Andrade Defeats Cape, Vlasov Outpoints Mouton

andrade452354.jpgBy Manuel Perez: Light middleweight prospect Demetrius Andrade (1-0, 1 KOs) destroyed a badly over-matched Patrick Cape (4-3, 2 KOs) in a 2nd round TKO on Thursday night at the Northern Quest Casino, in Airway Heights, Washington. Andrade, a 2008 Olympian boxer for the U.S., put on an impressive display of accurate power-punching, dropping Cape twice near the end of the first round. After the second knockdown at the start of the 2nd round, a long left to the head, referee Paul Field stopped the fight at 0:24 of the round. Andrade, 20, had a significant speed and size advantage over Cape, who normally fights at welterweight.

The southpaw Andrade battered the smaller Cape around the ring at the start of the 1st round, hitting him with straight left hands and powerful body shots. The speed difference between the two of them was startling, as Andrade showed speed similar to Jermain Taylor, although not quite as good combinations.
