Junior middleweight Demtrius Andrade this past Saturday ran his record to 23-0 with 16 knockouts by decking Willie Nelson four times, eventually stopping Nelson in the 12th round at Turning Stone Resort & Casino in Verona, N.Y.
A few days before the fight, Andrade was asked to talk about Muhammad Ali. By the time Andrade was done, it was easy to determine what he thought of Ali, who died June 3 at age 74.
Andrade, 28, is from Providence, R.I. He is a former WBO champion who was stripped of his belt for inactivity.
