Current WBO middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade (29 wins (18 KOs), 0 losses) is interested in testing himself against former title contender Sergiy Derevyanchenko. He discussed it during an Instagram Live interview with promoter Eddie Hearn, Boxing Scene reports.
“I asked for that fight before. I have no problem fighting anybody in my division – anybody. I’m already fighting anybody. I’m fighting whoever’s available at the time, or whoever’s willing to get in with me. So, I’m not sitting here, picking and choosing anybody. I would like to fight the well-known, popular guys out there. But that’s not the case. But if you could put a Derevyanchenko fight with me, I would definitely love to take that fight,” Andrade stated.
Derevyanchenko's last bout took place on October 5, 2019. He faced former middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin for vacant IBF title. It was the Kazakh boxer who got the controversial unanimous decision.
Andrade's last title defense took place on January 30 - he finished Irish Luke Keeler in the ninth round.
As we reported earlier, the light-welterweight duel for WBC and WBO titles between Viktor Postol and Jose Ramirez has been postponed indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic.
