Rhode Island’s very own Demetrius “BooBoo” Andrade still remains undefeated. His most recent fight, which premiered live on Showtime on June 11, was entertaining as he TKO’d. Demetrius has been out of the ring for some time due to some unfortunate circumstances that tried to derail the super welterweight and 2008 world boxing champion’s career. However, Demetrius Andrade has continued to work hard, and his hard work has definitely been paying off. Now with a 23-0 record and 17 knockouts, nothing can stop him.
This RI native deserves a round of applause and some major recognition from his hometown. He is actively involved in his community and always tries to give back. He hosted a neighborhood clean-up event last summer, where he gave back to the children in his neighborhood. Providing them with brand new backpacks and free school supplies. He also hosts an annual turkey drive where he is able to provide hundreds of families in Rhode Island with turkeys for Thanksgiving Day. We come from a small state, but within this small state, there is huge talent waiting to get out. Continue to support one another and if you see Demetrius “BooBoo” Andrade don’t forget to put some Raspek on his name.
