Andrade: If No Canelo, I'd Fight Golovkin in February or March!

Former world champion Demetrius Andrade (25-0, 16 KOs) has no problem with facing IBF, IBO, WBA, WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) in the first quarter of next year - if GGG is unable to reach a deal for a May 5th rematch with Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

Golovkin was in the ring back in September, when he fought to a twelve round split draw with Canelo at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The two sides are in talks for an immediate rematch, but there is far from a guarantee that a deal will be reached between the two boxers. If Golovkin is unable to secure the rematch, he is expected to fight again in the first quarter of 2018.


Andrade, a former WBO and WBA champion at 154-pounds, made his middleweight debut back in October, when he dominated undefeated Alantez Fox over twelve rounds in an HBO televised fight.

He was due to fight again in December, but the fight never got done in time. Now he wants to fight in February or March and feels that is more than enough time to prepare for a Golovkin fight.

"There were discussions about December and that got prolonged. I want to get back in the ring, I want to make things happen. Unfortunately it won’t be this year, but hopefully we can get back in the ring in February or March. If a fight with Golovkin can happen, that would give me plenty of time to put on the proper weight. We made a decision to stay at 160lbs, so now I can start building to be a full fledged middleweight. Why not have my second fight against one of the best of the weight class?," Andrade told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

Andrade had two fights in 2017 - the first time he's fought more than once in a single year since 2013. He hopes to continue his activity burst next year. 

"Every year I believe is my year, it’s just about who is willing to get in the ring with me and fight. I can’t break out unless I’m active. I think HBO with the talent that they have and the amount of fighters that they have in the weight division, they can make a lot of fights happen. This can definitely help me become that guy," Andrade said.

To be fair he wanted Canelo before now we see Canelo and Golovkin are similar levels why not chase gooovkin as well? Golovkin isn’t the boogy man any more he’s the gravy train
