Canelo Alvarez Believes He Knows Why Demetrius Andrade Wants To Fight Him: “Payday, Payday”

By: Hans Themistode For a number of years now, former two-division world champion Demetrius Andrade has told everyone who would listen that he could defeat Canelo Alvarez if he was only given the chance. The Rhode Island native has chased a showdown with the Mexican star when both were campaigning at 154 and 160 pounds. Even now, with Alvarez currently one weight class higher, Andrade has repeatedly stated that he would have no issue with moving up in weight to make the fight happen. This past weekend, Andrade continued his push to get Alvarez in the ring. The current WBO middleweight titlist sat ringside as he watched the pound-for-pound star dismantle Billy Joe Saunders, forcing the Britt to retire on his stool at the end of round eight. Following the win, Andrade took it upon himself to crash the post-fight press conference to congratulate Alvarez on the win and ask him when the two could possibly share the ring with one another. After a few minutes of back and forth arguing, Alvarez revealed that he knows why Andrade is so persistent in landing a fight with him. “Payday, payday I know that,” said Alvarez. “You are never going to get the fight.” With the win this past weekend, Alvarez added the WBO super middleweight belt to his WBA, WBC and Ring Magazine titles. Now, the 30-year-old will look to become the first undisputed super middleweight champion of all-time by taking on IBF titlist Caleb Plant. By and large, Alvarez is viewed as the consensus best fighter in the world mostly due to the proliferation of world titles he has in his possession and the numerous wins against former world champions plastered to his resume. There's a long list of reasons why Alvarez refuses to face Andrade but his lack of name recognition remains one of the main reasons. While the 33-year-old may have complied a spotless record through 30 professional fights, Alvarez simply has a hard time recognizing anyone he has actually stepped into the ring against. “Man you fight with nobody, you are a champion but you fight with nobody.” The post Canelo Alvarez Believes He Knows Why Demetrius Andrade Wants To Fight Him: “Payday, Payday” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.

Eddie Hearn: Fury-Joshua Fight To Go Down August 7th or 14th In Saudi Arabia

By: Sean Crose Although many will take the news with a grain of salt, Matchroom Boxing honcho Eddie Hearn has declared that the beyond long long awaited heavyweight championship bout between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua is set to go down in August in Saudi Arabia. "August the seventh, August the fourteenth," Hearn told Sky Sports Television Tuesday. "I think it's a very bad secret that the fight is happening in Saudi Arabia."  Hearn, who is Joshua's promoter, went on to provide some details regarding the promotion for the Fury fight. "It's the same people we did the deal with for Andy Ruiz," he said. "We're very comfortable. Anthony's comfortable. He knows those people. They delivered on every one of their promises last time. We're ready to go." Hearn, who has teamed up with Fury's promoters, Bob Arum and Frank Warren, appears to be the one doing the lion's share of the work here, at least when it comes to landing the fight in Saudi Arabia. Still, the glacial pace at which the bout is being made has frustrated many. Warren has declared that "we can't go on forever with this." Meanwhile Joshua himself directed a Tweet at Fury on Monday. (Photo by Richard Heathcote/Getty Images) “Spartan.” I’m tired. My fans are tired. Your fans are tired. We’re all tired of the talk. Less talk. More action!" Fury subsequently responded by tweeting: "come get some then you big ugly Dosser???? YOUR NO TALK NO ACTION." The good news here is that it's clear each man wants the fight to happen. There's also strong interest among boxing's fan base to see the first undisputed heavyweight champion in ages. Right now, Fury holds the WBC and lineal crowns while Joshua is in possession of the WBA, IBF and WBO belts. The winner of a fight between the two would be the unquestioned king of boxing's big men. Major bouts are so hard to make these days, however, that sometimes the public seems to give up on the hope of them ever happening. This, for instance, seems to be the case with welterweight titlists Errol Spence and Terence Crawford. Theirs was a once highly anticipated match that much of boxing's fandom has now essentially given up on happening. The fact that Spence and Crawford fight in the same division legends Ray Leonard and Thomas Hearns held titles in speaks volumes about the state of the cotemporary fight game. For Leonard and Hearns fought an all time classic for divisional supremacy, where the suspicion among many now is that Spence and Crawford aren't going to fight at all.
