After what seems like forever, Jack Culcay (22-1, 11 KOs) and Demetrius Andrade (23-0, 16 KOs) finally finalized a deal for the two junior middleweights to meet on March 11 in Ludwigshafen, Germany, reports RingTV. Culcay will be putting his ‘regular’ WBA world title on the line.

For Culcay this is an opportunity to try to get even with Andrade after losing to him in an amateur tournament. For Andrade it’s an opportunity to remain active during his prime years, having fought only twice since 2014. And there’s no time like the present.

So speaking on the upcoming fight, Culcay says:

“Losing to Andrade in the 2007 amateur championships is something that has stayed with me to this day,” said Culcay. “I’m so happy that I will finally get the chance to get my revenge and show I am the better fighter.”

All in all this is pretty good news as this fight had been in failed negotiations before. Andrade, who is generally viewed as one, if not the best, fighter at 154lbs desperately needs to keep busy otherwise risk wasting his immense talent.
