Photos: Demetrius Andrade, Walter Kautondokwa - Face To Face

At Fenway Park on Thursday afternoon, the boxing world saw a preview of what will prove to be a fully stacked Oct. 20 Matchroom Boxing USA fight night at the TD Garden Arena with three title clashes on the main card, including headliner Demetrius Andrade against Walter Kautondokwa for the vacant WBO Middleweight Title. In a press conference, Saturday night’s fighters gathered to discuss their preparation and predictions ahead of the big night – which will be broadcasted exclusively on DAZN.

Demetrius Andrade 

“I’m confident in myself and my abilities and everything that this training camp and this training team has put me through to be prepared to fight whoever comes my way. When we get in there, we’ll make the proper adjustments that we need to get that belt.”

“I do appreciate Walter taking this last-minute. End of the day, I would have had to get into the ring with Walter. He’s here for a reason. He’s definitely not stopping this train though.”

“I know where the hunger is. I know what you need to prevail. Boston Red Sox, they’re doing a great job right now. The Patriots, Bruins, Celtics…now it’s Demetrius Andrade’s time.”

Walter Kautondokwa

“I’m really happy to be here and thank god for the opportunity that I get to fight for the world title.”

On if he can win: “Saturday, I’m going to do what I always do. The world championship is going to Namibia.”

Andrade hasn't fought in a year, can't underestimate any one at this level. I've seen this guy on Youtube and he can really punch....he's also tall and a counter puncher, so it's not a gimme.
