Andrade beats Kautondokwa for WBO middleweight title

  • Tony Bellew exclusive - Billy Joe Saunders is not a drugs cheat

Saunders, 29, (26-0, 12 KOs) tested positive for the stimulant oxilofrine - induced via a nasal decongestant spray - on August 30.

He could become the fourth boxer from the MTC Nestor Sunshine Boxing and Fitness Academy to win a world title following in the footsteps of Paulus "Hitman" Moses (former World Boxing Association Lightweight champion), Paulus "Rock" Ambunda (former WBO Bantamweight world champion and International Boxing Organisation (IBO) Super-Bantamweight world champion) and Julius "Blue Machine" Indongo, a former WBA, IBO and International Boxing Federation (IBF) world super-lightweight champion.

Instead of nixing the main event Eddie Hearn of Matchroom promotions offered Andrade (25-0, 16 KOs) a late replacement against the WBO number two challenger for the title Walter Kautondokwa (17-0, 16 KOs) of Nambia also undefeated.

Andrade landed another hard left in the fourth round that dropped Kautondokwa again, but Kautondokwa appeared to land his own left hand simultaneously for what looked like a rare double knockdown. It slowed because Andrade said that he had been having problems with his left shoulder leading up to the fight and that he re-injured it in around the fifth round.

Saunders is in the midst of a legal battle with the Massachusetts Athletic Commission after the governing body refused to grant him a boxing licence. With Golden Boy Promotions' other fighters also joining DAZN along with Hearn's stable, Andrade could eventually find himself facing former middleweight titlist David Lemieux, who is with Golden Boy, or the Hearn-promoted Daniel Jacobs, who faces Sergiy Derevyanchenko for a vacant middleweight title on October 27 in one of the final HBO events before the network drops its boxing coverage at the end of the year.

"It was definitely an adjustment, " Andrade said. That's where my amateur background helps.

"If you're talking about fighters who have taken over the counter products, like Billy Joe or Dillian Whyte, I have got an enormous amount of sympathy for them", Bellew told ESPN. Eventually, Hearn and Anadrade would like a fight with WBA champion Canelo Alvarez, who recently signed an 11-fight, five-year contract with DAZN, the online streaming platform that broadcast Andrade's fight. "One of them will be against Andrade". "I could have taken [a different] route and taken two easy tune-up fights, but I didn't", said Andrade, who pressed for the Saunders bout rather than an easier path.
