Demetrius Andrade is Targeting a Showdown with Jermall Charlo


Fresh off his two-round destruction of Jason Quigley, WBO middleweight champion Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade (31-0, 19 KO’s) is in need of new opposition. The Rhode Island native is well aware of the criticism that he is not fighting the best competition. To combat this perception, Andrade is going on the offensive. The two-division world champion accomplished this feat by taking to his social media to call out WBC middleweight champion Jermall “Hit Man” Charlo (32-0, 22 KO’s).

The two have shared a long and extensive history. Well back in 2014, Boo Boo incurred the undying hatred of the Charlo twins when he pulled out of a fight date with Jermell Charlo. Since that time, the two brothers have loved to hate Andrade. At one point, they even went so far as to encourage the rest of the division to openly boycott Boo Boo.

Since that time, Jermall Charlo has somewhat softened his stance on dancing with the WBO middleweight champion. Actually, much like his hemming and hawing with super middleweight David Benavidez, the Hit Man has been all over the place in regards to a showdown with Andrade. Depending on the day, sometimes he says he would love to battle Boo Boo while on others he comes off as totally uninterested.

LET’S GET IT DONE!

While it is a legitimate fact that Demetrius Andrade would greatly benefit from better competition, the same is very true of Charlo. Unlike his brother Jermell, who just attempted a fight for undisputed, Jermall’s run at middleweight has left a lot to be desired. In fact, among boxers who enjoy the level of acclaim and notoriety that he does, the Hit Man’s resume is exceedingly weak. As a result, he has increasingly come under fire by the media and fans alike. This displeased vibe was at an all-time high when Charlo opted not to unify with Andrade, or face the fan favorite David Benavidez, but instead fought the unheralded Juan Macias Montiel.

Therefore, Charlo could pick up some major points for himself if he’d only double back for, and lock horns with, Boo Boo. It makes sense for each man. As mentioned before, both boxers have come and remained under fire for their less than ideal opposition. Going a step further, the fight would stand as a unification and would put greater pressure on Canelo to acknowledge them as viable threats. Not to mention it’s just a great fight that should happen. These two have already cohabitated the same division for far too long without a collision as is. Let’s cross our fingers and hope that we can get this marquee dustup on the docket.
