USA welterweight boxer Demetrius Andrade will begin competing in the Olympics on Aug. 10 against The Republic of Georgia’s Kakhaber Jvania. Andrade, a Providence native, is considered the favorite in the welterweight division. Georgiev knocked off the United States’ Rock Allen at the 2004 Olympic Games. The eight members of the United States Olympic Boxing team learned their first round opponents at the official Olympic draw on Friday at the Asia Hotel.
