  Andrade & Ornelas Hit Leon, Mexico
By William Trillo

Super middleweight brothers Librado Andrade and Enrique Ornelas landed in their home state of Guanajuato, Mexico on Tuesday and now are only days away from their homecoming fight in Leon. The tandem were greeted at the airport by a slew of media and fans who are excited to see their heroes fight on Saturday night. Andrade will face Canada's Matt O'Brien for the vacant WBC Intercontinental Super Middleweight Title. The co-feature will pit Ornelas against Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico's Alfredo Contreras in a 10 round light heavyweight contest.

After leaving the airport it was off to check in at the hotel where they received a stack of posters announcing the big card.

It wasn't all play though as the guys hit the gym on Tuesday night to get in the customary workout and roadwork. It's going to be a busy week ahead and Pound4Pound will be there to bring you all the events leading up to the fight.
