Gennadiy Golovkin vs. Sergiy Derevyanchenko predictions Who will win?

At this point, it’s the only question worth asking: Who will win Saturday night’s middleweight world title bout between Gennadiy Golovkin and Sergiy Derevyanchenko at Madison Square Garden in New York?

Golovkin (39-1-1, 35 KOs) is coming off a dominant fourth-round KO victory over Steve Rolls in June. Derevyanchenko (13-1, 10 KOs) recovered from a split decision loss to Daniel Jacobs a year ago with a unanimous decision victory over Jack Culcay in April.

Who takes the win? Our experts make their picks.

Dan Rafael

Golovkin by KO
GGG might not be at his peak but he’s still a very formidable fighter with crushing power. Derevyanchenko is a good contender and figures to hang in there for a while but this one ends like most GGG fights — in a knockout. GGG by mid-round KO.

Golovkin by TKO
Sergiy will come very prepared and will provide some resistance against GGG. There will be some rocky moments for Golovkin early but his persistence, power and experience will prevail. GGG with a late stoppage inside 10 rounds.

Golovkin late TKO
Golovkin’s power will eventually take its toll after some stubborn resistance from Derevyanchenko. GGG may adopt a more patient and attritional approach to get the job done.

Golovkin by KO
Derevyanchenko showed his good game against Jacobs while also showing a lack of defense that will not bode well for him against Golovkin. GGG’s straight punches beat his wide ones and lead to a late-round stoppage for Golovkin.

Nigel CollinsNigel Collins

Golovkin by unanimous decision
Derevyanchenko is good enough to give Golovkin a competitive fight, but not good enough to beat him. It won’t be as close as Derevyanchenko’s split decision loss to Daniel Jacobs. Golovkin is quicker, punches harder and is a superior boxer.

Steve KimSteve Kim

Golovkin by TKO7
This is a fight that will really tell us where a 37-year-old Golovkin is, as he is facing a legitimate top 10 middleweight. Derevyanchenko brings a very favorable style for GGG. He wont be hard to find, and he’s not that mobile or that quick. And with that, Golovkin will be able to land his jab early and often, then break down Derevyanchenko and score a seventh-round TKO.
