Gennady Golovkin vs. Sergiy Derevyanchenko Preview
Golovkin is 39-1-1 with 35 knockouts coming into this fight. He was the unified middleweight title holder between 2010 and 2018, and GGG has long been regarded as one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world.
GGG turned pro in May 2006 and he won his first 18 fights before getting a title shot. He squared off against Milton Nunez in Panama for the WBA interim middleweight title and knocked Nunez out in the first round. That set off a string of incredible knockouts that left the boxing world buzzing about Golovkin.
He knocked out 11 of his next 12 opponents inside of eight rounds, and he strung together 18 straight knockouts in title defenses. GGG laid waste to the middleweight division over a span of eight years, holding all four belts for long stretches.
Golovkin was 37-0 before he fought Canelo Alvarez to a draw two years ago. The result was highly controversial as it appeared that GGG had done enough to win the fight, and he outpunched Alvarez in 10 of the 12 rounds. The decision led to a rematch which ended in even more controversy as Golovkin sustained the first loss of his career.
Alvarez won a majority decision despite Golovkin outpunching Alvarez throughout the fight. Of the media outlets scoring the fight, 17 of the 18 didn’t think that Alvarez had done enough to win the bout, and GGG took out his frustration on his last opponent. He knocked out Steve Rolls in four rounds in June, setting up a fight with Derevyanchenko that has been in the works for a couple years.
Derevyanchenko participated in the World Series of Boxing from 2010 to 2014, and he didn’t turn pro until July 2014 when he was 28. His reputation from the amateur ranks preceded him and due to his age, he was quickly sped through the ranks.
He won his first 12 fights to earn a title shot against Daniel Jacobs in October 2018. The two boxed for the vacant IBF middleweight title with Jacobs winning by split decision. Derevyanchenko bounced back from his first loss to beat Jack Culcay by unanimous decision in April 2019. That led to Derevyanchenko becoming the mandatory challenger for the IBF title, but his camp and Alvarez could not come to terms. Alvarez was stripped of his title, so now Derevyanchenko and Golovkin will fight for the strap.
