Demetrius Andrade captured the WBO belt last year when he defeated Vanes Martirosyan and has put the 154lb division on alert. Afterwards he let the fans and media know that he wanted to unify the belts but it seems like no one is trying to call him out or fight him for his piece of the WBO Championship belt. The only guy is a mandatory challenger Brian Rose who is from overseas. Demetrius wants the winner of Carlos Molina vs Jermall Charlo. "I've been called Carlos Molina out", stated Andrade.
Demetrius said, "I hear Floyd Mayweather talking about bringing boxing back to Atlanta. Tell Floyd ATL is my home, I run that area, we do it for the ATL. Floyd Mayweather can get it too. I'm trying to unify these belts. Tell Oscar De La Hoya he can get it too, I'd spank him also." Andrade is willing to fight anyone at the 154lb division. I asked him about Canelo or the Angulo winner and he said, "They ALL can get it. I'm the WBO Champion, come fight me, I don't run from anyone."
Andrade let me know that he's here to take over the Jr. Middleweight division and he put Mayweather, Canelo, Angulo, Molina, Jermall Charlo, and anyone else on high alert. Demetrius is undefeated in 20 bouts and 13 are by stoppage. Demetrius and Floyd Mayweather are the only two 154lbs Champions that are undefeated. Is Floyd willing to throw Demetrius in the pool for a Sept clash on PPV? We will find out soon enough.
