21-year-old heavyweight knockout artist Jared “The Real Big Baby” Anderson (8-0, 8 KOs) looked like he was going the distance for the first time against Kingsley Ibeh (5-1-1, 4 KOs) on Saturday night inside the Bubble at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. That was until he finally laid out Ibeh with under a minute left in the fight. A left hook ended it at 2:19 of the sixth round.
“We will keep fighting prospects and people who say they can’t be beat,” stated Anderson. “I am here to fight the best. Since everyone wants it, why not give it to them? I wanted the Ibeh fight because I saw him push many prospects. The knockout came, and I made a statement.”
Featherweight Adam “BluNose” Lopez (15-2, 6 KOs) took a ten round majority decision over Jason “El Alacrancito” Sanchez (15-3, 8 KOs). Close fight. Scores were 95-95, 97-93, 96-94 for Lopez, who retained his NABF belt.
