Andrade: I Did Very Well in 160 Debut, I'll Fight Anybody!

Two-Time undefeated world champion Demetrius Andrade made a successful debut as a middleweight by winning a dominant 12-round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Alantez Fox at The Turning Stone Resort Casino. Photo by Emily Harney.

The bout was the co-feature bout of an HBO Boxing After Dark® tripleheader

In round one, Andrade rocked Fox with a blistering straight left hand.  Fox was wobbled badly, and Andrade jumped on Fox.  After landing several hard follow up shots, Fox was able to hold on and get out of the first frame.  Andrade was dominant as he continued to land swift combinations at will.  That opening flurry caused Fox to engage very sporadically during the fight.

In round seven, Fox was awarded a dubious knockdown when Andrade slipped on the wet canvas.  Television replays showed that Fox did not even land a punch during that exchange.

That was the only blemish for Andrade, as he controlled the action by using his superior skills on both the inside and landing crisp and sharp punches on the outside and he cruised home to the victory.  Compubox punch stats showed the dominance of Andrade as he outlanded Fox 158-52 over the 12-round bout with Andrade winning the power shots by a 132-29 margin.

Those stats were evident in the scoring as Andrade of Providence, Rhode Island won by scores of 118-110, 118-109, and 116-111 to push his perfect mark to 25-0.

Fox loses for the first time, and the native of Forestville, Maryland is now 23-1-1.

"I did what I had to do in there.  I think I did very well, but I will look at the fight and then give myself a grade after that," said Andrade.

"I did everything I needed to do.  It was a great experience to go 12 rounds at this weight.  Fox is a tough kid, and after I hurt him early in the first round, he recovered well.  He wasn't sloppy and he knew how to survive, so that is why I did not finish him."

"I took my time and I needed the 12 rounds.  I knew I could hurt him and had the pop to do it."

"I will go back and work on putting a little more pop on my punches and I feel that I can do a lot of damage."

"He was a big test.  Nobody would step up and face him, and I did.  This is why I am the best, because I am willing to face anybody.  Fox is a good fighter and he will do damage down the line, but like I told everybody before the fight, Look out It's me again!."
