Earlier tonight on the 2011 Season Finale of ESPN's "Friday Night Fights", 2008 U.S. Olympian, Demetrius Andrade took a step way up in class and won a dominate ten round unanimous decision over tough veteran, and winner of Season 2 of "The Contender", Grady Brewer.
Andrade might have been the much younger and less experienced of the two, but it didn't show as he worked his game-plan to a T, taking the veteran Brewer to school for their entire ten round jr. middleweight contest.
Working behind a piston-like jab, Andrade kept Brewer off balance and guessing all night long. Brewer who was coming off one of, if not the biggest win of his career, a fourth round TKO over previously undefeated and highly regarded Fernando Guerrero (21-0) on ESPN, just couldn't put together any offense against the much quicker and more skilled Andrade.
It was a very impressive showing for Andrade, who took the fight on very short notice, and silenced many boxing insiders who felt he was in over his head, winning the bout easily on all three judge's scorecards 99-91, 99-91, 98-92.
With the win Andrade improves to a 14-0, 9KO's, while Brewer who suffered just the second defeat in his last twelve fights, falls to 28-13, 16KO's
