Golovkin vs Derevyanchenko: Who will win?
The history behind the vacant IBF middleweight title is fairly convoluted. Golovkin himself won it back in 2015 after defeating David Lemieux. He went on to defend it against big names like Kell Brook, Daniel Jacobs and Canelo Alvarez.
However, in Spring 2018, he was stripped of the title for not fighting IBF mandatory challenger Derevyanchenko. Despite some talk of Golovkin and Derevyanchenko coming face-to-face, the event didn’t pan out.
Meanwhile, Derevyanchenko, nicknamed The Technician, turned full pro in 2014. He won several fights before finally getting his crack at a world title at the end of last year. He fought Daniel Jacobs for the IBF middleweight title and lost.
The title went from Jacobs to Alvarez, who was stripped of it in August after failing to negotiate terms for a bout against Derevyanchenko. As a result, both Golovkin and Derevyanchenko should be pretty eager to win the upcoming bout.
Golovkin has the important advantage of experience, but both fighters have a chance to win the bout.

Unbeaten Saunders held the WBO middleweight championship when the other major divisional belts were Golovkin’s, but a fight to crown an undisputed champion never materialised.
Saunders, now the WBO super-middleweight champion, has since linked up with promoter Eddie Hearn and said at the time: “I’d fight Golovkin at whatever weight he wants. I could show people how easily I could beat him and out-box. I could do a better job than Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.”
Golovkin’s only career defeat came to Canelo last year, after a draw in their first fight.

Saunders has now identified Canelo, who first fights Sergey Kovalev on November 2, as his dream fight for next May’s Mexican holiday.
“I would take pleasure in ruining Cinco de Mayo for the Mexican fans,” Saunders said.
Kazakhstan’s Golovkin is also working with promoter Hearn, who still sees him in major fights next year.
Hearn said: “You’ve got Demetrius Andrade. I would love Demetrius Andrade to fight Golovkin or Canelo. We’ve got Saunders at 168 [lbs]. Has the ability to come back down to 160 [lbs]. Danny Jacobs is fighting at 168, but probably could still make 160. If those guys want to move up, you’ve got Callum Smith as well.
“I think the key in 2020 is get all those fights made. I would love to see Golovkin and Canelo, but ultimately Canelo will decide who he fights, and right now, Golovkin is not on that list frustratingly for us.”
