Baysangurov-Andrade Lands in Kiev or Odessa on July 6th

By Dmitry Mikhalchuk and Alexey Sukachev

More details are available on the upcoming WBO light middleweight championship between the reigning beltholder Zaurbek Baysangurov (28-1, 20 KOs) and WBO #2 rated undefeated American contender Demetrius Andrade (19-0, 13 KOs). The purse bid for the clash has been held tonight in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and K2 Promotions, governed by the Klitschko brothers, has come out as a winner with a $501,200 offer, outbidding a strong unified effort by both Joe DeGuarida's Star Boxing Promotions and Artie Pellulo's Banner Promotions ($401,000). Baysangurov's party will take 80% of the fee, with the other 20% going to Team Andrade

The fight between the 28-year old Russian (and a proud Chechen native) Baysangurov and a former world amateur champion (2007 Chicago) Andrade, who is also rated #3 by the IBF, #8 by the WBC and #13 by the WBA will be held on July 6 either in Kiev (the Ukrainian capital) or in the shining seaport of Odessa.

Baysangurov is coming off a huge win over capable European contender Lukas Konecny in his latest fight, while Andrade, 25, enjoyed a streak of fast knockouts in 2012 and a dominating win over Freddy Hernandez this January. It should be a great fight between the two of them.

Props to Baysangurov for taking the fight, but the belt is coming back to America on July 6th. Andrade will stop him.

Good news. :) If Baysangurov went across the Atlantic to fight Andrade, he'd need a KO to get a draw. (or a KO to get a split TD like his countryman Khabib Allakhverdiev did in his fight with Joan Guzman).
