Having been originally scheduled to fight former WBO champion, Billy Joe Saunders, Rhode Island's Demetrius Andrade fights for the vacant WBO middleweight world title, after Saunders was denied a licence to fight by the Massachusetts State Athletic Commission, and later vacated his title. Andrade takes on undefeated African, Walter Kautondokwa, who has won all but one of his 17 fights by stoppage.

Andrade vs Kautondokwa doesn't generate the same level of interest amongst the boxing public as Saunders vs Andrade would have done, but Andrade still gets an opportunity to become a world champion at 160, set up big fights for the future.

Andrade starts by scoring a controversial knockdown, as an off balance Kautondokwa falls, and Andrade fails to pull back his left hand in time, which results in him hitting Kautondokwa when he's down.

Andrade is patient, uses his feet, Kautondokwa is cagey, but as soon as he takes a chance in round 3, Andrade lands a hard left hand, dropping and hurting Kautondokwa, this time, it's a clean knockdown. Andrade is more aggressive in round 4, and seems happy to take chances, as he throws a risky left hand, and both fighters land simultaneously, both seem to score a knockdown, but Andrade, definitely doing the more damgae, scoring the official knockdown, and the much more heavy knockdown. Andrade comes very close to stopping Kautondokwa in round 4, scoring 2 knockdowns to make it 4 in as many rounds, has the African in big trouble, but Kautondokwa just about makes it through the round, but looks like he is on the edge of being stopped.

The last two thirds of the fight are much more negative than the first third, as Andrade seems to nick most of the rounds, but not dominate many, as he moves, point picks, and seems to do enough to build his lead, but not take it up a notch, doesn't put his foot on the gas as he did earlier, boxes well, does some good work, puts up a technically good display of boxing skills, but doesn't make a statement against an opponent who seems overmatched.

After 12 rounds, a one sided fight, Andrade, as expected, is announced the winner, by unanimous decision, winning by extremely wide margins of 14 and 16 points, and wins the WBO belt, becomes a two weight world champion, and more than makes his mark in the middleweight division by winning the title, but he doesn't make a statement, doesn't improve his reputation with the lacklustre performance.

Prediction,

This should be the for the WBO title, Saunders should not have the belt anymore, it should be taken from him and made vacant. Tough break for Andrade, not his fault Saunders failed the drug test, but Saunders gets to sit on his lazy backside as the champion, and Andrade can't fight for the title.

Andrade, still, Saunders or no Saunders, is coming off 12 months out, it is his second fight at middleweight since 2012, I think he is fighting an easier opponent, but he is also fighting an opponent he has seen less of, knows less about.

Walter Kautondokwa is unknown, untested, and he is not young, he is ranked high, but I don't think that means much. Kautondokwa is a late notice opponent, but hopefully, he has been in the gym for a while, has been training on off the chance he could get an opportunity like this, and he will show up prepared physically and tactically. Kautondokwa is not old, he is undefeated, has had a fair few fights, 94% KOs, he fought 3 times in 2017, has had a fight this year, so he might be a good fighter who hasn't had the chance to prove it yet. Kautondokwa has had 6 title fights, all of them African title fights, he is a title fighter, and he has not been occupued at the level he has been fighting at, seems to have had an easy career, but African title level to world title level, that is one hell of a leap up, and it seems likely, good fighter or not, he doesn't have the experience to do well against Andrade.

In terms of resume, experience, in terms of fights, rounds, and levels, you have to say Andrade should be a heavy favourite. Being older, and having less experience, is a bad combination for Kautondokwa. It is likely Kautondokwa is the puncher in this fight, the difference in level of opposition makes his KO less important, but still, 94% is a lot, and African title level is still competing for a continent.

I think Andrade wins this by a wide UD, I won't be shocked if he stops Kautondokwa, but I think this will go the distance. I think this will be a shutout.

Solid performance from Andrade, but not as good as I expected, he did more damage than I expected, but mentally, he seemed to lack motivation at times, I think Andrade didn't perform, wasn't at his best because he wasn't in against Saunders, wasn't in the meaningful fight he had trained for. Andrade still boxed solid, moved well, defended quite well, his variety, when he attacks, phenomenal, his ability to pivot, spin his opponent, get them in that position, is brilliant, but in the last 8 rounds of this fight, it was one paced, it was lacklustre, and Kautondokwa was vulnerable and limited enough that Andrade could have taken it up a notch, been more aggressive and tried harder to make a statement, he didn't give rounds away, he boxed well, didn't necessarily carry Kautondokwa, but I think he coasted to victory.
