Andrade was all business as he received a rapturous hometown welcome in Providence, the two-weight world champion weighing in at 159.9lbs for the second defence of his WBO belt.
Sulecki, was only slightly lighter than the unbeaten champion, coming in at 159.5lbs. The pair engaged in a brief face-off before the American charged off the stage.
Britain's longest reigning current world champion Yafai and Jimenez both weighed inside the super-flyweight at 114.5lbs for their WBA title fight and there was plenty of hostility as they came face to face.
