Canelo Alvarez Dismisses Demetrius Andrade: “I’m Never Going To Fight With Him”

By: Hans Themistode Canelo Alvarez has made it known several times over that he’s willing to face any and anyone in the boxing world. Having fought as high as 175 pounds, the Mexican star has taken on some of the sport’s biggest and most notable names. Those would include the likes of Daniel Jacobs, Floyd Mayweather, Gennadiy Golovkin, Sergey Kovalev, and Erislandy Lara. But while Alvarez enjoys testing his skills against elite-level competition, he’s shown no interest in facing off against Demetrius Andrade. The WBO middleweight titlist has urged Alvarez to face him in the ring for numerous years and nearly came to blows with the pound-for-pound star during a recent press conference. Although Andrade holds an undefeated record and captured world titles in two separate weight classes, Alvarez doesn’t deem Andrade worthy of his time in the ring. “He’s a horrible fighter,” said Alvarez during an interview with Brian Custer on The Last Stand Podcast. “I’m never going to fight with him. He hasn't fought with anybody.” Despite Alvarez openly declining a showdown against Andrade, the WBO titlist is still attempting to bait him in. Although Andrade competes at 160 pounds, one full weight class lower than Alvarez, Andrade made it clear that he’s willing to meet Alvarez in any division. “Canelo, you going to run up to 175?” Questioned Andrade during a recent press conference. “Cool, I can meet you there.” Even with Andrade’s willingness to meet Alvarez anywhere to face him in the ring, Alvarez is focused on more pressing matters. On November 6th, at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, Alvarez is set to take on IBF super middleweight champion, Caleb Plant. With Alvarez already in possession of three of the four major world titles in the division, a win over Plant would crown Alvarez as the division’s first undisputed champion of all time. If the Mexican product manages to successfully rip away Plant’s title, he’s unclear of his next direction. Regardless of what Alvarez ultimately does, he’s made his feelings crystal clear that a showdown against Andrade is not in his future.

Mikey Garcia: “I Want To Pursue Big Fights”

By: Sean Crose “It’s been a year and a half since my last fight, so I am excited to get back in there,” says 40-1, four division titlist Mikey Garcia. “I am looking forward to giving my fans a chance to see me again, especially here in Cali, it’s my home state but I haven’t fought much here." Garcia is talking about his upcoming bout against the 38-2 Sandor Martin at Chukchansi Park in Fresno, California. The October 16th fight will be aired live on DAZN. “I want to pursue big fights, title fights, and be recognized as one of the best fighters in the world once again," Garcia says. "This is another step in that direction." Garcia is looking to get back on top of the fight game over two years after he suffered his first loss - a game attempt to lift a welterweight title off of Errol Spence. “I was interested in Manny (Pacquiao) and Regis (Prorais)," says Garcia, "but we weren’t able to get those fights and we landed on Sandor Martin, and he is a very good fighter. He’s a southpaw, he’s relatively unknown in America but worldwide and in the sport, people know him. He’s got a great record at 38-2, he’s hungry for a big opportunity like this and wants to capitalize on it." Fifteen years in the fight game has left Garica confident of his skill set. “I’ve experienced so many styles in my career," he says, "I’ve boxed several southpaws and sparred countless lefties. He’s a tricky one, he (Martin) uses his height and reach, so I must be prepared to overcome those strengths he has - a good jab, good straight left, his ring generalship is good - so I need to be able to attack properly but also be wary in defense." As always, Garcia is cool as ice in the face of a new challenge. “I don’t experience pressure," he claims. "No matter who I fight I am there to do my job and that’s it - I have already won the fight multiple times in my head and that’s it. You only feel pressure if you are unsure of yourself and I’ve never felt that, so I am confident I will win and look good doing it.” Garcia's last fight was a 2020 unanimous decision win over Jesse Vargas. Sandor's last ring outing was in April, when he won a unanimous decision over Kay Prospere in his native Spain.
