LAS VEGAS — Jared Anderson chalked up another knockout on Saturday in a battle of unbeaten boxers.

The Toledo boxer upped his record to 10-0, all by knockout, by defeating Vladimir Tereshkin via technical knockout in the second round.

“I was a little anxious in the opening round, my first pay-per-view card and all that.” Anderson said. “But I settled in and gave a great performance. I practiced what my coaches preached. On to the next one.”

Late in the second round, Anderson backed Tereshkin into a corner and landed a powerful right hand, followed by a left-right combination -— prompting the official to wave off the fight at the 2:51 mark.

Anderson dominated the entire fight, landing 51 of his 120 punches (43 percent) to Tereshkin’s 24-of-127 (19 percent) according to CompuBox. Anderson also hit on 50 percent (42-of-84) of his power punches and 25 percent (9-of-36) of his jabs.

Tereshkin, of Russia, fell to 22-1-1 in his first fight since 2019.

Anderson was fighting an undercard bout ahead of the highly-anticipated main event of Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder.

“I got great work in the gym with Tyson Fury. Iron sharpens iron,” Anderson said. “Shout out to Toledo, my home. I hope I made the fans back home proud.”
