Derevyanchenko in an interview after the fight did not challenge the decision of the judges. Adames entered the bout as No. 9 in the junior middleweight and Derevyanchenko as No. 2 in the middleweight division.

Despite the fact that one of the judges assessed the meeting as a draw, it was Adames who controlled the fight and made the 37-year-old Derevyanchenko look clearly old for his age. Adames turned out to be too fast and delivered more impressive strikes, and Derevyanchenko often chased the enemy hopelessly. Derevyanchenko had his chances, but Adames always defended well and regained control of the fight with his long range, excellent speed and fast footwork.
