IBO middleweight titles and the IBF will be on the Lineup this Saturday night in Madison Square Garden in New York.
Competing for the 2 straps are GennadyGGG Golovkin and SergiyThe Tech Derevyanchenko. Golovkin, the Kazakhstan indigenous, is a -550 favorite with all the Ukraine indigenous, Derevyanchenko.
This is going to be the next time in the previous three fights and the second time ever that Derevyanchenko was a betting underdog. The fighter was a slight +155 puppy against Daniel Jacobs October and missing that bout in a very contentious split decision. Prior to this garbage, The Tech was undefeated, preferred onto a six-fight finish series and his bouts in all.
GGG is again a popular if he was a little -105 underdog coming straight back at -125 as hes been for most of his career out of the Canelo Alvarez rematch. Outside of this Canelo fights, Golovkin was a sizable favorite in every bout and holds a record with 35 wins coming by knockout. In 2 choices that he went 0-1-1 From the two Canelo fights.
GGG likes to have with his opponents in dogfights backing them in a corner looking to let his hands fly that is thick. He had a 23-fight knockout streak until Daniel Jacobs went the full 12 rounds??but lost by decision.
Not only does Golovkin have punching power that is intense but he has very excellent head movement when he is in the pocket at trades, doing a fantastic job of preventing the shots of his opponents. One negative aspect of GGGs protector is that he doesnt protect the body and may often be targeted on there, although we have seen it wear him down.
The Technician has yells that are rather accurate and he adopts them behind lunging movements and jabs. Even the Ukraine native does a wonderful job during his flurries to combine up his punches reduced and high with speed and power that is deceptive.
He frustrated Jacobs in their bout over and over repeatedly by minding the body maybe a little too close to the beltline. In exchanges, Derevyanchenko has to do a better job at bringing back his gloves as he will trade punch but thats a game with GGG.
Two fighters that prefer to have into a telephone booth and exchange hands. The Technician might have a small advantage in hand pace, but??he tends to timber and defensively there are a few holes. Meanwhile, the GGG is going to have the advantage in footwork, power and general defense.
Prediction: Gennady Golovkin (-550) via knockout
