    What does Andrade gain from going up to 168? Canelo didn't face him at 160, so chasing him would be a lost cause.

    I don't see Andrade avoiding Zhanibek. If he loses the MW belt, he loses any leverage he currently has. It seems like a stupid risk to take.

      Why would they mandate a guy with only 11 pro fights and rank #7 as a mandatory?

        He's ranked WBO #2 and will be elevated to #1 now.

          If it were the IBF I bet they'd get dropped and have to fight some sort of eliminator but these other ORG just bend the rules to appease certain promoters that line their pockets

            The Williams fight was 8 months ago and WBO champions have 9 months to make a mandatory defense.

              What does that matter? Munguia is ranked high in the other orgs too. He’s inevitably going for any of those belts. Lol

                I know, I misspoke on the mandatory unification. My thing is, what is Andrade doing to get a unification bout? He could petition for one. Has he contacted the champions that he's calling out; Golovkin, Canelo or Charlo? Or is he just talking shit during his post-fight interviews? I find it hard to believe that these champs are ducking him as he suggests.
                They officialy asked the WBC for a mando against Charlo last week

                  This is the equivalent of watching Ray Allen hitting 2 free throws to win the game & somebody saying well "it's Ray Allen" it's not like he was going to miss anyway.

                    Good to hear. Do you have a link to reference?

                      Well, he keeps saying that no one wants to fight him. If he goes to the sanctioning body and asks for approval for a unification bout, he can use that as ammo to pressure the champs he claims are ducking him. Otherwise, Boo Boo looks like he's full of Poo Poo.
