Golden Boy VP: Andrade Has To Get in Line For Canelo

By Miguel Rivera

WBO junior middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade (21-0, 14KOs) won't get a fight with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (43-1-1, 31KOs) so easily. On Wednesday, Andrade's team issued a press release challenging Canelo to a fight in the near future.

“I read some comments that Oscar [De La Hoya, Alvarez’s promoter] made to Lara after the fight that there is a line about 10 people deep to fight Canelo, and Lara would have to get to the back of it,” Andrade said. “What Oscar failed to mention is that line forms behind me.

“I am the WBO champion and I am undefeated. As I look down the rankings, I just defeated my mandatory Brian Rose, and Alvarez is ranked No. 2 by the WBO. He will be elevated to No. 1, and I am ready and willing to fight him for my title. I just hope he would be prepared for the beating I will put on him.”

Last Saturday night, Canelo won a twelve round split decision over Erislandy Lara in Las Vegas. Lara secured the fight by verbally attacking Canelo for several months in the media and social networks. What worked for Lara will not work for Andrade, according to Golden Boy Promotions VP Eric Gomez.

"He and 10 or 20 others want to face [Canelo]. Canelo is number one fighter in that division and everyone else has to get in line. [Andrade] is a possibility, but [talking trash and challenging him publicly] will not work [in securing a fight]," Gomez told Rodrigo Azurmendi.

Ginger punching bag lost to Trout, was exposed by Floyd, got outclassed by Erislandy. That fake ODLH's puppet is done. let him alone and move on.

Oscar mentioned the Name GGG first when answering questions about a next opponent. That means GGG is at the front of the line.
