Speaking to Brian Custer on the pertaining juncture, he said, “Let’s clear that up. I just finished out knocking out J-Rock right. This mother**ker was in the stands, he’s seen the brutal knockout. He’s scared as sh**t. He didn’t want to fight my brother.”

“He has nothing, nobody knows him unless you’ll mention Jermall Charlo, who Jermall Charlo needs to fight. Then y’all mention this clown.”

Demetrius Andrade has stayed out of action for a substantial period, but on April 17, he will step inside the squared circle to defend his WBO middleweight title against Liam Williams.

Andrade hasn’t yet asserted on booking a fight with Charlo, but looking at a wider picture of the 160-pound division, it looks like the duo will have to confront each other and stabilize the division at the moment.
