The duel between former world champion at Middleweight, Gennady Golovkin and Sergey Derevyanchenko may be announced in the near future.
Representatives of the boxers are at the final stage of agreeing the main terms of the transaction. However, the date and the venue are still unknown.
Gennady – star international level. He is the embodiment of world champion. I’m sure he will consider the proposal on the encounter in Saudi Arabia. In the presence of a worthy opponent, offers and promotion I can easily imagine the performance of Golovkin in the region. We received many great proposals from Saudi Arabia and other Middle East countries about Megaview,
– said Golovkin’s promoter Tom Leffler.
The fight Golovkin – Derevyanchenko will take place on 5 October. Earlier it was reported that the fight was planned to take place in new York.
Sport 24 wrote that Derevyanchenko wants to get at least 5.5 million dollars for the fight against Golovkin. Derevyanchenko had not earned in battle more than 500 thousand dollars. Therefore, its likely fight for the IBF title will bring Sergei highest earnings.
Derevyanchenko has become a mandatory Challenger for a world title fight in April, winning by decision of judges Jack Kulka. After that, he climbed to first place in the IBF ranking.
