Demetrius Andrade wasn’t a man of many words when he spoke recently with BoxingScene.com, but he didn’t need many words to show his confidence in one thing — that he believes he will defeat Derek Ennis in their Feb. 10 fight on ESPN2’s “Friday Night Fights.”

Here are the highlights of the brief interview:

BoxingScene.com: What do you know about your upcoming opponent, Derek Ennis?

Andrade: “I know he’s 23-3. He’s going to be 23-4.”

BoxingScene.com: Where do you see yourself at in your career right now? Where do you see yourself in terms of your development?

Andrade: “I see myself at 15-0 with 10 knockouts right now. I’m taking it one fight at a time. I’m working hard.”

BoxingScene.com What do you think you need to work on?

Andrade: “We’re working on sharpening up everything. There’s always something to be worked on that needs to be fixed. There’s not one particular thing that I’m doing wrong or anything like that. We’re just sharpening up, that’s all.”

BoxingScene.com: With that in mind, what goals do you have for 2012? If we were speaking a year from now, what would you have hope to have accomplished this year?

Andrade:  “Hopefully at the end of the year, I’m 20 and 0 and I’ll be ready to take on somebody that is a household name.”

There was some criticism the last time you were on “Friday Night Fights” about the way you fought Grady Brewer, with people saying you were not very entertaining in the manner you beat him by decision. How much of that criticism was fair?

Andrade: “I pretty much told everybody that I was going to go out there and do my jab, and that’s what I did.”

BoxingScene.com: Along those lines, how important is it, then, to be crowd-pleasing against Ennis?

Andrade: “My thing is to do what I do best. Of course people are going to want to watch me, because a lot of what I do is good.”
