·1 min read

Jared Anderson, perhaps America’s best heavyweight prospect, continues to roll.

The product of Toledo, Ohio, knocked out the bigger Vladimir Tereshkin in the second round on the Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder card Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Anderson has stopped all 10 of his opponents.

The 21-year-old didn’t waste any time, attacking the U.S.-based Russian with hard shots to the head and body from the opening bell to easily win the opening round.

In Round 2, he picked up where he left off, outworking and outlanding Tereshkin (22-1-1, 12 KOs). Then, Tereshkin’s back against the ropes late in the round, Anderson landed a straight right that hurt his opponent and followed with a flurry of hard shots.

Referee Kenny Bayless allowed the onslaught to continue only for a few seconds before stopping the fight.

Tereshkin was unbeaten going into the fight but hadn’t faced elite opposition. Plus, he had been out of the ring for two years.
