Demetrius Andrade 160 lbs beat Walter Kautondokwa 159 lbs by UD in round 12 of 12

  • Promoters: Eddie Hearn (Matchroom Sport), Ken Casey (Murphys Boxing)
  • Ring Announcer: Michael Buffer
  • Aired On: Sky Sports, DAZN (Main Event)
  • WBO World middleweight title (vacant)
  • The fight was originally scheduled to be Andrade vs Billy Joe Saunders: however, following a failed drugs test and a video posted on social media where Saunders offered a woman crack cocaine and money for him to hit her and receive oral sex, Saunders was denied a boxing license by the Massachusetts commission. The WBO ordered Walter Kautondokwa to face Andrade for what was originally going to be the interim middleweight title, which became the full version when Saunders announced he was vacating the belt.
