Light Middleweight title prospect Demetrius Andrade is targeting a world title opportunity after his impressive performance last Friday night when he scored a shutout unanimous decision win over Freddy Hernandez.
The bout was held at the Paramount Theatre and Andrade’s promoters, Arthur Pelullo’s Banner Promotions, Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing & JEG Boxing are now looking to make a title fight for Andrade a reality.
Andrade won by shutout scores of 100-89 on all three judges score cards and co promoter Arthur Pelullo is now looking for a world title shot.
“That was the kind of performance that any fighter would want to have just before a title shot”, said Pelullo, CEO of Banner Promotions.
“Demetrius is clearly clicking on all cylinders now. He’s twenty-four years old and now is putting everything together at the right time. He has always been one of the most skilled fighters out there and all he needed was the experience. My partners Joe DeGuardia, Darren Libonati and I have him in position for a title shot. We will hope to fight the WBO champion Zaurbek Baysangurov this spring and we are already putting the wheels in motion for that shot”.
With the win, Andrade, the native of Providence, Rhode Island upped his perfect mark to 19-0 with 13 knockouts.
