Charlo and Derevyanchenko teams agrees to terms
The teams of the WBC middleweight champion Germall Charlo (30-0, 22 KOs) and Sergiy Derevyanchenko (13-2, 10 KOs) reached an agreement on the organization of the fight, which will be held in September or October in the United States. Official confirmation of the date of the fight is expected in the near future.
For Derevyanchenko, this will be a return to the ring after last year’s defeat at the hands of Gennady Golovkin. The Ukrainian lost after an equal fight on points, despite the fact that he was on the floor in the first round. Then Derevyanchenko began to catch up and several times noticeably hurt the boxer from Kazakhstan.
30-year-old Charlo boxed for the last time in December, having won by technical knockout over Dennis Hogan. Derevyanchenko recently tried to meet Saul Alvarez, but the Mexican camp ultimately decided to choose a cheaper rival.
