Jarred Anderson dominates Jerry Forrest after securing 2nd round knockout

After junior welterweight contender Teo Lopez won his eliminator for the WBC title on Saturday night, heavyweight contender Jared Anderson destroyed Jerry Forrest in New York.

Anderson (13-0, 13 KOs) maintained his perfect knockout record with a second-round TKO victory over Jerry Forrest (26-6-2, 20 KOs).

Anderson won the WBO International and WBC Silver USNBC titles with a dominant performance before taking on British opponents Dillian Whyte and Daniel Dubois.

"Like my corner said, once I get hit it's a whole different ballgame. I switch up everything. My mindset. How I fight. Everything. I try to come in cool and calm," said Anderson.

"I see everybody kind of was expecting him to go out early. I didn't want that. I did want to get all the way warmed up. But once he did hit me, as ya'll see, something flipped, and all I saw was red.

"The 114 punches came and we picked it up.

"I learned to keep my composure even earlier. It shouldn't have to take me to get hit for me to be able to do that. But everything was alright once I started to adjust myself and get my feet up under me. I have been kind of off for a little second, but I definitely think I came back and made it better."
