Andrade back at the Bell!

By Dave Spencer, FightNews Canada

Of all the ring joints in all the towns in all the world, Librado Andrade walks back into the Bell Centre this Saturday April 4th as the Mexican warrior battles Vitali Tsypko in an IBF super-middleweight title elimination. The fight will serve as the co-feature to the Kendall Holt versus Timothy Bradley unification bout featured on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING live at a special time 10:45 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast). That’s right, the same Bell Centre that saw Andrade running out of time in his quest to become world champion as he managed to catch Lucian Bute in the waning seconds of the final round and put the champion on the floor for the first time in his professional career. The same Bell Centre that made referee Marlon B. Wright a household word as he admonished the fighter back to a neutral corner as Bute teetered on the ropes. The same Bell Centre which weeks later would try its best to move towards MMA rules by introducing the five minute round. Yes, that Bell Centre. (More)
