  • Comments Thread For: IBF Orders Johnson-Derevyanchenko Eliminator For Golovkin Shot

    BoxingScene.com has learned that the IBF has ordered a middleweight championship elimination match between Tureano Johnson and Sergiy Derevyanchenko. Johnson has until Friday to accept this challenging eliminator or he'll be dropped from the top spot in the IBF's 160-pound rankings. If the Bahamas-based boxer agrees to face Ukraine's Derevyanchenko by Friday, representatives for the No. 1-ranked Johnson (Golden Boy Promotions) and the No. 2-ranked Derevyanchenko (Lou DiBella) will be granted a negotiating period to make a fight that would determine the mandatory challenger for IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs).

        The great thing about this move is that even though GGG has an IBF mando due, this buys some time. Now he can fight Canelo without getting stripped, then maybe unify with Saunders, and THEN either do the IBF mando or move up.

          Derevyanchenko, Charlo, Murata, Canelo and a Jacobs rematch? GGG mega fans think he wins all those fights.

            As a GGG fan I'm just happy he has a lot of compelling matchups coming down the pike.
