Sites Set Firmly On Tsypko
Super Middle Not Stuck On Bute Rematch
By William Trillo
On April 14th in Montreal Canada Librado Andrade will take on
Vitali Tsypko in a bout that will put the winner next in line
for a crack at Lucien Bute. Obviously many would love to see an
Bute and Andrade hook up again but itís not imperative for
Andrade. In fact, Andrade has one thing on his mind, a World
Title. Whether or not it comes through Bute or not is
insignificant to Librado. To him all that matters is that belt
around his waist.

You are fighting Vitali Tsypko for the IBF mandatory shot
against Lucien Bute. How important is getting another shot at
Bute for you?
The fight with Bute ended very very strange and unsatisfying for
many reasons, just as it was strange for me I am sure it is the
same for him. He said he made a mistake, but I don't think so.
If there is one that made a mistake it was me, I let him do
everything he wanted to do. He could take me out and I was too
patient with him until the 10th, 11th and 12th round. He made no
mistakes I just got to him late but, I did get to him! So Iím
going to be meÖ if I fight him, fine, if I donítÖwell my goal is
to became a world champion, I donít care who is in front of me
to do it. I will try every minute of every round to do so. I
would like to fight Bute because there could be a good money
fight there, but if he donít want to fight me again then I go
This fight is in Montreal, can you talk about fighting in Canada
I love it here the people here have really made it feel like it
is home. I really would like to thank every one here in
Montreal, Canada. I have found a family in the Grant brothers
with Howard and Otis and their families, that makes a big
difference. And boxing fans here are great, I am happy to be
I know you are not overlooking Tyspko, tell us what you know
I know very little about him. I have only seen him fight against
Jeff lacy and he did great, I tought he won or at least it was a
draw. I donít overlook any one! There is no next fight, there is
only this one and this one is Typpko. I donít have anything
against anyone. I do this for a living and I want to win and
take the lessons learned to do better in the future. Iím sure he
knows me and he will prepare to beat me, so that will make a
good fightÖthat is all I know.
What would you like to tell your fans while you train for this
April 4th unifier fight?
Thank you guys so much. It really feels nice to know that people
are behind me. And you guys are from Montreal come and have fun
because it will be a good fight.
