Derevyanchenko: I Look Forward To Fighting Golovkin Next!

MIAMI, OK. - Sergiy Derevyanchenko (11-0, 9 KOs) remained unbeaten as he stopped Tureano Johnson (20-2, 14 KOs) in the 12th and final round of their middleweight world title eliminator that headlined a special Friday night edition of Premier Boxing Champions TOE-TO-TOE TUESDAYS on FS1 and BOXEO DE CAMPEONES on FOX Deportes
 
Derevyanchenko put himself in line for a world title shot with an impressive stoppage of the durable contender Johnson in their bout from Main Street - in front of historic Coleman Theater - in Miami, Oklahoma.
 
"I'm very happy with my performance," said Derevyanchenko. "I did exactly what we worked on in training and broke him down to get the knockout."
 
"I'm very disappointed," said Johnson. "But I give a lot of credit to Derevyanchenko and congratulate him on his performance tonight."

Johnson was aggressive from the start, positioning himself right in front of his opponent while trying to throw punches from orthodox and southpaw stances. Derevyanchenko was able to sustain the pressure and use a steady jab to create enough space to unload big power shots on Johnson.
 
The third round saw Derevyanchenko's offense break through as he was able to land multiple punches to the head while Johnson could only try to cover up. After falling behind in the first half of the fight, Johnson upped the aggression in rounds six and seven and was able to have more success landing series of hooks through Derevyanchenko's own offense.
 
However, in round eight Derevyanchenko returned to relying on his jab and was once again able to create the space to land strong shots and got the best of multiple exchanges. Derevyanchenko continued to show off impressive combos until finally breaking down Johnson for good in the 12th round with a ferocious combination that included three clean left hooks to the head.
 
"He was very tough and took a lot of punches," said Derevyanchenko. "Maybe the fight could have been stopped earlier but I was always ready to go the distance."
 
Johnson was sent down and referee Gary Ritter immediately called a halt to the bout 40 seconds into the final round.
 
"I'm ready to fight the winner of Golovkin vs. Canelo for the title," said Derevyanchenko. "I think that Golovkin will win and I look forward to fighting him next."

Too early for GGG, he is not ready. Should fight Lemieux or Jermall.

Trout beat Charlo that night and GGG would be Charlos worst nightmare. No problems for G man once he starts landing his jab.

[QUOTE=Diego Rodriguez;17983871]The Golovkin haters won't ever be happy. I think Charlo is a very good fighter but you dare say he should fight before Golovkin who he might not get to face until late 2018 or worst case 2019 and…
