WBO middleweight King Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade (30-0, 18 KOs) took a twelve round unanimous decision over Liam Williams (23-3-1, 18 KOs) on Saturday night at the Hard Rock Live at Hard Rock Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, Florida.
Andrade must have thought he had clocked out early of this particular shift, dropping Williams heavily in the second but the tenacious Welshman found his feet at the referees nine count. Andrade remained in control for the remainder of the contest albeit seemingly hurt in the ninth, but was adjudged to have done enough on the Judges scorecards to retain his title via scores of 116-111, 118-109, 118-109.
