Derevyanchenko Delivers the Performance of his Pro Career, Golovkin Walks Through Hell to Barely Edge it Out to Win IBF Title

An old school Middleweight fight broke out, as these two warriors lit up the 🏟️Madison Square Garden with sheer technique, determination and skill, shades of some of the old fights from the 1950’s. The fight went the full 12 rounds, and with uncertainty in the air as to which direction the verdict would go in, 🥈🇰🇿Gennadiy “GGG” Golovkin (40-1-1, 35KO) barely eeked out the win, despite an outstanding effort from #1 contender 🇺🇦Sergiy “The Technician” Derevyanchenko (13-2-0, 10KO) to get a razor-thin Unanimous Decision on all cards to once again hoist the IBF World Middleweight Title.  Continue reading “Derevyanchenko Delivers the Performance of his Pro Career, Golovkin Walks Through Hell to Barely Edge it Out to Win IBF Title”

GGG vs. Derevyanchenko Officially Set for a Fall Date 🗞️

It has been public knowledge for some time that by proxy, with 🇲🇽Canelo Alvarez opting to forego his mandatory responsibilities with the IBF Middleweight sanctioning body to fight their mandatory opponent, and getting stripped of that title due to those actions taking place, the roll-over would be for a classic #1 vs. #2 contender match-up.

A SKILLED MATCH-UP IN THE TALENT-RICH MIDDLEWEIGHT DIVISION

This one is for the boxing purists. Two solid Middleweights clash for the main event of the FS1 fight card to be shown on Saturday, April 13th. Ukranian Sergiy Derevyanchenko (12-1-0, 10KO) has been impressing people for many years, dating back to his amateur days, and showing out in a small sample portion of fights as a professional.

He once again proved his medal in his last fight against Daniel Jacobs, albeit it in a loss, as he pushed the universally ranked top-Middleweight to the brink and made things interesting one they got to the scorecards of that fight. He will take on another quality Middleweight, and this is a match in which Sergiy may be favored in coming into the fight.

Ecuadorian-born German citizen Jack Culcay (25-3-0, 13KO) started out at Super-Welterweight, where he managed to nab an interim title. He did drop 2 fights in a row to high ranking fighters Demetrius Andrade and Maciej Sulecki (ironically now Culcay’s counterparts in the Middleweight division). Though he came up short, he showed that he wasn’t far apart from that caliber of fighter. He will have one more go-at-it against a high ranked fighter this weekend, third times the charm? we’ll see. The televised fight-card will start at 10 P.M. EST.
