Boo Boo Decision! Andrade Wins Vacant WBA Super Welterweight Title on Split in 12

By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent

 

Rhineland-Phatz, Germany (March 12th, 2017)– Demetrius ‘Boo-Boo’ Andrade, the southpaw former WBO World Super Welterweight champion, won the WBA World Super Welterweight championship last night in Rhineland-Phatz, Germany, by split decision over interim champion ‘Golden’ Jack Culcay. Andrade, a southpaw from Providence, Rhode Island, went to 14-0 with 16 knockouts, while Culcay fell to 22-2 with 11 knockouts, Hessen, Germany. A female world title bout was also featured on the 10 bout well matched card, which featured nine decisions.

 

Andrade and Culcay held back somewhat, each careful not to punch themselves out. Andrade had height and reach advantage. Culcay wore earmuffs, but counterpunched brilliantly off of almost everything Andrade threw. Culcay forced himself inside, leading to some hard tit-for-tat combination exchanges.

 

Culcay appeared to win rounds four, six, seven, eight and round 12 as the busier and harder more effective puncher. It was not quite enough. Real Combat Media scored the bout 115-113 for Andrade. Overall, Andrade did superior body work, as he switched off from orthodox to southpaw stance. Culcay’s chin was solid, and Andrade swung his punches wide at times. Culcay appeared fearless and unconcerned with Andrade, he just did not do enough to win. One trend of thought held Andrade could not get the decision against Culcay, an Ecuadorian fighting out of Germany. However, two judges got it right. Andrade was unimpressive. He did do enough to win. He won at least seven rounds.
