The fight started off pretty slow, with both fighters sizing each other up. Neither of them looked to take the charge early on as they kept pawing at each other for a solid minute. Andrade then let off a flurry of punches that Quigley evaded pretty easily and countered with a straight right hand to the body. Quigley clipped Andrade again with another straight right hand.

This punch seemed to wake Andrade up as he connected with his own right, landing flush on Quigley’s temple, sending him tumbling to the canvas. With just a minute left to go in the round, Quigley beat the count and got back up. Quigley weathered the storm and made it out of the first round.

Andrade always starts strong and slows down in the later rounds. This characteristic of the WBO champ has become his fight style.

Demetrius Andrade wants all the smoke

After yet another dominant performance inside the ring, the unbeaten WBO middleweight champion called out everyone in the division as he looks for his next fight.

He said, “So when I sit there and listen to you say, ‘oh Jaime Munguia, let’s fight Triple G’. That’s not in my direction. You’re advocating the wrong fight. Jaime Munguia need to be fighting me if he looking to fight Triple G.”
