Liam Williams: “I Believe Demetrius (Andrade) is Probably The Best Of The World Champions”

By: Hans Themistode Liam Williams will have to wait a little bit longer for his world title dreams to become a reality. The middleweight contender fought a competitive fight against WBO belt holder Demetrius Andrade this past weekend at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. Although Williams gave it everything he had and visibly stunned Andrade in the later rounds, the British native was simply outgunned as Andrade cruised to a unanimous decision victory. While he was hoping to pick up the win, Williams is under the impression that the loss to Andrade isn't the end of the world. Especially considering that he lost to who he believes is the best in the weight class. “I don’t feel like I’m going to take too much of a step back,” said Williams during the post-fight interview. “I believe Demetrius is probably the best of the world champions, other than Canelo.” Hearing his name mentioned as the best in the middleweight division doesn't come as a surprise to the Rhode Island native. For years now, Andrade has screamed from the mountain tops that he’s the best 160 pounder in the world and is willing to face every and anyone to prove it. Despite his brazen statements, Andrade has yet to face any of the division's top names including WBC titlist Jermall Charlo and IBF belt holder Gennadiy Golovkin. Although he hasn't shared the ring with either of those previously mentioned fighters, for Williams money, he’ll bet that Andrade is the cream of the crop. Before actually facing him, however, Williams had an entirely different perception of Andrade from the outside looking in. But with 12 hard rounds in the books, including a second-round knockdown, Williams gave Andrade all of the respect in the world. “Demetrius is a very good fighter. He’s better than I thought and more slipperier than he appears on tv. I hurt him a couple times I feel but he was gone before I knew it and couldn’t capitalize on it. He’s very good.” The post Liam Williams: “I Believe Demetrius (Andrade) is Probably The Best Of The World Champions” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.

Jermall Charlo Brings In Mark Breland: “Welcome To The Lions Den”

By: Hans Themistode Once former heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder unceremoniously removed former co-trainer Mark Breland from his corner, the Alabama native claimed that Breland’s career as a cornerman would be officially done and over with. With that said, it appears as though he’s doing just fine. Current WBC middleweight champion, Jermall Charlo, has decided to add Breland to his team. “Welcome Mark Breland to the Lions Den,” said Charlo on his Instagram account. For Breland, he endured nearly a full year of having his name dragged through the mud by Wilder. The heavy-hitting knockout artist grew acrimonious after Breland through in the towel and disobeyed his wishes in previous contest against Tyson Fury. Breland, a former welterweight world champion and Olympic gold medalist, grew concerned as he sat back and watched as Wilder received the beating of a lifetime. For the first time in his career, Wilder was dropped on several occasions and the well known right hand he’s used countless times to pull himself out of a sticky situation abandoned him on the night. Refusing to sit back and watch his man become damaged goods, Breland threw in the towel in the seventh. While he believed he was only doing what was in the best interest of Wilder, Breland was immediately excoriated for it. Wilder even went as far as to say Breland was “jealous” of him and spiked his drinking water. With Wilder officially axing him from his team, he took a few parting shots as he slammed the door in the face of Breland. “He should have been gone a long time ago,” said Wilder during an interview with 78SPORTSTV several months ago. “For him to betray me is crazy. He didn’t really want to be around. This just only the beginning of greatness but for you my friend, it is the end.” Despite the back and forth, Charlo has decided to bring Breland onboard to work alongside his current trainer, Ronnie Shields. Their new partnership will begin in roughly two months when Charlo steps into the ring against fringe contender Juan Macias Montiel on June 19th.
