Goddammit BJS, smh. From the looks of it, the fight may still be on...which is a good thing. Why?
Put it this way, who was the most relevant opponent that Andrade's faced in his career? Martirosyan? Willie Nelson? Help me out here. As far as I'm concerned, the positive test happened a month out from the fight....that's enough time to test Saunders blood and urine.
I'm not trying to spin anything here, I'm just looking at it from a business and career standpoint for Andrade. Okay, Saunders tested positive for Olly Oxen Free or whatever and can no longer win the title....that's if they haven't already stripped him.
This is Andrade's chance to face an opponent with a name, get a title out of it (if he's victorious), and a payday. I'd say go for it and call the shots in your upcoming fight(s) when you're champion.
I swear, if they call this off, Andrade's gonna find himself down that same rabbit hole of calling guys out, waiting, then outpricing himself and fading into oblivion.
I hate when fights can't get made certain fights just can't catch a break and it's hard to tell if it's them or everyone around them
