Demetrius Andrade returns to the ring on Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, making the first defense of his WBO Junior Middleweight Championship against once-beaten Brit Brian Rose.
Andrade captured the vacant title by outpointing Vanes Martirosyan in a somewhat boring fight back in November. He's known as more of a boxer than a puncher and has a tricky, awkward style that makes him a difficult style matchup for most fighters.
Rose has won 11 straight fights since being stopped by Max Maxwell in 2010. That loss looks a lot more ugly than it truly is, given there are some serious mitigating factors. The Brit has scored a couple of notable wins in that stretch and will be highly motivated in his first fight stateside.
This is your complete preview and prediction for Andrade vs. Rose with the WBO 154-pound title at stake.
