Sometimes one moment from a fight can completely overshadow an entire performance in the ring. Last Saturday night was one of those nights for Jared “Big Baby” Anderson.
Anderson was able to control the tempo of the fight and batter Kingsley Ibeh throughout the fight but it was a left hook in the sixth round that did Ibeh in. Prior to that Ibeh seemed uneasy in the ring and it was only a matter of time to see if he could survive the fight and give Anderson a test or would Anderson get and overcome the challenge he was looking for.
Anderson has a ton of potential. His willingness to take on everyone will be a valuable asset as it will help him improve and build a name for himself. He can go a long way in the sport if he continues his current path and Bob Arum believes he has a future Heavyweight Champion in Anderson.
“As I said before the fights last night, I believe Jared Anderson is a future Heavyweight world champion,” Tweeted Arum. “He showed why once again, this time for all to see on the ESPN stage. Well done.”
