Andrade To Golovkin: What Are You Scared Of? Pick Me For May!

Demetrius Andrade (25-0, 16 KOs) has continued to push forward with his quest to become the late-replacement opponent who fights IBF, IBO, WBA, WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) on May 5th in Las Vegas.

Golovkin is scheduled to face Canelo Alvarez in a rematch on May 5th at T-Mobile - but the Mexican superstar is currently under a temporary suspension issued by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Canelo came up positive for the banned substance clenbuterol in two separate drug tests in the month of February. He is scheduled to appear at a hearing on April 18, and many expect him to get suspended for at least six months to one year's time.

Golovkin is preparing himself with another plan of attack, by booking the Las Vegas' MGM Grand on May 5.

Several names have been kicked around to replace Canelo, with Gary "Spike" O'Sullivan being viewed as the frontrunner by some people.

Andrade believes that he's the best possible opponent who is ready to go on such short notice for May 5th.

"My name does ring bells in the boxing world and I believe I have more talent, and my excitement is better, than anyone else who can fight [Golovkin]. People don't really want to see [Golovkin] fight anyone else other than someone like me. What other top-level fighter is ready to go?," Andrade told the Los Angeles Times.

"For him to go any other direction goes to show, 'Does Triple-G really want to fight the best?' And when will the people see what they've been missing out on in Demetrius Andrade? That's where I stand. People want to see it, and they believe and know I bring excitement."

O'Sullivan was scheduled to be a part of a Golden Boy card in Las Vegas on May 4th.

According to Andrade, if Golovkin passes him over in favor of someone like O'Sullivan - the undefeated Olympian will have to seriously question the unified champion. 

"'Spike' O'Sullivan is a guy I should fight to keep my reputation going to Triple-G [Golovkin] and Canelo. Good record, keep you active, but for Triple-G to pick him would be like, 'What are you scared of?,'" Andrade said.

"You say people duck you. I believe I'll be the best guy other than Canelo. … I see how they're trying to keep it safe to go back to Canelo, but when it comes to me — I might not have all the social media and fan base — but if you put it out there that it's developing that I'm the fight between him and Triple-G, you're going to get a lot of viewers."

I would be happy with Jacobs, Charlo, Andrade, or Derev getting the May sweepstakes. Jose would all be good challengers to GGG's belt

[QUOTE=vitali1999;18638047]G has lost a step. Age is starting to show[/QUOTE] No, competition is in now so obviously he can't compete with the good opponents.

[QUOTE=ramplamp;18635722]Believe me, I'm not excited by the prospect of a fight with O'Sullivan either, but does it really make sense to fight a rangy southpaw on short notice when you've been training for Canelo for the last year? I know…
