Possible Fight: Demetrius Andrade v Yamaguchi Falcao



Possible Fight: Demetrius Andrade v Yamaguchi Falcao

Demetrius Andrade could be gloving up again soon. The Rhode Island middleweight, we hear, is in talks to fight in July, perhaps versus Yamaguchi Falcao.

A possible venue is Turning Stone, in Verona, NY.

Andrade fought his last bout at Verona. In October, he downed Alantez Fox. The 30 year old is 25-0, and co promoted, by Joe DeGuardia and Art Pelullo. Falcao is 30, 14-0, and signed to Golden Boy. He’d be the underdog in this proposed matchup.
