Andrade: I'd Love To Showcase My Skill Against Gennady Golovkin!

Former junior middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade (25-0, 16 KOs) is looking for more gold.

And he has his sights set on the king oft he division - IBF, WBA, WBC IBO world champion Gennady Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs).

Andrade, who previously held WBO and WBA titles at 154-pounds, moved up to 160 in October and dominated Alantez Fox over twelve rounds of action.


Andrade has been calling for a fight with Golovkin for quite a while and hopes to get the opportunity to face him.

"He’s been fighting at that weight for a while now and he has almost every belt there is. I think he’s only missing the WBO belt. He’s doing a lot of things in boxing as far as making noise and making a name for himself. He’s someone I would love to get in the ring with to showcase my skill and talent and see somebody who is a special one. He’s definitely one of those guys to make that declaration with," Andrade said to On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

Golovkin was in action back in September, when he fought to a controversial twelve round draw with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. The two superstars are now in discussions for a potential rematch to take place on May 5th of next year, during Cinco De Mayo weekend.

Andrade is very confident that he possesses the necessary skills, amateur pedigree and professional experience to hang with someone like Golovkin.

"I just feel like I can do everything. I can adjust well — he can too, he’s been around for a long time in the amateur program, so I know he has a lot of experience and he wouldn’t be where is if he didn’t have that experience. I believe you have to tune in and demand and keep speaking about this fight happening so you can see and understand what the results and the differential is between Golovkin and someone like Demetrius Andrade," Andrade said.

i know this is bumped from the past, but this guy is taking a page out of the vanes or lara book by calling out fighters the second they're contractually obligated not to fight him, and to fight somebody else.
