Gennadiy Golovkin and Sergiy Derevyanchenko battle Saturday, Oct. 5, at Madison Square Garden in New York City for the vacant IBF middleweight title.
Golovkin (39-1-1, 35 KOs) rebounded from his first career loss to Canelo Alvarez in September 2018 to score a fourth-round knockout over Steve Rolls in June. He'll look to get win No. 40 against Derevyanchenko (13-0, 10 KOs), who enters as a sizable underdog.
Derevyanchenko was unsuccessful in his first attempt to win a world title, losing by split decision to Daniel Jacobs in October 2018. But the 33-year-old came back with a unanimous decision win against Jack Culcay in April.
