Young American heavyweight, Jared Anderson, believes he’s ‘different’ and is now ready to challenge those at the top of the division.
Anderson is an emerging contender, who is tipped by many to achieve heavyweight gold in the future.
The Ohio-born prospect extended his perfect record to fourteen knockout victories in as many fights at the weekend as he brushed aside the undefeated George Arias with ease, ending the fight in the third round.
This was Anderson’s sixth successive fight in which he won in the third round or sooner and his twelfth overall, as the 23-year-old continues to rise into contention for bigger and better fights.
In his post fight interview, Anderson confidently proclaimed that he is “the best heavyweight in the world”.
“I’m different. I’m the best heavyweight in the world. I don’t give a f**k what nobody talking about
I made that look easy man because he helped me make it look easy. He wasn’t throwing punches for real.. My jab was on point so it was an easy night.”
The American then signalled his ambition to fight the biggest names in the division.
“[I want] those top names, those top contenders. Everybody who keeps calling people out, put my name on the list now. I’m not ducking, I’m not running and you ain’t catching this smoke.”
‘Big Baby’ has sparred with the likes of Tyson Fury, so he knows what it’s like to be in with the best.
In an ageing division, with no under-thirties ranked in the Ring Magazine’s top ten, many expect Anderson to be at the forefront of the heavyweight scene in years to come, but he could be there sooner than first thought.
