Parker Andrade Purse Bid Won By Queensberry Promotions For WBO Interim 168-Pound Championship
Frank Warren’s Queensberry Promotions have won the purse bids for the rescheduled WBO Interim Super Middleweight Title Fight between WBO #1 Zach Parker (22-0, 16 KOs) and former Middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade (31-0, 19 KOs). Queensberry won the bids by being the only bidder, they offered $305,000.
Sources tell NoSmokeBoxing that Parker and Andrade were negotiating a deal for the fight to take place on November 5 at the 9,000-capacity Nottingham Arena in England live on BT Sport. Queensberry listed Nottingham, Derby and London as 3 potential venues for Parker Andrade on Nov 5
Parker and Andrade were initially scheduled to fight on the 21st of May at the Pride Park Stadium, Derby but the American suffered a right shoulder injury which forced the bout to be postponed. The fight was not rescheduled as the WBO withdrew their sanction and there were rumours Andrade would move back down to Middleweight.
In August, Andrade relinquished his WBO title and officially moved up to 168, successfully applying to compete for the interim title with the Englishman. The European title fight between Liam Davies and Ionut Baluta will land on the undercard should the Andrade Parker fight take place on Nov 5.
