One of boxing’s premier knockout artists, Kazakh destroyer Gennady Golovkin, gets the opportunity to once again call himself a champion tonight (Sat., Oct. 5, 2019) when he faces Ukrainian standout Sergiy Derevyanchenko for the vacant IBF Middleweight title inside Madison Square Garden in New York, New York.

MMAmania.com will deliver LIVE coverage of the main event. The DAZN broadcast (watch it) begins with the undercard at 7 p.m. ET, continues with the main card at 9 p.m., and culminates with Golovkin and Derevyanchenko entering the ring at “about 10:30 p.m. ET.”

Golovkin (39-1-1, 35 KO) had two monumental battles with Canelo Alvarez with a knockout of Vanes Martirosyan sandwiched between, settling for a bogus draw in the first and a narrow majority decision in the latter. He kicked off his DAZN career in June with a brutal knockout of Steve Rolls.

After the IBF stripped Golovkin of his title for failing to fight Derevyanchenko (13-1, 10 KO) in a timely fashion, “The Technician” took on Daniel Jacobs for the vacant belt, surviving a knockdown en route to a split decision defeat. He reclaimed his mandatory status with a decision over former champ Jack Culcay, and when Alvarez was stripped in turn, this opportunity arose.

The rest of the card features top prospects Israil Madrimov and Ali Akhmedov alongside entertaining veteran Ivan “The Beast” Baranchyk and fast-rising Pole Kamil Szeremeta.
