Andrade Dominates And Retains

It wasn’t even close. In front of a hometown crowd in Providence, Rhode Island, Demetrius Andrade successfully retained his WBO Middleweight Championship with a win over Maciej Sulecki.

The fight was one-sided right from the get-go, with Andrade swinging wildly and dropping Sulecki in the opening minute. As the round came to a close, Andrade trapped Sulecki in a corner and started swinging away, though Sulecki landed a counterpunch before the bell.

Before the second, Andrade’s corner advised him to not have a brawl and Andrade heeded their words, with the second featuring lots of jabs and lots of missing. While Sulecki landed a couple of decent shots, this began a process of Andrade nearly toying with his challenger, making him miss time and time again, and sometimes making him pay with a counterpunch or a flurry. In fact, Andrade forced Sulecki back to the ropes, and had it not been for the round-ending bell, Andrade might have finished Sulecki there.

In the end, Sulecki could just get little to nothing off. In fact, he only managed to successfully land seven or less of his punches thrown in each round of this title fight, and Andrade didn’t need to do much to cruise to a victory.

Andrade swept the judges’ scorecards, with all three scoring the bout 120-107 in the WBO champion’s favor.
