Demetrius "Boo Boo" Andrade (/ˈændrəd/ AN-drəd; born February 26, 1988 in Providence, Rhode Island) is a professional boxer from the United States and is the current World Boxing Organization Light Middleweight champion. He won the 2007 world championships as an amateur, then made his professional debut on October 23, 2008. Demetrius represented the United States in the 2008 Olympics. He is trained by David Keefe and his father, Paul Andrade.[2]

Amateur career[edit]

A Providence native of Cape Verdean descent, southpaw Andrade began boxing in 1994 at the age of 6. His nickname is "Boo Boo" and he currently competes in the light middleweight division.

Andrade won the United States Amateur Boxing Championship in 2005, and repeated it in 2006 when he also won the National Golden Gloves. He again won the National Golden Gloves in 2007, but did not compete in the U.S. Amateurs that year due to injury.[citation needed]

Andrade initially struggled at the international level, losing to Eastern European opponents at the World Cup in 2005 and 2006. However, he won the silver medal at the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro, losing controversially in the gold medal match to Brazilian hometown favorite Pedro Lima by a narrow 7-6 margin.[citation needed]

He won Gold at the 2007 World Amateur Boxing Championships, where he beat Kakhaber Zhvania, Dmitrijs Sostaks, 2005 silver medalist Magomed Nurutdinov, future champion Jack Culcay-Keth, Adem Kılıçcı in the semifinal round, and then Non Boonjumnong of Thailand in the finals, a match in which Andrade inflicted a standing eight count upon Boonjumnong and was leading by a score of 11-3 in the second round when Boonjumnong retired with an injury to his right arm.[3]

At the Olympic trials he defeated hard-punching Keith Thurman 27:13 [4]
At the Olympics he beat Kakhaber Zhvania and the highly regarded Russian Andrey Balanov14:3 but was shocked by Korean veteran Kim Jung-Joo 9:11 (Olympic results).

Professional career[edit]

Following the disappointment of not gaining a medal at the Olympics Andrade then turned professional and had his first pro fight in October 2008, which he won at Northern Quest Casino, Airway Heights, Washington beating Patrick Cape by second round knockout. He went on to win a TKO over Eric Marriott before making his Friday Night Fights debut against Tom Joseph on March 6 with a 1st round TKO victory then only 2 weeks later a second round KO win against Arnulfo Javier Romero. On June 19, 2009 he won the unanimous decision against Tony Hirsch. And another KO against Chad Greenleaf in the second round[5] He is also a member of Team Fight to Walk, which supports America's first clinical stem cell trial, along with other notable fighters such as Boyd Melson, Shawn Estrada, Steve Cunningham, Denis Douglin and Deandre Latimore.[6]

On November 9, 2013, Andrade defeated Vanes Martirosyan via split decision to win the vacant World Boxing Organization Light Middleweight title despite being knocked down in the first round.[7]
