2019 Gennady Golovkin vs. Sergiy Derevyanchenko - Madison Square Garden
After former middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez couldn't agree on a purse bid with challenger Derevyanchenko, GGG and the mandatory challenger Derevyanchenko agreed to terms for the October bout.
Golovkin heads into the bout after destroying Canadian Steve Rolls in a 4th round knockout in June 2019. After calling out Alvarez to a trilogy fight and nothing to come of it, GGG will have a chance to become IBF middleweight champion once again since losing the belt to Alvarez in 2018. Derevyanchenko lost an initial vacated IBF title bout to Daniel Jacobs in late 2018 and earned the "number one contender" moniker after defeating Jack Culcay in April 2019, which set up the potential bout between Alvarez and the Ukraine native.
