Demetrius Andrade Stops Hloris, Calls Out Dzinziruk

MANCHESTER, N.H. - World-ranked junior middleweight Demetrius "Boo Boo" Andrade (18-0, 13 KOs) displayed his entire arsenal tonight, stopping Alexis "Hurricane" Hloris (16-4-2, 12 KOs) in the second round, headlining the 11th annual Fight To Educate Pro-Am card at Verizon Wireless Center in Manchester, New Hampshire.

The 24-year-old Andrade, a 2008 U.S. Olympian, dropped Fernandez early in the second round with a straight left and then finished the show with a right hook. Fernandez beat the count but the referee halted the action as the second round ended.

"I wouldn't say I was rusty, just cautious in the first round, feeling him out to see what he had," Andrade said after the fight. "I established my jab. I came out in the second round knowing he had trouble with my jab and left. I put some power and speed behind my punches. I showcased it (his entire arsenal); it looked good and sealed the deal.

"I want (Sergei) Dzinziruk (former WBO champion, 37-1, 27 KOs). His only loss was to the best, Sergio Martinez, and he just had a draw (Jonathan Gonzalez). His name would look good on my resume."

Andrade, fighting out of Providence (RI), is co-promoted by Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing and Banner Promotions. The slick southpaw is ranked No. 4 by the International Boxing Federation (IBF) and No. 5 by the World Boxing Organization (WBO), as well as No. 10 by the World Boxing Council (WBC) and No. 15 by the World Boxing Association (WBA).

Undefeated Vermont welterweight Chris Gilbert improved to 5-0 (4 KOs) with a win over Antonio Chaves Fernandez. Gilbert dropped Fernandez midway through the opening round, trapped Fernandez on the ropes in the fourth and ended the fight by way of technical knockout with a powerful right uppercut.

Fight To Educate, presented this year in part by Absolute Broadcasting WGAM, The Game, is a unique charity event that combines a love of sports with the vision of assisting children and seniors in need, who with fundraisers like this could be 'down for the count.' During the past 10 years, Fight To Educate has raised more than $500,000 in donations benefitting local New Hampshire non-profit organizations.

[QUOTE=The Gambler1981;12538914]Nobody in their right mind should want to face Andrade~ unless forced. Tall rangy southpaw who has an excellent jab, nobody in the history of the sport wants to face such a guy unless forced. Especially when he brings…

[QUOTE=kiaba360;12538879]Andrade is in a division that's dominated by the "names", and everyone is chasing the same guys (Cotto/Canelo/Mayweather). He has almost no chance of fighting them, and the contenders are busy fighting each other. There's very little room for Andrade…

The funny thing is what I hear about Andrade is what I heard about Andre Ward, why didn't he step up sooner, this guy sucks he is boring, when he steps up he will be nothing~ Now Andrade can only…

[QUOTE=The Gambler1981;12538764]I like them both as fighters, but the thing is it is easy to make a case for building up Wilder very slowly because he needed it. Andrade on the other hand is a very polished product, but he…
