The general consensus is that this week we will hear plenty of “It’s me again” from former WBO middleweight champion Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade (32-0, 19 KOs) as he steps in with the “Mexican Monster” David Benavidez (27-0, 23 KOs) for the interim WBC super-middleweight title live from the Michelob Ultra Arena in Las Vegas, NV. The fight will stream on Showtime PPV, PPV.com, and FiteTV for those in the U.K.
Benavidez has been chasing a big fight with Canelo Alvarez for quite some time, but since that hasn’t materialized, he continues to take on the next biggest challenge, which was Caleb Plant and now Andrade this Saturday night. Will this be the fight that lures Canelo for a mega fight, or will Andrade, a master pugilist, be too much for him?
Speaking of looking for a big fight, Andrade has spent his whole career doing so, but his fighting style hasn’t done him any favors. At 35, he’s finally getting the shot he’s wanted and earned, but it’ll be against the most formidable opponent he has ever faced. It’s a fight between the boxer and the puncher, so who will come out on top?
