Demetrius Andrade: Now I'm at 160, Canelo Cannot Run From This!

Undefeated Demetrius Andrade (25-0, 16 KOs) has warned Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo' Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) that he can run - but he can't hide.

Andrade has been gunning for a fight with Canelo since the two of them were competing at junior middleweight.

Back October, Andrade made his official debut in the middleweight division and dominated Alantex Fox over twelve rounds.


It was also the first bout for Andrade of an HBO multi-fight agreement. Canelo also has an exclusive contract with HBO - which now prevents any network issues in matching them.

Andrade feels that with contract deals on the same network, and fighting in the same division, there is nothing to prevent them from facing each other in the future.

"Canelo Alvarez who is popular and was at the 154lb weight division. I was knocking on his door numerous times trying to make a fight happen with him and he kept staring different ways. Now he’s at the 160lb weight class as I am, so he cannot run from this, eventually it’s going to happen and the best and the strongest will survive," Andrade told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

Andrade believes Canelo ducked him when the two boxers were at junior middleweight. The WBO stripped Andrade of his belt for inactivity and he was poised to get a title shot at newly crowned champion Liam Smith.

But the WBO allowed Canelo to skip over Andrade, and fight Smith for the title.

After Canelo knocked Smith out, he had little interest in facing Andrade.

"Yeah definitely [he ducked me], and people will hear me say that when I had the WBO Jr Middleweight title, he was supposed to be my mandatory and they somehow took him from being number one and put him somewhere else. I ended up not fighting Canelo Alvarez because I had some politics of boxing business," Andrade said.

"I got my belt stripped from me because of lack of activity and all of the sudden here comes Canelo Alvarez fighting for the belt that I got stripped of, but he didn’t want to fight me when I had it. That’s a good example for people to understand."

Canelo is returning on May 5th. The frontrunner to face him is IBF, IBO, WBC, WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin - who fought Canelo to a controversial draw in September.

So what you are saying is that for three or four weeks after his last fight, his promotional/managerial team were negotiating a deal for him (it’s been seven weeks now) to fight in the second weekend in December ( on…

[QUOTE=ThomasJK;18266383]Instead of talking smack about Canelo running from a potential fight with him, I’d like to hear “his side of the story” regarding his withdrawal from the Devrechenko fight that has been I. The works for the past seven weeks.…

[QUOTE=Sid-Knee;18266516]Surprised people aren't saying it's the other way round and claiming Canelo is the one ducking. Oh and that he's worth 50/50 split of the money. Big shock considering the retards on this forum.[/QUOTE] They are conflicted since they adopted…
