Demetrius Andrade (26-0, 16 KOs) will be making his first title defense since he won the WBO middleweight belt when he faces Artur Akavov on Jan. 18 at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Akavov (19-2, 8 KO), who is ranked No. 8 by the WBO said, "After the fight with Saunders, I was hoping for a rematch because that fight left a lot of unanswered questions." He added, "I believe that Andrade is a better fighter than Saunders, and this is my chance to answer those questions. I understand the weight of the responsibility that is on my shoulders and will give it 100 percent."
