Ukrainian boxer in average weight Sergiy Derevianchenko commented on the situation with the fight against Saúl Álvarez for IBF world champion title.
Earlier, IBF obliged its champion to hold a fight against the Ukrainian. The term for talks has expired, and the parties have done nothing to organize the fight. The Ukrainian is convinced that Álvarez does not want to fight with him.
“I expect Álvarez to avoid me and not give me a chance despite IBF’s decision,” he said.
“Golovkin comes next on IBF list. I can’t wait to find out what decision he will make. Is he going to refuse from the fight again? Even if he is not to fight with Álvarez” in September, the Ukrainian added.
Last year, Derevyanchenko had to fight against Golovkin, but the latter refused from it. Ukrainian boxer lost the fight for IBF belt with Daniel Jacobs, who relented the title to the Mexican boxer Álvarez.
