Miami, Florida - WBO middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade (29-0, 18 KOs) broke down and stopped Luke Keeler (17-3-1, 5 KOs) in the ninth round.

As soon as the fight began, Andrade dropped Keeler hard in the first round. Keeler stayed down on one knee, but made it up. Andrade jumped on him for the finish, but he was unable to close the show.

“I thought it was good. Luke Keeler is a warrior, a future champion. But not today, today was my day. I took him to deep waters and I sunk him. I went in there and thought I could put him out. So I took him out. I showed him I am not delusional. I got more knockdowns than I do fights, baby. I am entertaining. You gotta love it, I come to put on a show every time," Andrade said.

In the second round, Andrade was boxing smart and dropped Keeler hard once again with a big counter left. Keeler managed to survive once again. Andrade controlled the third and fourth, but he was mostly looking for the homerun shot.

Andrade got in very close and was working to the body of Keeler in the fifth. Keeler was trying hard, but he was being outworked and not landing much in the sixth and seventh. Andrade stood in close during the eight and ninth, breaking Keeler down with punches to the head and body. Keeler was rocked hard during the ninth and battered with shots until the fight was stopped.

And now Andrade wants a showdown with WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo.

“I’m not giving up on that. Eddie Hearn sent the offer and didn’t get a response. If they want to send an offer this way, we will respond. Let’s get it on, Jermall. The boogeyman is here, baby," Andrade said.
