2007 amateur world champion and 2008 US Olympian Demetrius "Boo Boo" Andrade made his second consecutive appearance on ESPN2's "Friday Night Fights" this Friday at the Laredo Entertainment Center in Laredo, TX and improved his record to 4-0 (4).
Andrade once again showed why many consider him to be the top amateur prospect to come out of the 2008 Olympics as he dismantled Arnulfo Javier Romero, 3-4 (1), scoring a TKO at 2:53 of the second round.
Andrade used his blinding hand speed and tremendous power to completely dominate Romero from the opening bell dropping him with a heavy barrage of punches just as the first round was coming to an end.
Romero showed heart, but had no answer for Andrade's speed. A huge counter left uppercut in the second round from Andrade put Romero flat on his back. The referee began his count, but Romero was in no shape to continue as a halt was called to the contest.
Only 21 years old, Andrade continues to be impressive each time out, and although it is still early in his career, there is no question he has the skills and ability to become an absolute superstar in the years to come.
The bout was presented by Andrade's co-promoters, Art Pelullo's Banner Promotions, and Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing.
