By Vince D’Writer: During his pro boxing career, Jared Anderson has made a number of brief appearances inside the ring, and in the co-main of the Shakur Stevenson-Shuichiro Yoshino event, Anderson scored a 3rd round TKO victory over George Arias (18-1, 7 KOs).

A day before the bout, Jared Anderson was involved in a minor car accident, but fortunately he came out of the ordeal unscathed. On the night of April 8th, Jared Anderson appeared to be healthy and ready to battle against a boxer who also came into the bout as an undefeated fighter.

As the bell sounded to start round one, Anderson held his hands by his side as he stared at Arias for a number of seconds. When Jared Anderson finally decided to throw a punch, he used a real sharp jab that he consistently landed throughout the opening round.

While Anderson spent the first round establishing the jab, George Arias spent the majority of the opening round bobbing and weaving. Arias was very inactive in regards to using his hands, as he only landed three punches in round one.

George Arias became more productive in the second round as he was focused on landing the left hook. Anderson continued to work off the jab and he closed out the round by landing a right to the head and a right to the body of his opponent.

In the third round Jared Anderson picked up the pace as he started putting his combinations together. During the final 50 seconds of round three, Anderson was dishing out punishment as he landed a series of big shots.

The troubles for Arias began when Anderson landed a left uppercut. Jared Anderson proceeded to hit his opponent with a flurry of hard shots until Arias was able to force a clinch. Anderson closed out the round by staying aggressive, and landing another flurry of punishing blows to the head and body of Arias.

As a result of absorbing a barrage of punches, George Arias walked back to his corner on wobbled legs. He pleaded with his cornermen to allow him to fight another round, but his plea was unsuccessful as his coach Leon Washington decided to put a halt to the contest.

The 23-year-old Jared Anderson (14-0, 14 KOs) remained undefeated as he had his routine abbreviated night of work. Through his fourteen fights as a pro, Anderson has yet to box beyond the sixth round. He made things look easy against Arias, and during his post-fight interview, he explained why.

“I’m different, I’m nice. I’m the best heavyweight in the world. I don’t give a f*** what nobody is talking about, you hear me? I made that look easy man, because he helped me make it look easy. He wasn’t throwing punches for real. I kept my defense tight. My jab was on point. It was an easy night.”

George Arias was supposed to be a step up bout for the 6-foot-4, 247-pound Anderson, but it seems like in order to get tested, Anderson needs to go up another level. Currently, Jared Anderson is ranked 9th by the WBO, and he wants to step in the ring with all of the top fighters in the heavyweight division.

“Those top names, those top contenders, everybody who keep calling people out, put my name on the list now. I’m not ducking, I’m not running, and you’re gonna catch this smoke.”
