Results and Highlights: Andrade Holds WBO Title More Than Williams – Boxing Sports

Demetrius Andrade once again held his WBO middleweight title in Florida, beating Liam Williams with a unanimous decision over 12 rounds.

Andrade (30-0, 18 KO) won with a score of 116-111, 118-109, 118-109. Bad Left Hook also won Andrade’s Battle 118-109.

Andrade defeated Williams (23-3-1, 18 KO) in the second round and attacked him early on with a fierce attack. However, Williams continued to move forward throughout the battle, staying true to his nickname (“The Machine”) and making Andrade work in all 12 rounds. Andrade couldn’t simply coast, but it was his sharp shooting and movement that won the battle, and Williams didn’t have enough answers.

“Liam Williams is a fighter hell, tough and strong, he’s going to fight. That’s the type of fight people wanted to see me,” Andrade told DAZN’s Chris Mannix. “I showed off, I got a W, but my hat goes to Williams. I already knew he was tough, but he got up and wanted a little more It was — it showed me that he was already it, it wasn’t a surprise. He was a dog. “

Williams, who said he didn’t intend to over-respect Andrade in the ring in the build-up, did his best but admitted that he was beaten by a better man that day.

“The Demetrius is a very good fighter. To be honest, he’s better than I expected,” Williams said. “I couldn’t get it right in combination with the landing shot. I hurt him several times, but he was gone before I got the capital.”

Williams, 28, also hopes to come again sooner or later.

“I don’t feel like taking a step back. I’m going to stay at the world level,” he said. “I think Demetrius is probably the best of the world champions (160 years old). I respect him, he is of high quality.”

Andrade was asked if he felt he had persuaded other champions in the division to fight him, basically shrugging, but said he was ready.

“I’m a champion. I’m undefeated. You shouldn’t have to inspire anyone to get into the ring,” he said. “Whenever we can sit down and do something, I’m glad it. I’m going to put it all at risk. I want to show that I’m the best, You need to join with them, and they have to do that too. “

Promoter Eddie Hearn has called on Jermall Charlo, the WBC title list, to fight Andrade.

“He’s done his job,” Hahn said of Andrade. “It’s not his responsibility to convince other champions to fight him. The champion is supposed to fight the champion. Jermall Charlo is fighting Juan Montiel. What he does I don’t know if he has a chance. If (Charlo) doesn’t want to fight in DAZN, we made a tremendous offer to him, and Demetrius will fight in FOX, that’s a problem Not. He is not expensive. “

Once upon a time, Hahn explicitly called on IBF titleholder Gennady Golovkin, who was promoted by the matchroom and has a DAZN contract, and Ryota Murata, the WBA title list.

“Gennady Golovkin should be aiming to fight Demetrius Andrade in DAZN in the summer and Ryota Murata in December. Champions have to fight champions. Charlo will try Golovkin. Let’s fight for unity! “

The collaboration caused a mismatch as Gongora dominated Pearson throughout the battle and captured Pearson with a good shot in the eighth round. Pearson was dropped, got up, and noticed that he had lost his eyes. He got out of the fight (he had no discussion about winning a single round up to that point) and the eye injury is not confusing.

Pearson (17-3, 12 KO) never entered this. The length and size of the gongora (20-0, 15 KO) was too large, and Pearson didn’t know the range or plan of the attack. You must like what the 31-year-old Ecuadorian sees in this battle. He was patient, the attacks were severe and measured. And when he wanted to open up, he did it effectively. It wasn’t dramatic and there weren’t many fireworks, but it was a solid performance of Gongora hoping to get involved in a real battle at 168.

  • Alexis Espino UD-6 Ty McLeod: Not the best show from the 21-year-old super middleweight outlook Espino (8-0, 5 KO), but with a clear win with scores of 59-55, 59-55, 60-54. .. MacLeod (6-1, 6 KO) took a big step in opposition here, and it showed it as it was the fact that he was not a purely boxing-focused man. It was. They also said they were fighting MMA and kickboxing, and he had some kickboxing style boxing flaws in his technique. However, acknowledging the achievements of the 24-year-old local fighter, he stayed there and gave it the best shot possible. He was top notch, but he never stopped fighting.
  • Andrey Fedsov KO-1 Magomedrasal Majidov: A 34-year-old from Azerbaijan, Majidov had terrible results for heavyweight applicants who wanted to chase themselves in a hurry. The right hand that put him here was a heavy and heavy shot, not a fluke or a joke. However, Majidov (3-1, 3 KO) also severely hurt his ankle in the fall, which was almost the case. He got up and tried to keep going, but he fell down again on the first blow and couldn’t stand it. For Fedsov (32-3, 26 KO), this is his first fight since 2018 and he hasn’t lost yet since 2013. He has real power, not a top candidate, and more than ever, he has real power, which is a big win for him. I hope Majidov’s injuries aren’t that bad, but they didn’t look good to say the least.
  • Arthur Bjarslanov MD-8 Israel Mercado: The 25-year-old Bjarslanov will be 8-0 (6 KO), which is a simple battle for him with a subtly clever Mercado (9-1, 7 KO) who does not have good skills. There was not. A man who is tough like hell and can hang out in battle. He’s like someone who will get a lot of calls to test prospects, he’s willing to mix it up. Bjarslanov hasn’t surprised me yet when I met him. He’s a bit noisy from the Canadian circuit, solid and well trained, but I’m not sure if he has the true plus-plus attributes. The scores were 76-76, 77-75 and 78-74, the latter two being Bjarslanov. The bad left hook was 77-75 for Bjarslanov.
  • Prelim: Junior Welterweight Outlook Aaron Aponte went to Javi Martínez (4-8, 3 KO), 3-0 (1 KO) with a four-round decision victory with an overall score of 40-36. There was a remarkable result here, with Jorge Castaneda (14-1, 11 KO) defeating 130/135 prospect Osa Jones III (5-1-1, 2 KO) by majority vote. There were signs that pro games might not fit 21-year-old Jones, and this was another — big. The scores were 76-76, 76-75, 77-75, and some reports felt that Jones was closer than it really was.
