Andrade To Canelo: Take Oscar's Panties Off & Fight Me!

Demetrius Andrade understandably didn’t take kindly to Canelo Alvarez demeaning him during a conference call Thursday.

Alvarez criticized the unbeaten WBO middleweight champion’s level of competition and called him “very boring” when asked during that conference call about boxing Andrade. It didn’t take Andrade long to fire back at Alvarez through his Twitter account Thursday.

Andrade blasted Alvarez for ducking him, and mocked the Mexican superstar and his promoter, Oscar De La Hoya.

“@Canelo Stop talking out ya ass … If u don’t believe I’m a challenge u would have unified w/ me in September for undisputed!,” Andrade stated on Twitter. “Get @Oscar De La Hoya panties off and grow some cajones! You can’t [duck] forever..Put ya big boy gloves on and fight me.”

Andrade’s acerbic response came just a couple hours after Alvarez dismissed him as a potential opponent (https://www.boxingscene.com/canelo-andrade-fought-anybody-hes-very-boring--143274). The Providence, Rhode Island, native referred to Alvarez not fighting him September 14 in Las Vegas, the original date on which Alvarez was supposed to fight.

He’ll return to the ring November 2, when Alvarez (52-1-2, 35 KOs) will move up two divisions to challenge WBO light heavyweight champ Sergey Kovalev (34-3-1, 29 KOs) at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Had Alvarez agreed to face Andrade on September 14, their fight, for all intents and purposes, would’ve determined boxing’s undisputed middleweight champion.

When Alvarez still was considering fighting on that date, he held the IBF and WBA middleweight titles. He also is the WBC’s “franchise” middleweight champion, and never lost the WBC belt in the ring.

Regardless, the 29-year-old Alvarez doesn’t seem interested in squaring off against Andrade (28-0, 17 KOs), a 6-feet-1 southpaw who has held world titles at 154 and 160 pounds.

“He hasn’t fought with anyone,” Alvarez said through a translator. “He hasn’t fought against anybody. And he’s also boring, very boring. Maybe he’s a good fighter, but he’s a boring fighter. And at the end of the day, when there’s a boring fight, people are going to blame me. I like fights where there’s action, where the people can enjoy a good show. That’s very important for me. But also, he doesn’t represent a challenge for me, because he hasn’t fought against anybody.”

[QUOTE=turnedup;20123713]Now it’s financially motivated, did he or did he not choose not to fight him? The answer is no, fk the financials. Sergio was fighting on cable networks and wasn’t Floyd...he was going to make the same amount of money…
