Andrade: I'm Ready To Replace Canelo, Fight Golovkin on May 5

Philadelphia, PA /White Plains, NY - Undefeated, two-time world champion Demetrius Andrade (25-0, 16 KOs) is ready and available for a showdown with unified middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, should Canelo Alvarez not be cleared by the Nevada State Athletic Commission on April 10th for his May 5th rematch with Golovkin.

Andrade, who is ranked number 1 by the WBO in the middleweight division, feels that if Alvarez is not cleared by the commission for his recent positive test for Clenbuterol, he would be the most obvious candidate to face Golovkin.

"I am ready, willing and able to step to the plate on May 5th to fight Golovkin," stated Andrade.  "I am always in the gym, and I will start VADA testing right now.  I guarantee that I will pass all the tests. I know other fighters can't say the same thing. I am undefeated, and a two-time world champion.  Golovkin went through a period where nobody wanted to fight him.  I am that guy now.  The man nobody wants to fight.  Everyone says what does Demetrius Andrade bring to the table? Besides being the best American middleweight, and one of the top 3 middleweights in the world, everyone knows who I am, and the know how good I am. My question is to those who say that I don't bring anything to the table. What did Murray, Adama, Geale,  Monroe and Rosado bring to the table?  None of the top contenders want to fight me so I believe that if Canelo is unavailable for May 5th, I want the opportunity to face Golovkin for the unified middleweight championship of the world."

Golovkin's Promoter Tom Loeffler stated after Alvarez was temporarily suspended that his fighter will still compete on May 5th with or without Alvarez.

Like Golovkin, Andrade is also in the gym, and will be ready should he get the call for May 5th.

Andrade is promoted by Banner Promotions and Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing.

Bottom line... Andrade is a HUGE risk for gaynaddy gay 97k and it's not worth losing his belts and making nothing to go fight Saunders (I assume in the UK where both will make much more) or perhaps canelo, so…

[QUOTE=Fire4231;18643829]Absolutely, because you are a real boxing fan that recognizes a good match up on a high traffic Mexican holiday. GGG vs O’Sullivan doesn’t even make business sense and is clearly a slept for hire scenario. Thanks for being honest…
