Speaking to Brian Custer on the same, Andrade had some strong words.

“Listen, you know at the end of the day when I was going to fight Billy Joe Saunders back. When I was supposed to fight him, did he get tested positive for taking steroids, the answer is yes. And who was working with him, Dominic Ingle. Did Kell Brook get tested for steroids? Yes, who’s working with him? Dominic Ingle.”

Dominic Ingle has coached several boxers from the UK. And as Andrade spoke in the above interview, a few of Ingle’s boxers tested positive for steroids.

But for the Liam Williams fight, Andrade doesn’t care whether or not the latter will test positive for steroids. He has a firm belief in his own abilities and he wants to prove the same when he meets Williams on April 17.

‘Boo Boo’ feels he’s an intimidating fighter who does cosmic damage on his opponents and he doesn’t need any performance enhancement drugs.

Moving into this fight, the WBO champ will have his eyes keenly set on defending his title next to align himself up for even bigger fights.
