Is now trained by Howard Grant who, I think, will bring him to another level.

Not by any stretch.

Lets see.

A multiple time champion who held the title for a number of years and has mixed it and beaten former champions.

vs a no time champion who hasn't got a single solitary good win on his card, who was absolutely dominated by a guy who was dominated by the top guy in the division

Is this even close? Seriously?

Is this just an attempt to boost up one of Kessler's previous opponents? Or to make Bute's impending win seem better?

andrade is like a big version of margarito imo. both are pretty much the same rugged mexican pressure fighter. both guys come forward throwing hard shots at the expense of defense, have good chins, can be outboxed by anyone with decent movement........ draw for me. one just has bigger physical dimensions than the other.

Andrade has a chin and decent power but that's where the comparisons end. The guy just does not have the effective aggression of Tony Margarito. Andrade is a very basic jab right hand semi-aggressive fighter. He has in no way a comparable uppercut to Margarito, no way an overhand right compareable to Margarito and no way does he have a hook comparable to Margarito.

Again, similar chin and power but aggression is key here. Andrade simply isn't unorthodox/aggressive enough to be a top super middleweight.

An attempt to boost a Kessler name while dissing Margarito. Should it be any surprise who is flooding this thread with distortions?

Can Margarito do a backflip?
