Andrade retains middleweight title in homecoming fight

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Demetrius Andrade retained his WBO middleweight title in his first fight in his hometown since he turned professional in 2008 with a unanimous decision over Poland's Majecki Sulecki on Saturday at the Dunkin' Donuts Center.

All three judges scored the fight 120-107.

Andrade, who previously held the WBO and WBA super welterweight titles, improved to 28-0 with 17 knockouts. He made the second defense of the title he won last October.

Andrade dropped Sulecki (28-2) with a left hand in the first minute of the opening round.

He dominated from there and after the fight he called out the owner of the other three major middleweight championships, Canelo Alvarez.

Sulecki was the WBO's top-ranked contender.
