Demetrius Andrade dismisses Liam Williams fight claiming he has ‘no clue’ who Welshman is in brutal tweet
DEMETRIUS ANDRADE has dismissed claims he will fight Liam Williams – saying he has 'no clue' who the Welshman is in a brutal tweet.
Earlier this week, Eddie Hearn – Andrade's promoter – revealed the American would fight WBO mandatory challenger Williams.
The Welshman's promoter, Frank Warren, also shared his 'delight' at the fight getting the go-ahead after terms were agreed.
The showdown is set to go ahead in the USA this April.
But 29-0 southpaw Andrade himself has slammed the news, instead pushing for a fight with WWE star Baron Corbin.
In a series of tweets, Andrade, 32, wrote: "Talk about being blindsided, who decided on all this?
"We're preparing to fight @BaronCorbinWWE at a catch weight.
"Woke up 208 this morning, big news coming soon!!"
Andrade continued: "New Gym should be ready by mid-March so I can finally get back.
"Haven’t even been able to hit the bag since before Thanksgiving. @BaronCorbinWWE is late April, early May good for you??"
Andrade – who has held world championships in two weights classes – then took aim at 23-2-1 Williams.
On the 28-year-old, the American snapped: "Stop asking me about this @liamwilliamsko guy I got no clue who he is.
"By the time he turns pro I’ll probably be retired!"
Andrade has been pushing for a big fight with another champion – such as Billy Joe Saunders – since beating Luke Keeler a year ago.
But he has been ordered to face his WBO mandatory challenger in Williams.
The Welshman has reinvented himself at middleweight since back-to-back defeats at the hands of Liam Smith.
Since then, Williams has won seven fights in a row, clinching the British title in the process.
Most-recently he retained his belt inside 90 seconds by demolishing Andrew Robinson in October.
