By Barry Holbook:. Golovkin (39-1-1, 35 KOs) weighed in at 170.2 lbs on his first weigh-in try, and he then stripped down and made the weight at 170 lbs. For his part, Derevyanchenko successfully made weight.

real drama show

With his new trainer Johnathon Banks, Golovkin is re-energized, and looking to win back his 160-lb title that he lost in 2018. The title was stripped from Golovkin when he failed to defend it against mandatory Derevyanchenko.

GGG vs. Derevyanchenko is even fight on says DiBella

Daniel Jacobs, and Derevyanchenko looked better against him than GGG.

Derevyanchenko lost to Jacobs by a 12 round split decision in October 2018, but the results were controversial. Of the two, Derevyanchenko looked like the better fighter at the end, but the A-side guy Jacobs was given the victory. At best, you can call it a draw, but definitely not a win for Jacobs. Derevyanchenko was the superior fighter in that contest. His inside game was incredible, and a lot better that we saw from Saul Canelo Alvarez against GGG in their rematch last September.
