The Andrade - Fox bout is promoted by Banner Promotions, Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing and A-Team Promotions, in association with DiBella Entertainment.

Andrade of Providence, Rhode Island was a 2008 United Sates Olympian, and the 2007 World Amateur Champion.  His success has continued in the professional ranks, as he has a perfect professional resume with a record of 24-0 with 16 knockouts. 

Andrade, 29 years-old captured the WBO World Junior Middleweight crown with a 12-round split decision over fellow Olympian and previously undefeated Vanes Martirosyan on November 9, 2013.  Andrade defended the title with a sensational 7th round stoppage of mandatory challenger Brian Rose.

On March 11, 2017, Andrade became a two-time world champion when he won the WBA World Junior Middleweight Championship with a 12-round split decision over reigning champion Jack Culcay in Ludwigshafen, Germany.

Fox of Forestville, Maryland has a undefeated mark of 23-0-1 with 11 knockouts. 

The 25 year-old Fox stands 6'4", and he has used that height to score impressive victories over Kenneth McNeil, Ronald Montes, Paul Valenzuela Jr., and previously undefeated Patrick Day.

"First of all I need to thank HBO, and especially Peter Nelson for giving me this tremendous opportunity.  Thanks to him, I get a chance to not only have a great fight on October 21st, but I also get to show my fans on prime time that I'm the best fighter in the junior middleweight and now the middleweight division, "said Andrade.

"I can't wait for the chance to fight more often and against the very best and thanks to HBO I finally have that chance! And I'm looking forward to giving my fans a great performance and I'm going to show them how much I appreciate their support by giving them a great show!" 
 
"The Olympics were ten years ago.  He is not the same fighter.  I don't see anything that he will do that can put a loss on my record.  I am going on HBO to put on a boxing exhibition," said Fox.

"I am very happy for Demetrius to be back in the ring on HBO.  There are a lot of compelling fights that could take place on HBO for Demetrius' future career," said Artie Pelullo, President of Banner Promotions.

"We are very pleased to have Demetrius back in the ring on HBO," said Joe DeGuardia, President of Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing.  "I have always felt that Demetrius is one of the best fighters in the world, and I feel he has a very bright future."

"Alantez Fox is a tall, rangy, powerful, and undefeated middleweight contender," said Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. "Boo Boo Andrade is a great fighter, but we believe that Fox is up to the challenge."

Boo Boo is a good fighter but I don't think he is or will be the best fighter at 160.
