Undefeated heavyweight prospect Jared “The Real Big Baby” Anderson will take on nine-year pro Rodney Hernandez September 5 at the MGM Grand Conference Center in Las Vegas. The long-awaited bout is Anderson’s third “Bubble” appearance.

In an official statement, Jared Anderson says that he’s “made his home in the ‘Bubble’ this summer.” “I’ve enjoyed coming to Las Vegas and putting on a heavyweight show for the fans. I don’t know too much about Rodney Hernandez, but I know he’s been in there with a lot of top guys and and usually goes rounds,” the 6’4″, 240 pound heavyweight adds.

“I can’t wait for this one. Top Rank keeps lining these guys up, and I’m knocking them out.”
