Boxing Results: Jared Anderson destroys Vladimir Tereshkin
By Jeff Aronow: Jared ‘Big Baby’ Anderson (10-0, 10 KOs) looked impressive last Saturday night in destroying Vladimir Tereshkin (22-1-1, 12 KOs) by a second round in heavyweight action on the undercard of Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder 3 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Anderson put on a performance that showed that he could be the future for the heavyweight division. WBC champion Fury, who spars with ‘Big Baby’ Anderson, believes he’s a future world champion in the making.
The 21-year-old Anderson landed a nice right hand to the head of Tereshkin in round two.
Anderson then crowded the 33-year-old Tereshkin in close and unloaded a burst of power shots to the head of the Russian fighter, prompting referee Kenny Bayless to step in and stop the fight at 2:51 of round two.
Although some boxing fans believed that Tereshkin had initially quit, he reportedly suffered a jaw injury during the fight. With the way that Anderson was unloading on Tereshkin at close range, he was going to get stopped regardless.
The referee Bayless did Tereshkin massive favor by stepping in and waving it off when he did because Anderson was going to drop him within moments.
“I was a little anxious in the opening round,” Anderson said. “My first pay-per-view card and all that. But I settled in and gave a great performance. I practiced what my coaches preached. On to the next one.”
“I got great work in the gym with Tyson Fury,” Anderson continued. “Iron sharpens iron. Shout out to Toledo, my home. I hope I made the fans back home proud.”
Top Rank will likely continue to bring the 21-year-old Jared Anderson along slowly rather than hurriedly throwing him in with the top 15 contenders right away.
Good options for Jared Anderson’s next fight:
- Adam Kownacki
- Martin Bakole
- Agit Kayabel
- Demsey McKean
- Zhang Zhilei
- Hughie Fury
The way Anderson looked last Saturday, and in his previous fight, he’s fighting on a higher level than Deontay Wilder right now. If Wilder could fight like Anderson with his inside game, he might have beaten Fury last Saturday night instead of being stopped in the 11th.
Anderson was recently rumored to have given Fury a lot of problems during sparring for his postponed July 24th fight with Deontay Wilder.
Although Anderson denies the rumors, it’s believed that he did hurt an out-of-shape Fury during that portion of the camp.
It’s easy to imagine Anderson crowding Fury on the inside and hitting him with powerful shots that he had no sense for.
