Demetrius Andrade Wins 4 Round Unanimous Decision Against Tony Hirsch

Demetrius Andrade is a 21 year old from Providence, Rhode Island fighting in just his 5th professional fight. He has some work to do to improve, but the skill set is there. In the future, Andrade needs to fight better opposition because he can handle it with his stellar amateur background and cannot learn from fighting inferior opposition.

Tony Hirsch was no match for him. Hirsch had no answer for Andrade's straight left. Andrade throws good body punches and landed a hard right uppercut to Hirsch's head in the 2nd round. Andrade throws fast right hooks and straight lefts. In the 4th round, Hirsch landed a counter left hook. Andrade countered him by swarming Hirsch with a barrage of punches.

Demetrius Andrade improved his record to 5-0, 4 KO's. At the current time, Andrade relies too heavily on his hand speed. He can overwhelm opposition by sitting back and waiting to counter opponents. What happens when he fights better opposition? Andrade needs to box more, enter fights with a plan and not rely so heavily on his great hand speed. He can counter punch well, but will need much more as he tries to rise up the ranks. Tony Hirsch's record falls to 8-2-1, 4 KO's.
