Demetrius Andrade (28-0, 17 KOs)
Demetrius Andrade needs no introduction. Behind the American chic amateur career. Gold World Cup in Chicago, participation in the Olympic Games, Pan American Games award. After all this, Demetrius moved to professionals. It happened in 2008. After more than ten fights on a bag diet, he turned to meetings with more serious rivals. Extraction in 2012-2013 several significant victories, Andrade got the title chance and took advantage of it 100%, defeating Vanes Martirosyan and becoming the world champion in the first middleweight.
After that, he held several belt defenses and moved to middle weight. Here he was lucky. WBO belt winner Billy Joe Saunders got doped and Andrade got a chance to fight for the vacant title. Walter Kautondokwa became his rival and Demetrius did not experience any problems with him, having won the title in the second weight category. Then there were fruitless attempts to get unification fights and passing defense with Arthur Akavov and Maciej Sulecki. The fight with Keeler will be the third belt defense in the middle category. Let’s see what the American will expect after.

Luke Keeler (17-2-1, 5 KOs)
You can’t tell a lot about Luke Keeler. He made his debut as a pro in 2013. By 2016, he had more than 10 fights, with most of the meetings he fought with opponents who had a negative balance of victories and defeats. The first meeting with a more or less tough opponent Tom Doran (16-0) ended in defeat. After that, he spent three fights with obvious underdogs and went on a revenge with Doran, which completely ended with an early defeat.
Then there were eight meetings in which he won seven times and once reduced the match to a draw. But these successes were very local and it was very strange that Luke was given the title fight. Let’s see if he takes this grand chance.

Demetrius Andrade vs Luke Keeler Fight Prediction
Andrade is a clear favorite of the battle. This is easily explained. Demetrius has a cool amateur career and a much richer professional career. He is technical, cruel, and boasts good footwork and timing. It is also diverse in attack. In fact, Keeler has nothing to oppose. He never tested himself in battles with such powerful rivals and is unlikely to be able to show at least something in this battle.
We believe that Demetrius will not bother with the Irish for too long, therefore we recommend betting on total rounds less than 6.5.
Our prediction – Demetrius Andrade will win
