    Bellicosity? Dang, put the pipe down son!

    WIlliams boxing IQ is a negative number. GGG or Canelo wipes the floor with Andrade; they wouldn't get hit with those stupid uppercuts.
    They'd time them and counter and hurt Andrade. I predict either GGG or Canelo to KO Andrade.

    Williams is a good, but crude boxer. He needs to stay away from sneaky boxers.

    He just didn't know how. His corner gave him very good instructions but he was incapable of turning them into reality.
    He certainly gave Andrade the fight of his life. Maybe over 15 rounds he even wears him down and wins.

    Andrade vs Munguia would be a good fight with Munguia eventually getting battered, or Andrade getting KO.

    GGG gets beat up quite predictably against Andrade.

    Canelo is a different animal however. I think Canelo might lose the first half of the fight and win the second half.

    His conditioning has gotten much better, but just like we saw with Andrade, as we saw against GGG, it's easy to get gassed from bludgeoning your opponent.

    Yea I was surprised also but he's been knocked down before, whilst Williams is a good puncher at that Euro level, his punches didn't look THAT heavy just decent power.

    I think that's a real concern if Andrade faces one of the other champs.

    Surely the blueprint is set, why box him much when you can just pressure him? Someone with a better skillset then Williams (and hopefully a decent ref), doing that it going to have major success.

    I scored it 118-109 on a rbr basis and it felt more like a 116-111 but sadly rounds are scored rbr.

    Williams just let Andrade nick the close ones especially that one in the last 20 secs

    Williams definitely improved his stocks after that, he has obviously improved from the Smith fights.
    I feel like the 2nd Smith fight felt less competitive than this even if the scores may have been closer.

    Smith coasted against Williams but Andrade had to actually work every round

    Ugly fight for Andrade but a win....it boils down to opponents being willing to walk through his shots....pressure is the key....try to box him and you got problems...Andrade is down to earth and humble and talks straight

    Eubank Jr beats Andrade 100%. I never thought I'd be saying that. Andrade is a poor man's Billy Joe, a very poor one. Eubank will KO him into oblivion.

    Respect to Williams for his dogged display, not short on effort.
