‘Ironman’, who is one of the most renowned super-welterweights in the world, has shared a slight beef with Andrade from his amateur days. Earlier, he was in talks to stage a fight with either of the Charlo brothers, but the bout didn’t materialize.

In the above interview, Andrade was questioned about the same. However, the 32-year-old refused to reveal his opinion on the pertaining juncture.

Demetrius Andrade has been out of action for a year now. He maintained his unbeaten record with a successful title defense Luke Keeler. Now, ‘Boo Boo‘ is in search of a resilient opponent and Jermell Charlo could present him with a staunch challenge.

Demetrius Andrade to move down to confront Jermell Charlo?

Andrade competed in the super-welterweight roster until 2017, but went up to 160-pounds a year later. He claimed the WBO middleweight title in 2018 and has defended it successfully since then. The southpaw has kept a substantial run in this division until now and has shown no signs of slowing down.

Ever since he stepped up in the middleweight division, he hasn’t shown a magnificent interest in getting down to his earlier division. Hence, if Jermell Charlo steps up and demands a 12-round show with him at middleweight, this fight could probably get staged.
