WBO Middleweight Title Challenge
In his first hometown fight last Saturday night in DAZN’s main event at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Rhode Island, Providence, WBO Middleweight Champion Demetrius Andrade (28-0 17 Kos) had himself a showcase type performance in shutting out highly ranked Maciej Sulecki (28-2, 11 Kos).
It was clear from the first round that there are levels to this Boxing sh*t and Sulecki found that out quick when he got dropped for an 8 count. No disrespect to Sulecki who was a worthy opponent but, on that night, Sulecki had met his match. I expected to see a competitive bout between them two but as the rounds wore on Andrade’s superior skills were on full display and turned the bout into a glorified sparring session for his home crowd to witness live.
Sulecki seemed out of place and had absolutely no answer to Andrade’s slick offensive attack and defensive skills. Truth be told this was the first time I saw Sulecki get outboxed and literally shutout for a full twelve rounds of action. No other opponent has ever had this much success against him until that night. All three of the Judges scored it 120-107 for Andrade.
That being said, Andrade is a serious problem in the Middleweight Division and to any competitors game enough to step into that squared circle with him. I personally think we still haven’t seen the best of Andrade yet. But if the Unified “Kingpin” Champion of the Middleweight Division Canelo Alvarez (52-1-2, 35 Kos) were ever to accept his challenge maybe then we would see Andrade’s full arsenal on display and finally get the best fighting the best for Undisputed Middleweight Champion of the World. Just a thought.
Until then Demetrius keep piling up them wins, your call will be answered soon.
WBO Middleweight challenge
WBO Middleweight Champion Demetrius Andrade (27-0, 17 Kos) will be looking to defend his title for the second time in his first ever hometown show at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Rhode Island, Providence against Maciej Sulecki (28-1, 14 Kos) on Saturday June 29, 2019.
This bout should be an exciting one considering Sulecki is a gamer type fighter that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Maciej is a strong and skillful fighter who doesn’t back down when the going gets tough inside that squared circle. This being his first crack at a world title, I’m expecting Sulecki to come prepared with the gloves blazing for a war.
That being said, Andrade is the truth inside that squared circle. Tough, gifted, well-schooled with a very high boxing IQ. He is an undefeated two-time two-weight division World Champion who is presently holding the WBO Middleweight Title. Real Talk! Andrade has high aspirations of one day unifying the Middleweight Division. Before any of that can happen, he’s got to dispatch of his mandatory challenger Maciej Sulecki in a convincing fashion in order to possibly entice Canelo Alvarez the Unified “Kingpin“ Champion of the Middleweight Division to a fight for the last remaining piece of the puzzle, his WBO Middleweight Belt.
There are levels to this boxing sh*t and on Saturday July 29, 2019 at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Rhode Island, Providence, with home court advantage, I’m expecting Andrade to put on a skillful display inside that squared circle and walk away satisfying his fans and family with the win and the WBO Belt still in his possession.
Tune in live on DAZN and Sky Sports for a thrilling night of Boxing.
WBA Middleweight Title Eliminator
Last night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York, Daniel Jacobs (34-2, 29 Kos) secured his WBA Middleweight Title Eliminator position by defeating a worthy contender in Maciej Sulecki (26-1, 10 Kos).
This was an exciting bout from start to finish. Real Talk! This Kat Sulecki may have sounded as an unknown to casual boxing fans but last night he definitely made a name of himself and showed the Middleweight Division that he’s a real -life player to be taken seriously. Although the outcome wasn’t what he had hoped for his aggressive style kept the attention of the fans in attendance.
That being said there are levels to this boxing sh*t and Daniel Jacobs is definitely levels above Sulecki. When the going got a little rough, Jacobs stepped up his game and showed Sulecki why he’s one of the top dogs in the Division. Sulecki was a tough customer who came out the gate ready to fight. The Kat’s got heart with no intention of backing down, but Jacobs is a seasoned warrior who adjusted on the fly and kept steady control of his opponent. It was a back and forth type of fight from round to round but when it was time for the curtain call, Jacobs knocked Sulecki down with a straight right hand in the 12th round with less than minutes left to wrap off the performance. Nuff said.
Jacobs needed a tough outing like this to keep him sharp and ready with that hunger for more. This win makes him a WBA mandatory challenger to Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and gives him another opportunity to redeem himself for his loss to “GGG” by unanimous but controversial decision in a close 12 round title fight back in March 2017.
Congratulations on your win Danny. Until your next bout stay focus and ready at all times.
