Andrade sent Kautondokwa to the canvas again in the third with an overhand left that landed on the top of his opponent's head. The knockdown followed Kautondokwa's first significant offense of the fight, three punches to the body.

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.
