Andrade v Kautondokwa will take place this weekend in Boston for what is expected to be an upgrade from the ‘Interim’ WBO middleweight title to the full title pending former champion Billy Joe Saunders’ appeal.
Indeed, the former champion not fighting this weekend has been a real kick in the teeth all round but the show must go on, as they say.
Suanders failed a VADA doping test that he had signed up for some time ago so the commission in Boston have decided not to grant him a license for the fight.
What happens next or where he goes from here is unclear but promoter of this weekend’s event Eddie Hearn has made it crystal clear that if his fighter Andrade wins they will look to make the Saunders fight again.
Straight away if possible.
Instead, big punching African Walter Kautondokwa (17-0-16KO) steps in and Andrade (25-0-16KO) knows anyone with that kind of punch can’t afford to be overlooked.
Ahead of this weekend’s boxing in Boston lets take a look at what’s in store regarding all the particulars.
