Eddie Hearn is utilizing the shotgun method to try to discover an opponent for his fighter WBO middleweight champion Demetrius ‘Boo Boo’ Andrade for his subsequent struggle that he’s planning on the finish of the summer time.
Displaying indicators of desperation, Andrade (30-0, 18 KOs) confirmed up at Canelo Alvarez’s post-fight press convention final Saturday to name out the favored star, and he promptly informed to “get the f*** out of right here.”
Hearn admits that it wasn’t a good suggestion for the 2008 U.S Olympian Andrade to make use of that tactic to try to strain Canelo to struggle him.
It’s a awful scenario Andrade is in with him being ignored and voided by the highest guys at 160 and 168. As Andrade factors out, Canelo had no issues combating Rocky Fielding, who wasn’t a giant title.
If the difficulty stopping Canelo from combating Andrade is his lack of recognition, why then did he struggle Fielding, Avni Yildirim, Callum Smith, and Saunders? These aren’t common fighters within the U.S.
Hearn desires Charlo and Golovkin for Andrade
“It most likely wasn’t one of the best thought to get a Canelo struggle,” mentioned Eddie Hearn to Secondsout about Demetrius Andrade exhibiting up at Canelo’s post-fight press convention to name him out.
“He’s a middleweight, we’re planning a struggle for him on the finish of the summer time. We all know what we wish to do. We would like [Jermall] Charlo, we would like Golovkin.
It’s unbelievable IBF middleweight champion Golovkin will comply with struggle Andrade, regardless that it will be a giant struggle for him.
The 39-year-old Golovkin seems to be solely taken with taking straightforward fights whereas he waits for Canelo to throw him a bone for the trilogy match that he’s been ready on since 2018.
If Golovkin had been to struggle Andrade, it will be a 50-50 struggle, and clearly, he’s not going to take that form of threat as a result of he’s ready/hoping to get the trilogy match with Canelo.
WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo can also be seeking to get a struggle with Canelo, and he’s proven zero curiosity in combating Andrade or David Benavidez.
It’s protected to say that Charlo won’t ever struggle Andrade whereas he’s nonetheless combating at a excessive stage.
“There are different choices as effectively,” Hearn mentioned. “Chris Eubank Jr is an alternative choice. Who is aware of in 2022 for Canelo? However for now, all Canelo desires to do is decide up the undisputed championship.
“I feel the champions [Golovkin, Charlo, Ryota Murata, Erislandy Lara, and Canelo], that’s what they need to be doing.
“You seen Canelo do it. Canelo fought a tough type in Billy Joe Saunders tonight. Nobody wished to struggle Billy Joe Saunders.
“He’s intelligent, he’s arduous to hit, he’s a superb mover and so is Demetrius. Demetrius has proven chinks in his armor. These guys must be leaping on that struggle,” mentioned Hearn.
The middleweight champions GGG, Charlo, and Ryota Murata, ought to wish to struggle Andrade, however they don’t wish to. Since there’s no approach of forcing them to, they’re not going to struggle him.
As a substitute, it seems they’ll milk their respective belts and look forward to a giant payday. Golovkin and Murata are anticipated to struggle in December. Curiously, Golovkin might sit and wait till then earlier than combating once more.
What Hearn isn’t saying is whether or not he was the one which planted the thought into Andrade’s head for him to point out up at Canelo’s post-fight pressor to ask him for a struggle. It wouldn’t be shocking if this was his thought.
Hearn wants to begin matching Andrade in opposition to high quality opponents as a result of so far he’s whiffed 3 times in a row since signing the American. Within the three fights Andrade has been with Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing steady, he’s fought these lower than common fighters:
- Liam Williams
- Luke Keeler
- Maciej Sulecki
These are the kind of fighters that Andrade may have simply fought earlier than signing with Hearn.
