A purse bid was held today in San Juan, Puerto Rico for the highly anticipated WBO Junior Middleweight World Title bout between champion Zaurbek Baysangurov and top rated and undefeated contender Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade. The winning bid by K2 Promotions was $501,000 while the very strong secondary bid of $401,000 came from Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing and Banner Promotions. 

“We’re very excited for Demetrius to get this world title opportunity and congratulate K2 Promotions on their winning bid” said DeGuardia. “We’ve believed for a long time that Demetrius would win a world title and we are honored to present him with this opportunity.”

With a record of 19-0-0 with thirteen stoppages, the 25-year-old Andrade has utilized his world-class skills to dominate opponents since turning professional in 2008.

A native of Providence, Rhode, Island, Andrade was a member of the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team. He is coming off a ten round shutout decision win over former world title challenger Freddy Hernandez on JANUARY 25, 2013 at The Paramount in Huntington, New York before a standing room only crowd in a bout broadcast on SHOWTIME.
