Jared Anderson is never the type to look past any opponent.

There is the acknowledgement, however, that there exists competition elsewhere on a heavyweight-loaded show.

The unbeaten contender is locked in for his scheduled ten-round bout versus Ukraine’s Andrii Rudenko atop an ESPN-televised doubleheader Saturday from Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The co-feature pits Kazakhstan’s Zhon Kossobutskiy (19-0, 18KOs) and Efe Ajagba—a 2016 Olympian for Nigeria—in a heavyweight crossroads bout also scheduled for ten rounds.

“Everybody is there to do their job,,” Anderson told BoxingScene.com of the three heavyweight bouts. “Whoever looks the best gets to steal the show. I feel all (the A-sides) should perform greatly against their opponents and should show out. I feel like we’re all slightly outclassing our opponents, just our skill levels.

“This will be the test to see who hits ESPN, who looks the best. Whoever has the best performance will show out this card.”

Of the three heavyweight fights, Kossobutskiy-Ajagba is the most competitive on paper. Kossobutskiy is listed as a -210 favorite to prevail in his U.S. debut, while Ajagba is a mild +165 underdog to earn his third straight victory.

Anderson (15-0, 14KOs) is listed by bet365 as a -4000 favorite, while Rudenko (35-6, 21KOs) enters as a +1450 longshot.

Off TV preceding the ESPN+ telecast, 2020 Olympic gold medal winner, Uzbekistan’s Bakhodir Jalolov (13-0, 13KOs), knocked out Nigeria’s Onoriode Ehwarieme (20-3, 19KOs),

Saturday’s main event for Anderson comes just eight weeks after a ten-round points win over former IBF heavyweight titlist Charles Martin on July 1 in his hometown of Toledo, Ohio. The night represented a series of firsts, though most important to Anderson was that it marked his debut as a televised headliner. He tops his second straight ESPN telecast and plans to command that status moving forward.

“This is my card. That’s a statement in and of itself,” noted Anderson. “I’m here to go out, show my fight outfit, my charisma and just be myself. That’s what we’re selling here.”
