The IBF and IBO??middleweight titles will be on the line this Saturday night in Madison Square Garden in New York.

Competing for the two belts are GennadyGGG Golovkin and SergiyThe Technician Derevyanchenko. The Kazakhstan native, Golovkin, is now a favored Derevyanchenko, with the Ukraine native , coming straight back in +375.
This will be the second time ever and the second time in the previous three fights that Derevyanchenko has been a gambling underdog. The 13-1 fighter dropped that bout at a split decision and was a dog against Daniel Jacobs final October. Prior to this garbage, The Technician was undefeated, favorite on a finish streak and his bouts in all.
Meanwhile, he GGG is a popular since hes been for most of his career outside the Canelo Alvarez rematch if he was a slight -105 underdog using Alvarez coming back at -125. Outside of this Canelo struggles, Golovkin holds a record with 35 wins coming by knockout and was a big favorite in each bout. In the two Canelo fightsthat he went.
GGG likes to get with his opponents in dogfights , constantly backing them into a corner searching to allow his hands fly that is thick. He had a knockout streak till Daniel Jacobs went the entire 12 rounds??but lost by choice.
Does Golovkin have intense punching power but he has good head motion when hes in the pocket in trades, doing a fantastic job of preventing the shots of his opponents. One negative aspect of the protector of GGG is that though we have seen it wear down him he does not shield the body and may frequently be targeted there.
The Tech has shouts behind lunging quick jabs and movements, and he adopts them nicely. Even the Ukraine native does a wonderful job throughout his flurries to combine his punches up high and reduced with energy and exceptional speed.
By minding the body Jacobs within their bout defeated over and over again. In exchanges, Derevyanchenko must do a much better job at bringing back his gloves as he will trade punch for punch but that is a game with GGG.
2 forward-pressure fighters that like to get into a telephone booth and swap hands. Defensively there are a few holes, but he tends to timber although the Technician may have a slight edge in hand pace. GGG will have the advantage in footwork energy and total defense.
