Jared Anderson vs Ryad Merhy headlines a Top Rank Heavyweight Double Header in April. Ajagba vs Vianello also appears on the bill in Texas taking place on 13 April 2024.

Jared Anderson vs Ryad Merhy

Unbeaten American Heavyweight Jared Anderson (16-0) steps up his competition as he faces seasoned Crusierweight turned Heavyweight Ryad Merhy (32-2).

Anderson is coming off a busy 2023 where he recorded three victories. Big Baby started his year by defeating Georgie Arias via RTD to capture the WBC USA Heavyweight championship. This added to his already held WBO International Heavyweight belt.

Anderson was able to retain his title in April over former Heavyweight champion Charles Martin, scoring a knockdown and winning via Unanimous Decision.

Less than two months later, Jared Anderson had a third bout in 2023 where he defeated Andrii Rudenko via TKO to retain his Championships.

Ryad Merhy is a former two-time WBA Cruiserweight champion. Merhy defeated Zhaoxin Zhang to capture the title but moved up to Heavyweight after the victory.

Merhy scored a victory over journeyman opposition before facing Kevin Lerena. Merhy travelled to South Africa to face Kevin Lerena, losing via Unanimous Decision in his first major Heavyweight contest.

Following the second defeat of his career, Merhy travelled to Paris to face Olympic gold medallist Tony Yoka, picking up a shock victory via Split Decision.

Efe Ajagba vs Guido Vianello

The other part of the Heavyweight Double Header sees Efe Ajagba vs Guido Vianello.

Efe Ajagba (19-1-1) has rebuilt from his defeat to Frank Sanchez with four successive victories. Ajagba picked up a TKO over Joseph Goodall in his last bout and managed to beat Zhan Kossobutskiy via DQ in 2023.

Guido Vianello (12-1-1) takes a huge step up in class when he meets Ajagba. Vianello has already scored a TKO over Moses Johnson in round 1 this year, but was stopped by Jonathan Rice on a cut last January.

Rest of the Anderson Merhy card

Three-time World championship challenger Robson Conceicao (17-2-1) returns from a Majority Draw Emanuel Navarrete. Conceicao is undefeated outside of World title bouts and competes in a 8 rounder against Jose Ivan Guardado Ortiz (15-1-1).

Abdullah Mason (12-0) is in action against Ronal Ron (14-5). Mason has recorded 10 KO’s from his first 12 bouts and will likely be targeting another stoppage in his 8 round bout.
