Jared Anderson Set to Keep Building

As the date for Jared Anderson vs Andriy Rudenko approaches, expectations are high for Anderson's performance.


The buzz surrounding Jared Anderson continues to grow as the 23-year-old American heavyweight from Toledo, Ohio, gears up for his upcoming bout. Dubbed as potentially "America's next great heavyweight boxer," Anderson carries the weight of high expectations on his shoulders, a challenge only a select few can navigate successfully.

With fewer than 20 professional fights under his belt, "The Real Big Baby" made his pro debut on October 26, 2019, and has since been leaving a trail of knockouts in his wake, boasting an impressive 93% knockout percentage. A showman at heart, Anderson thrives under the spotlight, making each of his fights a must-watch spectacle.

As the anticipation for the Jared Anderson vs Andriy Rudenko showdown builds, it's worth delving into what sets Anderson apart in the realm of heavyweight boxing.

Physically imposing and athletically gifted, Anderson stands out with his raw talent and athleticism, qualities that set him apart in a division dominated by power. Fresh off his most challenging bout to date against former IBF heavyweight champion Charles Martin, Anderson demonstrated his mettle by securing a unanimous decision victory in the 10-round clash.

The fight against Charles Martin highlighted Anderson's ability to adapt and overcome adversity. Despite facing a formidable opponent who exposed some of his vulnerabilities, Anderson made crucial adjustments during the bout, eventually dropping Martin in the third round. The fight went the full distance, putting an end to Anderson's remarkable fourteen-fight knockout streak.

Reflecting on his performance, Anderson acknowledges room for improvement. "It was some things outside of the ring I felt like I could have done better," he told, humbly analyzing his performance.

Confident in his growth as a fighter, Anderson is well aware of his potential to captivate fans with his exciting style in the heavyweight division.

As the date for Jared Anderson vs Andriy Rudenko approaches, expectations are high for Anderson's performance. His opponent, Andriy Rudenko, a 39-year-old Ukrainian journeyman, steps onto American soil for the first time. With a record of 35-6 (21 KOs), Rudenko faced a tune-up fight in January 2023, securing a second-round knockout against a low-level opponent.

While Rudenko has more professional experience, he faces a younger, more active, and powerful opponent in Anderson. The match presents an opportunity for Anderson to showcase his skills and build upon his recent successes.

Promoted by Bob Arum and Top Rank Promotions, Anderson's career trajectory has been fast-paced, geared toward gaining experience and honing his skills for a potential shot at a world championship. While his next bout against Rudenko may be a step down in competition, it serves as a crucial benchmark to gauge Anderson's progress and readiness for higher-level challenges.

As August 26, 2023 approaches, the boxing world awaits Jared Anderson's next chapter. With the potential for a new knockout streak to begin, fans can expect fireworks as Anderson steps into the ring once again, ready to make his mark in the heavyweight division.
