Andrade stops Akavov to retain WBO middleweight title

NEW YORK (AP) Demetrius Andrade had such an easy time in the first defense of his WBO middleweight title that his opponent might have done his best fighting while shoving away the referee who had finally put a stop to it.

Andrade sounds ready for something tougher.

He remained unbeaten Friday night, stopping Russia's Artur Akavov in the 12th round, and afterward said he would "destroy" former champion Gennady Golovkin.
