Demetrius Andrade Says Big Name Fighters Want No Parts of Him

Two-divisional champion Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade (31-0, 19KO) has grown frustrated with not landing a big fight with the top names in boxing. He feels the majority of these fighters are all talk and no action. Meanwhile he has shown willingness to roll up on any fighter’s press conference looking to push a fight.

The most famous post-fight press conference outburst was when Boo Boo made undisputed super middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez so mad he told him to, “Get the fuck outta here.” Andrade was caught on camera among the fans with a shirt on that read “Canelo & Billy Joe are scared to fight Boo Boo.”

Boo Boo is currently on the heels of Chris Eubank Jr and has been calling him out for a fight. Interestingly, the timing coincides with the WBO ordering him to fight mandatory challenger Janibek Alimkhanuly.


During an interview posted by AKHI TV, Andrade further made his case on “no show” fighters.

“A lot of people do the blah blah blah blah, lions only, lions only, lions only, and they be a no-show. I mean, they show up for the people they can beat though.”

“The last name Andrade can compete with any other last name out there. People want to see Andrade versus Benavidez […] Andrade versus Charlo, Andrade versus Canelo, Andrade versus Eubank. Andrade is a name that everybody wants to see versus a lot of these other fighters.”

The WBO champion would continue by mentioning, unlike his counterparts, he is willing to pull up on these fighters looking to make a fight.

“A lot of people bark up trees, online should I say, do the camera thing. Nobody in this generation I’ve seen pull up on anybody’s press conference but me. Canelo, Charlo, and Triple G – you want me to keep going? None of them guys do that shit […] I pull up on you for real. I don’t just run up on you because you had an event bro. I pull up on you for real and be like let’s make this shit happen.”
