Eddie hearn, promoter of Demetrius Andrade, criticized the other 160-pound champions as GGG or Jermall charlo who do not want to fight with their fighter, monarch of the OMB. This, after the victory of Demetrius Andrade by unanimous decision on Liam williams.
“Demetrius he did his job, “he said Eddie hearn in the interview on the ring at the end of the fight. “His responsibility is not to convince the other champions to fight him. Champions are supposed to fight champions. “
Hearn was launched on Jermall charlo, champion of CMB in the category, which will make a fight of medium complication against the Mexican Juanito Montiel June 19. Even, Hearn said he is willing to Demetrius Andrade don’t fight in DAZN and to do it in FOX, television of Charlo, if the champion CMB accept unification.
“There are guys like Jermall charlo he’s doing a great job, he’s a champion in two divisions, but Jermall charlo going to fight against Juan Montiel“, he pointed Hearn. “I don’t know what he’s doing, but he has a chance. If you don’t want to accept a huge offer to fight in DAZN (against Andrade), Demetrius can go fight FOX. That is no problem. (Andrade) is not an expensive fighter. It will cost them the same as Derevyanchenko. Jermall charlo against Demetrius Andrade it’s a great, great fight. They are two great American champions ”.
Eddie hearn even argues that Andrade he didn’t look quite right in his fight with Williams, that that should encourage the other champions to unify.
“Why don’t the champions want to fight with Demetrius Andrade“, he pointed Hearn. “They hurt him today. He got tired today. You cannot give 160 pounds for your entire life. Yes Gennady Golovkin or Jermall charlo They saw him tonight, they must think they can beat him. Why not take up the challenge? “
The promoter also showed annoyance against Gennady Golovkin, champion FIB and that it is also part of the stable of its promoter and DAZN. This, due to the reports that the Kazakh is trying to arm a unification with the monarch AMB, Ryota murata, until the end of this year.
“Gennady Golovkin he’s a great champion, but he’s planning a fight with Murata December 31st. We are in April! ”, He claimed Hearn. “Gennady Golovkin (GGG) should be watching with DAZN and talking to us, and saying he wants to fight with Demetrius Andrade in summer, and then fight with Murata in Japan. Two huge unification fights. Champions must fight champions! ”
Hearn He insisted that the champions must face the champions.
“Today they hurt Demetrius Andrade, today he got tired, he cannot give 160 pounds forever ”, he reiterated Hearn. “He can’t just be defending his belt. Champions must beat champions. That’s what boxing is all about.
“Champions are supposed to fight champions.” 💯
