Andrade Wants Canelo Or GGG In 2019
Following his win of the WBO middleweight title in October, Demetrius Andrade is looking squarely towards Canelo Alvarez for a showdown in 2019.
Andrade, who defeated replacement opponent Walter Kautondokwo at TD Garden, is set for a voluntary defense in January, but his father and trainer Paul, claims it’s time for Alvarez to stop ducking his son.
“We’ve offered to fight Canelo so many times that it’s just a big duck,” said Paul Andradein a report filed by Boxing Scene
“Of course we want to fight Canelo. Most guys want him for the big payday, but we want to fight him, so we can whip his ass. Canelo didn’t want to fight us in the past, but, now, they should make him fight us.”
“Canelo won’t be able to handle ‘Boo Boo,” said Andrade of Alvarez, who owns the WBC, WBA, Ring, and lineal middleweight titles. “Lara and Trout don’t have the power of ‘Boo Boo,’ whose speed, movement and ring savvy will be too much for Canelo.”
Andrade is also interested in being the first fight back for Gennady Golovkin, who has decided to wait until 2019 to return to the ring.
“When we wanted to fight Triple-G, he went with Vanes Martirosyan. We’ll fight either Triple-G or Canelo because we wanna whip that ass,” said Paul Andrade.
“When we say we want to fight anybody, that’s exactly what we mean. In fact, maybe we should changed [sic] Demetrius’ name to ‘Anybody.’”
