Andrade-Sulecki Set For June 29th
While three middleweight titles will be unified on Saturday night, one more will be on the line on June 29th, as Demetrius Andrade will return to Rhode Island to take on Maciej Sulecki.
Reported on Tuesday by Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles times, Andrade will defend his WBO title against Sulecki at the Dunkin Donuts arena in Providence, Rhode Island, marking Andrade’s second defense since winning the then vacant title in 2018 against Walter Kautondokwa.

With a fight against the winner of Daniel Jacobs and Canelo Alvarez dangling in the balance, Andrade faces former Jacobs’ opponent Sulecki, who gained the title shot defeating Gabriel Rosado in a title eliminator in March of 2019.
Sulecki was almost pulled from the fight due to a hand injury, but has been cleared to face Andrade for the title.
