Along Sean Jones: Demetrius Andrade says he no longer intends to focus on fighting Canelo Alvarez, instead targeting the super-middleweight big three of Caleb Plant, Jermall Charlo and David Benavidez.
Andrade is willing to run the gauntlet on Showtime’s 168 to pick up the fights he missed when he was fighting on DAZN.
“fucking canelo. Came for showtime.Charlo, Plant and Benavidez Asked about his interest in fighting Canelo Alvarez after Saturday’s bout with Demond Nicholson, Demetrius Andrade told Fighthype:
“they [Premier Boxing Champions] I have a fighter that I want to join. I’ve tried it with DAZN, Jaime Munguia, Billy Joe, and GGG. The list goes on. I was over there I went to everyone’s door and nothing happened.
“this [PBC] It’s the best place and we also want to create great boxing. They got Plant vs. Benavidez. It’s a great matchup. It’s right to come here and let Charlo fight here. It is suitable not only for sports, but also for yourself.
“Everyone is tough right now. They are all top-level fighters, so each one is tough.
“I think it’s because my right foot and right hand are lead hands,” Andrade said when asked why top fighters don’t want to face him. In other words, they don’t want to fight him because he’s a southpaw.
“I’m here to fight. Let’s make it happen. I knocked on everyone’s door, brother. I went to the press conference for GGG. Or lose or draw, let’s make these fights happen because these are the best fights to make and wanting to be part of making the best fights in the sport is what i want to do.
“Like I said, win, lose or draw, I want to be a part of it. I want to know what it is. Rivalry is crazy.
“We’ve been working on it for years. It’s like a real rivalry out there. Me and him [Jermall Charlo]. Right in front of you. “Oh my god, motherfucker.” That’s when we look at each other.
“Nothing but respect for them and their families, but let’s take care of what you talk about. You talk a lot of shit and you think you’re a big bad wolf.” See, who else calls them like I call them?
“What’s the situation? I’m here. I definitely want a blockbuster.
154 The undisputed kid was the first tangle. Lots of bull s**t, yeah. It will get higher and attract more attention.
“I’ve been out of the ring for 15, 16 months. We’re all going through these stages,” Demetrius said of Jermour. I hope. Let’s make this happen,” said Andrasde.
