Sulecki: Andrade is Weak Middleweight, Jacobs is Much Better

Maciej Sulecki has branded Demetrius Andrade as one of the ‘weakest Middleweights’ as he plots to rip the WBO World title from him at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island on Saturday June 29, live on DAZN in the US and on Sky Sports in the UK.

Sulecki (28-1 11 KOs) travels to the champion’s backyard for his first World title challenge as Andrade (27-0 17 KOs) puts his strap on the line for the second time.

The Pole landed the clash having seen off Gabriel Rosado in a wild clash for the WBO International title in Philadelphia in March, where he floored Rosado in the first and eighth rounds but then hit the canvas twice in the ninth before winning on points after ten.

Sulecki, who previously went the distance with former two-time World ruler Daniel Jacobs, showed he has grit as well as talent in that battle with Rosado, and the 30 year old believes that he’s the first real fighter that Andrade has faced and that the champion is in for a shock next weekend.

“I am very happy I got this fight,” said Sulecki. “Daniel Jacobs was much better than Andrade – Andrade's one of the weakest Middleweights out there in my eyes. I know for sure that I'm going to put on a great fight and show it off. I know he's a great fighter but he hasn't fought anybody. He's fought Jack Culcay who is no one, and I will show the world who I am and what I can do inside that ring.

“The Rosado fight was going to plan until the 8th round, after that things changed. It was a good learning experience and now especially since I'm fighting the champion next. I watched the fight at home and I said to myself 'What an idiot. What did I do?’ It was a very good lesson, it was two rounds that made me a better man.

“I believe the fans will come out for this fight. I remember people like Adamek, who had a great following behind them. That's what I want too, I want that good feeling.

“It's only talk in the press conferences and on social media, on fight night, the fists will do the talking. Talk is cheap. He's World champion and he's very good so he's confident, but I am very confident too and I hope he's ready for what I am bringing to the ring as he's never fought anyone like me.”

Sulecki’s clash with Andrade is part of a blockbuster night of action as unbeaten Briton Kal Yafai puts his WBA Super-Flyweight title against mandatory challenger Norbelto Jimenez and former Heavyweight king Joseph Parker takes on Australian former World title challenger Alex Leapai.

Boston’s Mark DeLuca faces Canadian Brandon Brewer over ten rounds at Super-Welterweight, young talents Alexis Espino and Raymond Ford taste their third action in the paid ranks, local favorite Anthony Marsella faces Jose Aubel, with another unbeaten Providence fighter Anthony Concepcion also featuring.

Go boo boo Andrade. This guy will give Canelo trouble. Make it DAZN!

Comment by Sweet Scions on 06-20-2019

...he said between flecks of spittle. Say it don't spray it Sulecki! I agree about Jacobs being better, but claiming Andrade is among the weakest at 160 is preposterous. With Sulecki himself being the farthest thing from a pushover, I…
