Andrade: My job is to go in and stop Martirosyan, you never want to leave the fight in the hands of the judges
As he prepares to break his Atlanta training camp and depart for this Saturday night’s fight against 2004 U.S. Olympian Vanes “Nightmare” Martirosyan (33-0-1, 21 KOs) for the vacant World Boxing Organization (WBO) junior middleweight title, undefeated Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade (19-0, 13 KOs) is set to make a major statement in Corpus Christi, Texas. Andrade vs. Martirosyan will be part of an HBO tripleheader, headlined by WBO junior lightweight Roman Martinez’ title defense against Mikey Garcia, plus a rematch between former world champions Nonito Donaire and Vic Darchinyan.
Martirosyan has a powerful team comprised of promoter Bob Arum (Top Rank), manager Cameron Duncan and Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach (although he is overseas training Manny Pacquiao). Andrade, a 2008 U.S. Olympian, is co-promoted by Star Boxing and Banner Promotions, managed by New Hampshire businessman Ed Farris, and trained by his father, Paul Andrade.
“I saw what happened in the (Julio Cesar, Jr.) Chavez-(Brian) Vera fight,” Andrade explained. “We’ve all seen what can happen when a name boxer is fighting on a show promoted by his promoter. My job is to go in and stop him (Martirosyan). You never want to leave the fight in the hands of the judges. I learned that lesson the hard way in The Olympics.” (more…)

Kovalev made very clear that at least for now, his only priority is to beat Ukrainian challenger Ismayl Sillakh (21-1, 17 KOs) on November 30 in Quebec City, Canada. The Kovalev-Sillakh WBO title fight will be a part of an HBO doubleheader paired with the Adonis Stevenson-Tony Bellew WBC light heavyweight championship bout.
Kovalev’s manager Egis Klimas laid out further plans for the Russian KO artist. “There’s a big possibility for Sergey to be in Russia for the fight on the end of February in Moscow,” stated Klimas. “We’ve already spoke about this option with Russian promoter Andrey Ryabinski and of course with HBO – we’re very friendly with them. If it happens, we will have a good opponent and make sure this fight will be broadcast on HBO here in the United States. After Kovalev beats Sillakh on November 30, Sergey will go to Russia and be even more popular there. (more…)
