter Bob Arum at Top Rank. He even served as one of the chief sparring partners for Tyson Fury in preparation for this trilogy bout with Deontay Wilder.
Seeking to learn all styles as soon as possible, the 21-year old bruiser chose to dance with unbeaten southpaw Tereshkin. At 6’6, the fighter who hails from Kovylkino, Russia is a bit of an unknown competitor who has no noticeable wins on his record. However, he clearly was not afraid to fight abroad as he had already fought in seven different countries as a pro. Film study had revealed that Tereshkin did have pop in his punch and a penchant for switch-hitting. However, ultimately none of it was enough to overcome Anderson.
QUICK NIGHT IN THE OFFICE
Anderson began the fight as sharp as the five claws on Freddy Kruger’s murderous glove. Utilizing a pinpoint jab and straight right, Big Baby began dissecting the larger and clumsier Tereshkin like a frog in a junior high school biology class. The first half of the second round quickly devolved into a much uglier fight. The most effective tactic that Tereshkin had was to hold and tie up.
In the end, it made little difference. Big Baby was able to get the Russian to drop his hands with some effective body punching. With the new opening, Anderson nailed Tereshkin with a brain-rattling right hook that clearly shook him up. After absorbing the blow the Anderson began unloading on his rather unresponsive opponent who was pent along the ropes. Referee Kenny Bayless allowed Tereshkin an opportunity to defend himself. Yet, seeing he was not going to, the third man jumped in to halt the fight. While the Russian was no world beater, this was still a good progression win for Anderson.
