Anderson: I want fights with Takam and Hrgovic

Jared Anderson (11-0, 11 KOs) is the big hope of the American heavyweight division and, in the opinion of many, the most interesting boxer of the younger generation. After an injury and a long rehabilitation, the almost 23-year-old athlete will return to the ring on August 27 in Tulsa, USA.

In his first speech this year, the American will meet with Milyan Rovchanin (24-2, 16 KOs). The fight is scheduled for ten rounds. And after the expected victory, "Real Big Kid" wants to get a much stronger opponent.

Anderson set his sights on Carlos Takam (39-6-1, 28 KOs) and Filip Hrgovic (14-0, 12 KOs), but both have big fights ahead of them - with Arslanbek Makhmudov (14-0, 14 KOs) and Zhang Zhilei (24 -0-1, 19 KOs) in the IBF eliminator respectively. The undefeated puncher also suggests that at the end of the year he will be able to meet the winner of the fight Luis Ortiz (33-2, 28 KOs) against Andy Ruiz Jr. (34-2, 22 KOs).

“I want to fight as often as possible and with as strong opponents as possible. Now I would like to fight against Carlos Takam or Filip Hrgovic. I also like the fight between Ortiz and Ruiz. This would give me a big promotion in the rankings and would greatly expand my fan base, ”said Anderson, who honestly admitted that his closest rival, despite a good track record, should not pose a serious threat to him.

“He has a clumsy, slightly European style. But it often remains open and is easy to get into. He is definitely not an elite boxer,” Anderson added.
