Former Junior Middleweight Champion Demetrius Andrade has let it be known, that he’s more than willing and ready to step up to the plate and face Gennady Golovkin on May 5th, if the NSAC decides in their April 10th meeting to cancel the rematch between Golovkin and Alvarez.

This is what Andrade had to say about stepping in for Alvarez in the case of him being pulled.

“I am ready, willing and able to step to the plate on May 5th to fight Golovkin,” stated Andrade.  “I am always in the gym, and I will start VADA testing right now.  I guarantee that I will pass all the tests. I know other fighters can’t say the same thing. I am undefeated, and a two-time world champion.  Golovkin went through a period where nobody wanted to fight him.  I am that guy now.  The man nobody wants to fight.  Everyone says what does Demetrius Andrade bring to the table? Besides being the best American middleweight, and one of the top 3 middleweights in the world, everyone knows who I am, and the know how good I am. My question is to those who say that I don’t bring anything to the table. What did Murray, Adama, Geale,  Monroe and Rosado bring to the table?  None of the top contenders want to fight me so I believe that if Canelo is unavailable for May 5th, I want the opportunity to face Golovkin for the unified middleweight championship of the world.”

Andrade is most recently coming off a less-than-thrilling win over Alantez Fox last October, which followed an uninspired split decision win over Jack Culcay last March. The clock is seriously ticking if Andrade plans on making any real noise in the sport.

While we have to wait to see what the NSAC decides to do. We at least know that somebody credible is ready and willing to step in to face Golovkin.
