Demetrius Andrade Talks Fatherhood after Impressive Win Last Night

Demetrius Andrade is one of the top up and coming boxers in the world, and he added to that mind set last night, as he disposed of Brian Rose last night at Barclays Center to retain his WBO Light Middleweight Title. After the fight, Boo Boo, as he is called, talked about fighting anyone, including the top fighters in the world. “I believe I can beat Floyd Mayweather,” Andrade said, as he also talked about fighting Miguel Cotto, Canelo Alvarez, Austin Trout, and many others.

I also had the opportunity to ask Demetrius about fatherhood on what had now become Father’s Day on an early Sunday morning at Barclays Center. “It’s a blessing to have created life and what I have to do now is take care of them and show them the ropes and make sure they live a better life and do everything that is necessary for them.” He continued talking about the maturity you achieve by becoming a father. “You learn how to appreciate things a little more and you grow up and you use your brain when you have a child.” Boo Boo certainly uses his brain in the ring, and hopefully we will continue to see him do so.
