Jack Culcay and Demetrius Andrade were face to face on Wednesday at the last press conference prior to their Saturday clash in Germany when they will fight for the World Boxing Association super welterweight title.
Culcay, Ecuadorian living in German, is the WBA super welterweight champion and said he will dedicate his fight to WBA late emeritus president, Gilberto Mendoza, who celebrate the first death anniversary on March 11.
This fight is very important for him, because it will open the path for new challenges. “I am ready for any kind of check Demetrius is going to give me! I have been waiting for an opportunity like this for almost 10 years now,” said Culcay. “After I beat Andrade, the doors are open for me to make a big splash in the US.”
On the other hand, Andrade, who was the world champion a few years back, was confident. ”On Saturday, you’re going to see the A-train at full speed steam rolling Jack Culcay. I beat him as an amateur, and now, I’m going to beat him as a pro. This ain’t going to be a three-rounder with training gloves on. I’m going to give Jack a reality check right on his chin!”
Culcay record is 22 wins and 11 KO’s; while Andrade has 23 wins, and 16 KO’s.
