Demetrius Andrade Critical of Canelo’s Next opponent: “Another Easy Fight”

Demetrius Andrade has once again taken Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez under the sword of his words after the latter was speculated to face England’s John Ryder in May next year.

The former P4P King, Canelo returned to winning ways after suffering a defeat at the hands of the Russian, Dimitry Bivol in May, last year. The Mexican Icon shrugged off this loss by putting on a clinic against Gennadiy Golovkin just five months later, delivering a strong message to the boxing community that he is still relevant.

To follow it up, the 32-year-old underwent surgery on his left hand which has been troubling him for the past year or so. He even attributed his injury concern to be one of the causes of his defeat against Bivol.

Now the four-division champ is ready to get back on the scene and it seems like he will have an easy opponent in line for his return. Canelo is expected to fight for the first time on English soil in May against John Ryder.

Andrade who has been calling out Canelo since 2020 isn’t impressed with the Mexican’s choice of opponent. Andrade feels there were more interesting fights to make in the division than the one Canelo is after right now.

“Just more bull s**t, bro. That’s just what it is. Just another easy fight. Another situation for him to go in and say ‘I’m fighting the best’ but come on, he’s not the best,” said Demetrius Andrade

Eddie Hearn, Canelo’s promoter and Matchroom boxing’s president, has justified Saul’s choice of rather easy opponent by lamenting that the Mexican needed a tune-up fight after his hand injury.
