Demetrius Andrade has a world title in the junior-middleweight division — which he won against Vanes Martirosyan last year and defended against Brian Rose this past June — but he doesn’t yet have the star status of others at or around 154 pounds.

“I want the best,” he told BoxingScene.com on July 26 in Madison Square Garden, where he’d just watched middleweight titleholder Gennady Golovkin top Daniel Geale. “Whoever says they’re the best should fight me. If I ain’t the best, then they should be able to walk through me.”

But without the leverage, Andrade needs a way to get them to face him.

“I’ma just keep talking shit, keep being me, being a comedian and at the same time respectful,” he said. “I’m here. This is what I’ve been doing all my life. This is a job, a career, and I’m trying to be the best. Them scary-ass boys need to come to fight me.”

He named Miguel Cotto, Canelo Alvarez and Floyd Mayweather specifically. Of Mayweather: “He got two belts at my weight class. He either got to fight at 154 or give them up, because you’re in my way, brother. What are you going to do with them? I need them,” he said. “Either give up the belts so I can go ahead on my way and live my life, too, or come to 154 and fight me.”

[QUOTE=dinero fan]Andrade is a good boxer but really wat has he done to prove he is worthy of facing tbe.[/QUOTE] He doesn't want to necessarily. He wants to unify titles and his resume. But he can't do that when you have a guy holding one of the titles and not facing any of the top contenders...

Andrade has the right attitude. These dudes are shook, afraid of the boo-boo-boogie man

[QUOTE=bojangles1987]Get real, man.[/QUOTE] I take this back. Floyd Mayweather wants to call himself a junior middleweight champion? He needs to defend his championship against junior middleweights. Fight Andrade.

[QUOTE=Mr. Punch-Out!!]Yeah, really. I mean, what's wrong with wanting to fight one of the best names out there? That's not anything to hate about. Everybody want a shot at the champ. Plus, he has a point; if Floyd has a title at 154, then he should be willing to defend at that weight or vacate i...
