Demetrius Andrade Ready to Step in to Fight Gennady Golovkin on May 5th
Published: March 26, 2018
Philadelphia, PA /White Plains, NY (March 26, 2018) -- Undefeated, two-time world champion Demetrius Andrade (25-0, 16 KOs) is ready and available for a showdown with unified middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, should Canelo Alvarez not be cleared by the Nevada State Athletic Commission on April 10th for his May 5th rematch with Golovkin.
Andrade, who is ranked number one by the WBO in the middleweight division, feels that if Alvarez is not cleared by the commission for his recent positive test for Clenbuterol, he would be the most obvious candidate to face Golovkin.
Golovkin's Promoter Tom Loeffler stated after Alvarez was temporarily suspended that his fighter will still compete on May 5th with or without Alvarez.
"Whatever the commission does, Gennady would still fight May 5th if Canelo is out," he said. "If for some reason it's not against Canelo, we'll figure out the best course of action at that time, but he is training to fight May 5th.", Loeffler told Dan Rafael of ESPN.com
Like Golovkin, Andrade is also in the gym, and will be ready should he get the call on May 5th.
