Andrade vs. Sulecki Live Results
With possible unification of the middleweight division on his mind, Demetrius Andrade will attempt to make his second successful defense of the WBO championship tonight in front of a hometown crowd, as he takes on Maciej Sulecki.
The fight will main event a Matchroom Boxing USA card at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island.
Andrade, also a former WBO and WBA junior middleweight champion, won the WBO 160-pound title when he defeated Walter Kautondokwa in October. Andrade had been slated to challenge then-WBO champ Billy Joe Saunders, but Saunders was not licensed to fight and surrendered the WBO title after testing positive for a banned substance. Andrade successfully defended the title in January with a 12th-round stoppage of Artur Akavov.
Poland’s Sulecki was 26-0 before a loss to former WBA and IBF middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs in April 2018. Since then, Sulecki has bounced back with a second-round TKO of Jean Michel Hamilcaro in November and a unanimous decision win over Gabriel Rosado in March.
The card will also feature former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker in action against Alex Leapai and Khalid Yafai defending the WBA Super Flyweight Championship against Norbelto Jimenez.
