LAS VEGAS – Jared Anderson continued his ascent in the heavyweight division with another quick knockout Saturday night.

The powerful prospect from Toledo, Ohio, overwhelmed Vladimir Tereshkin with pressure and right hands on the Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder undercard at T-Mobile Arena. Referee Kenny Bayless stepped between them to halt the action 2:51 into the second round of their scheduled 10-rounder.

The 6-feet-6, 256-pound Tereshkin (22-1-1, 12 KOs) was unbeaten before he encountered Anderson (10-0, 10 KOs), but the huge Russian had beaten a pretty low level of opposition overall.

The 21-year-old Anderson, who helped Fury prepare for his second and third fights with Wilder, was simply too skillful and strong for Tereshkin. The 6-feet-4, 240-pound Anderson’s victory opened the pay-per-view portion of the Fury-Wilder undercard.

A right hand by Anderson backed Tereshkin into the ropes barely 30 seconds into the second round. Anderson began hammering Tereshkin with power shots later in the second round.

Backed into Anderson’s corner, Tereshkin took several more clean right hands before he looked in Bayless’ direction for help. Bayless then stepped in to halt the action.

Anderson landed several right hands during the first round. He pressed the action and walked through the punches Tereshkin returned.
