Keeler on Andrade’s Hype
In a recent interview with BadLeftHook.com, Luke Keeler had this to say: “He’s really talking himself up,”. “I don’t know if he believes it or he’s a bit deluded, but he hasn’t produced it in the ring yet. He hasn’t really fought anyone elite, I think he is going to overlook me and I think he is that deluded that he believes he’s one of the greatest and he just has to turn up to win. That’s going to count against him and I am taking that belt with both hands.”
“I want to win his world title and move on,” he said. “Some of these guys go in respecting him too much, fear him in there, and I am going in there to rip it from him. He talks about being the best middleweight out there, but he hasn’t proven it yet, and I will prove him wrong on the night.”
