Derevyanchenko-Jacobs will take place on October 27 in The Theater at Madison Square Garden. Last month, promoters Eddie Hearn (Jacobs) and Lou DiBella (Derevyanchenko) reached an agreement moments before this IBF-mandated middleweight championship match went to purse bid July 10.

HBO will air Derevyanchenko-Jacobs as part of Jacobs’ contract with that premium cable network.

Ukraine’s Derevyanchenko (12-0, 10 KOs) and Brooklyn’s Jacobs (34-2, 29 KOs) will fight for the 160-pound championship the IBF stripped from Gennady Golovkin on June 6.

Derevyanchenko, 32, is the IBF’s top-ranked middleweight contender and was Golovkin’s mandatory challenger. Jacobs, 31, is rated No. 3 by the IBF, but he is its next available contender to battle Derevyanchenko because the No. 2 spot in its rankings is vacant.

Maybe you just don't understand the business of boxing. Golovkin to put off making a mandatory defense of his IBF middleweight title against Derevyanchenko because he’ll make much more money for his rematch with Canelo Alvarez. [QUOTE=Bjl12;19044833]Scared enough he fought…

This is a very good match-up and a great opportunity for the Ukranian to make a name for himself. I still think Jacobs wins this fight.
