Jared Anderson vs. Ryad Merhy on April 13th in Texas

Set to take place in Corpus Christi on April 13th, heavyweight sensation Jared Anderson is gearing up to step back into the ring.


Houston, TX, USA (February 17, 2024) - Jared Anderson's search for an opponent has concluded, and it's becoming clear why his upcoming challenger, Ryad Merhy, opted out of his EBU title shot.

Jared Anderson is now in training for what should be an easy assignment.

Set to take place in Texas on April 13th, heavyweight sensation Jared Anderson is gearing up to step back into the ring. Representing Top Rank, Anderson will square off against Belgium's Ryad Merhy. The showdown between Merhy, who recently secured a victory over Paris Olympic gold medalist Tony Yoka, and Anderson is scheduled to unfold in Corpus Christi.

Merhy, not long ago, found himself in contention for the EBU title, initially slated to face Tom Schwarz, a potential opponent for Anderson as well. However, Merhy declined to fight Daniel Dubois, the British fighter, for the title, shedding light on his decision.

It's evident that a bout against the undefeated Jared Anderson will likely yield more lucrative returns for Merhy compared to an EBU title clash against Daniel Dubois, who is signed with Frank Warren and has also withdrawn from EBU obligations. Anderson, boasting an impressive record of 16-0 with 15 knockouts, is poised to add another prominent name to his resume in Merhy.

In his most recent bout, Anderson triumphed over Andrii Rudenko in the fifth round, successfully defending his International titles. The 24-year-old Anderson has secured victories against former IBF champion Charles Martin and durable opponents such as Jerry Forrest, Vladimir Tereshkin, and Oleksandr Teslenko. Currently ranked at #13 in the world rankings, Anderson continues his climb at a steady pace.

All eyes will be on Corpus Christi for a sensational heavyweight doubleheader.
