Ukrainian boxer Sergiy Derevyanchenko and WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo held a traditional face-off on the verge of their upcoming bout.

"I like the green color of the WBC belt. I want this green belt. I fought for the title twice, but this time I am ready for 100%. It was nice to have a break after the fight with Gennadiy Golovkin. I had a good rest. I relaxed, but when I returned to the United States, I was ready to train and now I am just ready to fight. All of these things helped me. I am going to put pressure on Charlo right from the beginning. I am going to use my legs, my jab, and combinations in order to win. It is a great battle. When I win, it will open even more opportunities for me. I will be able to unify belts and take my career to a new level," Derevyanchenko said.
