Andrade-Charlo Falls Out From December 13 Card

By Rick Reeno

Multiple sources with knowledge of the details have confirmed to that WBO junior middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade (21-0, 14KOs) will not defend his title against Jermell Charlo (24-0, 11KOs) on Showtime's December 13th event at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Based on what BoxingScene was told, there were some financial details that had to be worked out with Andrade. Additionally, Andrade's wife is giving birth around that time period and he wanted to be by her side.

There has been some talk of Andrade-Charlo being pushed back to either January 10 or January 17, but BoxingScene has been made to understand that HBO has a first and last for Andrade's next fight, so nothing is set in stone that Andrade's return will land on Showtime.

Still scheduled for that December Showtime card, is Amir Khan facing Devon Alexander, Keith Thurman battling Leonard Bundu, and also former champions Abner Mares, Victor Ortiz and Beibut Shumenov will be featured in separate fights.

On the same night in Las Vegas, about a mile down the road at the Cosmopolitan Hotel & Casino, HBO will have a televised tripleheader featuring Timothy Bradley vs. Diego Chaves in the main event, Andy Lee facing Matt Korobov for the WBO 160-pound title and Jose Benavidez taking on Mauricio Herrera for the WBA interim-140 pound belt.

Is Charlo still gonna fight someone else on this night? The article said it might just be moved to January 10 or 17. But the article also said HBO has dibs on Andrade next match. Charlo is with Haymon and…

If Andrade thinks he's got a bunch of Brian Rose's lined up for him on HBO he better think again. He's going to start getting matched tough and it won't be for the money he thinks.

This isn't a surprise. Saw a video a few months ago where he was saying that he wouldn't fight Charlo. Was surprised that it was still in the works. Very disappointing!
