WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders will meet Demetrius Andrade on October 20 at the TD Garden in Boston.

At their announcement press conference Friday in Boston Andrade declared, “Billy Joe is a great fighter, an undefeated southpaw, he’s ugly looking, but he can fight – but your boy Demetrius Andrade always come through. Never have I failed to come out with the victory.

“It’s going to be an entertaining build up and I’m thrilled to be working with Eddie Hearn, he’s bringing boxing at the highest level out here – there’s no sport like boxing, and we’re showcasing it in Boston.
