BEIJING -- The opening act was not pretty for Demetrius Andrade but it was effective as he outscored Kakhaber Jvania of the Republic of Georgia, 11-9 in the first round of the welterweight division today at Boxing Workers’ Gymnasium.

The lefthander from Providence started slow as the Georgian’s plan of attack was to crowd and attempted to brawl against the disciplined top-ranked fighter.

Throughout the bout there was a series of missed shots and plenty of clinches in the four-round bout.

Andrade advances to fight Russia’s Andrey Balanov Thursday in the second round.
