    Because Andrade is a spoiler...........anyone who steps into the ring with him, there is the distinct possibility that he outboxes you and makes you look extremely bad. Even if you can possibly squeeze a win out (and no one has yet), you will look woefully inept doing it.

    There is no higher risk, lower reward fight than Andrade between 160-175

    Bigger fish to fry for Canelo than Andrade who's only looking for a big payday.

    Then why did he go hunting for titles at SMW?

    I gave you an explanation already it was because he fought Kovalev.

    High risk low reward. If Andrade was more exciting and brought more $$$ he'd have guys lining up for a dance.

    The duck spans two divisions and goes way back to when Clenelo was down at 154


    Apparently Boo Boo is a ''horrible fighter'' who ''hasn't fought anyone but Liam Smith was worthy

    Who had Smith fought before facing Clenelo?

    An inactive glass-jawed Kirkland who hadn't fought a year and a half was deemed worthy but world champ Boo Boo wasn't?

    Blown up shot 140 pounder Khan in a grotesque size mismatch?

    Angulo's war-ravaged ghost?

    Caleb Plant isn't a ''horrible fighter?'' Who had he beat? Subway Michael Lee? Vincent Feigenbutz? Uzecat? A shot 37 y/o Caleb Truax?

    A Callum Smith whose only claim to fame is beating a well past prime one-armed George Groves who was coming off a terrible shoulder injury and surgery to repair it just seven months earlier and who shouldn't have been allowed anywhere near a boxing ring?

    That's the same Callum Smith who got his ass paddled royally in his previous fight by Juan Ryder in a scandalous robbery and shouldn't have even held a world title let alone also be contesting the vacant WBC too.


    The ''horrible fighter'' excuse doesn't wash. We all know if Boo Boo was old and grey like Clen's favourite prey he would've got that call the very next day. Truth be told Clen just never wanted that smoke. Boo Boo is too fast, too mobile, too awkward, too slick and too risky.

    Why do you think Clen had Boo Boo and his old man kicked out of his post-fight press conference just as Boo Boo was about to expose how long he's been ducking him to the world?

    Boo Boo has been aggressively calling him out since biblical times but Clen wouldn't dare whisper his name in a darkened room in an abandoned house on a remote island in the middle of nowhere

    Fact is unifying that baron wasteland of a division 168 was much easier to do than trying to do so at 154, 160 and 175 and it's very telling how much unifying suddenly meant to Clen when presented with the opportunity of doing so in a graveyard division.

    ''For years on end, the two-division world champion has demanded that the Mexican star face him in the ring. The two campaigned at both 154 and 160 pounds for several years. But while Andrade made it his personal business to continually call Alvarez out, he was never given a contract with the pound-for-pound star’s name written upon it.

    Former WBO junior-middleweight champion of the world Demetrius Andrade is not happy with Canelo and his team after they according to him, ducked him when he was champion.

    ''But Andrade who held the WBO belt between 2013 and 2014 (that Canelo fights for next month) feels hard done by – saying on Twitter this week:

    @OscarDeLaHoya Liam Smith??????? All of a sudden the WBO 154 belt is important to Canelo? When I was WBO champ you never said my name!!!!

    The fight not being marketable doesn't wash either. Clen could pack out a stadium and do good numbers on TV if he fought a donkey.

    The reward was undisputed middleweight championship. Is that too low?

    I think Canelo is picking and choosing the fights that make him the most money and fame with the least amount of risk. Andrade does not fit that profile. He's a hard fight but his profile with the casuals is nonexistent. Worse, he's the kind of fighter to make you look bad even if you do beat him. That's why nobody wants to fight him.
