Andrade v Culcay: Your one stop preview for the WBA super-welterweight title fight
Last Updated: 11/03/17 10:00pm
Your one stop preview of the WBA super-welterweight showdown between Demetrius Andrade and Jack Culcay this Saturday night, live on Sky Sports.
Andrade can put a frustrating few years firmly behind him by taking the WBA 'regular' belt from Culcay in Germany.
The talented American's career has stagnated since he won the WBO super-welterweight title in 2013, with a promotional dispute restricting him to just three more fights, and he was stripped of the belt due to inactivity.
But Andrade can remind boxing fans of his slick skills when he takes on Culcay, who was crowned champion after halting Jean Carlos Prada in the ninth round last April.
The two fighters have already met in the 2007 World Amateur Championships, which saw Andrade claim a disputed points victory, and his Germany-based opponent is hoping to avenge this loss in front of his fans.
What the fighters say
The hunger is there to let the people and also myself know that I’m the best and this is what I have to do.
He beat me and won the gold that year, but now it's my time for revenge.

What our pundit says
Jack Culcay is strong, but I think Andrade’s class will tell in this fight. I think Andrade might break him down and box Culcay to a standstill.
What other fighters say
I remember him back in the amateur days and he's a very good fighter. He has fast hands, he's very strong, and I've always rated him highly
