Well-known Ukrainian promoter Alexander Krasyuk told an interesting story.

In 2018 Kazakhstan citizen Gennady Golovkin (39-1-1, 35 KO’s) held the title of world champion IBF Middleweight champion, and the organization ordered the GGG fight with the Ukrainian Sergey Derevyanchenko (13-1, 10 KO’s). Golovkin refused the duel, because of what was stripped of his belt.

31 August in the program “Big box” Krasyuk said that Golovkin’s promoter talked with him about Derevyanchenko, and heard from Krasucka words that Sergey is a dangerous fighter who can cause problems to GGG. After that, the team of Kazakhstan has decided not to fight with Ukrainian.

However, a year later, Derevyanchenko and Golovkin will meet in the ring. On the line of battle will stand all the same IBF title.
