WBO middleweight champion (up to 72.6 kg), American Demetrius Andreid (29-0-0, 18 KO) reacted indignantly to the prevailing opinion among the boxing community that he allegedly avoids a fight with WBC title holder, compatriot Jermall Charlo (31 -0-0, 22 KO).
“People will say whatever they want,” the fighter said in an interview with the SI Boxing Podcast. – What is the point for me to react to this? I cannot go into the details of those negotiations [Андрейд имел возможность подраться с братом Джермалла, Джермеллом Чарло несколько лет назад, но встреча так и не состоялась]but now I want to fight.
There is a lot of money at stake. People who think I’m dodging a fight are insane! Nobody is hiding from anyone. Now I’m with Eddie Hearn, and we offered Jermall $ 7 million, ”Andreid said.
