Demetrius Andrade Willing To Move To 160 For David Lemieux

By Victor Salazar

New York - Finding it hard to secure fights in the 154 pound division, Demetrius Andrade (24-0, 16 KO’s) is more than willing to throw his name in the hat of boxers who are open to invading the middleweight division.

Andrade was a viewing spectator this past Saturday at the Broner-Garcia fight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and hinted that if he wanted to move up, it had to be against a big name that would put him in front of the food chain. Andrade feels that a fight with former IBF world champion David Lemieux (38-3, 33 KO’s) would be perfect.

“If I had to choose, I’d like to get in there with David Lemieux,” Andrade told BoxingScene.com. "I don’t mind taking a tune-up but in order for me to get bigger fights, it has to be someone like David Lemieux. He’ll get me in front of the food chain.”

Although Lemieux has a few defeats on his record, his fights have been televised by HBO and Andrade feels that a victory over Lemieux could have him in the conversation for either Gennady Golovkin (37-0, 33 KO’s) or Canelo Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KO’s).

“David (Lemieux) has a few losses but as far what’s right behind GGG and Canelo, its David Lemieux,” said Andrade. “He can get you there faster than anyone else.”

The path that Andrade is trying to take is the HBO route. However, should he head the Showtime route, he would most likely encounter a fight with his friend Danny Jacobs (32-2, 29 KO’s). However he feels the pot has to be sweet enough for a fight with Jacobs.

“The money got to be all the way right for a Danny Jacobs fight. I grew up with him, I want to see both of us succeed because he is my brother make a whole lot of money before I fight him.”

“I think that David Lemieux will put me in front of GGG and Canelo in terms of HBO. We’re talking the HBO side. If I want to go to Showtime, I probably have to fight a Peter Quillin before I get a fight with Danny.”

THAT would be a great fight! HBO boxing is on the decline though. Hope it happens.

So he wants Lemieux, but Lemule is keeping an eye on Cotto. Any second choice for Andrayde? Or he'd rather just rot in obscurity?

[QUOTE=JakeTheBoxer;17924831]Ask him, why he moved to 140 to fight Broner instead of fighting for his own title at 135.[/QUOTE] I'm asking you since your the one who said it. Mikey said before and after the Broner fight that he'll move…
