Andrade WBA champion again, defeats Culcay in Germany.

Unbeaten former super welterweight champion Demetrius Andrade (24-0, 16 KOs) is a world champion once again. Andrade came through some tough moments but convincingly beat current WBA regular champion Jack Culcay (22-2, 11 KOs) by an outrageous split decision tonight at the Friedrich-Ebert Halle in Ludwigshafen, Germany. Andrade used his height and reach advantages to outbox Culcay in spells, but got dragged into a close quarters battle for a period before maintaining his composure to close the show comfortably ahead..  Culcay, who felt aggrieved at an amateur loss to Andrade several years ago proved tougher than expected, finishing with a strong twelfth and final session..   Scores looked acceptable at 116-112, 116-112 Andrade, until an absurd 115-113 Score for Culcay sent the verdict into a split decision..
