Two-time world boxing champion Demetrius "Boo Boo" Andrade will be looking to keep his 24-0 record perfect come this Saturday night when he fights Alantez Fox on HBO Boxing after dark.

“It feels good, especially being back on HBO where I need to be, it’s prime time TV. To let everyone know and also let myself now that I am still the greatest and I am the best out there and it’s time for people to know who the real deal is,” said Andrade.

Boo Boo will be making a weight class move this weekend from junior middleweight to middleweight.

“I can sit here and say I am the best 154 pounder and nobody fights me, so I really can’t say I’m the best. I can’t keep saying that I’m the best, and the best out there don’t want to fight. So yeah I have to move up weight to get bigger challenges and especially challenging myself to be a two time world champion in 2 different weight divisions,”

Andrade has had his fair share of ups and down out of the ring with promotors during his 9 year pro career. But he says now is his time to shine,

“Now is the time, now is definitely the time because I’m still here. I didn’t go anywhere, I know I had ups and downs my record is still undefeated and I’m still here and it’s time to show,” said Andrade.

Saturday's coverage on HBO kicks off at 10 PM from Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York.
