Kautondokwa, 32, was a replacement for Billy Joe Saunders. Saunders tested positive for oxilofrine, a stimulant, in a drug test administered by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency. The WBO stripped Saunders of his title after the Massachusetts State Athletic Commission declined to give him a license in a hearing on Oct. 9.

Andrade had that belt before at 154. He's just not acting like a newbie

[QUOTE=sammybee;19212603]Saunders should be giving an opportunity to fight for the belt.[/QUOTE] The WBO is likely going to suspend him for 6 months. So not any time soon.
