Ex-World Champ Andrade Returns With Vengence October 17

By Boxing Press October 9th, 2015 All Boxing News

All undefeated junior middleweight Demetrius "Boo Boo" Andrade (21-0, 14 KOs) has ever wanted to do since he first laced up a pair of gloves as a kid is to box and that's why, after a 16-month stretch of inactivity, totally unrelated to injury, the 2008 U.S. Olympian is returning to the ring October 17 to headline a non-televised show at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.

A myriad of reasons kept the 27-year-old Andrade out of the ring and without a purse check since June 14, 2014, when he destroyed No. 1 mandatory contender Brian "The Lion" Rose (25-1-1, 7 KOs) in seven rounds, impressively winning on HBO in what turned out to be his first and only WBO title defense.

World Weekend Boxing Roundup: Postol, Broner, Pedraza Win

By Wellington Amadulu October 5th, 2015 All Boxing Results

It was a good Saturday night at the fights at two locations in America and we kick off this week's report at the outdoor venue StubHub Center in Carson, California.

That's where upstart contender Viktor Postol, 28-0 (12), shocked former world title challenger Lucas Matthysse, 37-4 (34), with a tenth round KO to capture the vacant WBC light welterweight belt.

This was an exceedingly ugly fight for the first half of the contest as the much taller Postol kept his adversary at a distance with movement and then locked the arm of Matthysse anytime the Argentine slugger got in close, prompting Matthysse to repeatedly rabbit punch.

In the sixth and seventh rounds, Matthysse finally provided some excitement in the rather lacklustre affair by landing some big shots, which Postol took surprisingly well.

By the eighth frame, Postol began to add an offense to his efforts and Matthysse was getting tagged while he attempted in vain to repeat his earlier success.

In the tenth, Matthysse stepped up his efforts but near the end of the round was caught by a pinpoint right hand counter that caught him flush on the eye.

"La Maquina" crumpled to a knee where he stayed and was counted out at 2:58 of the tenth.

Postol displayed good skill throughout the bout in leveraging his height and reach advantages, giving Matthysse very little to work with, and proved that he could be a force to be reckoned with in the future. More...
