Former middleweight champion Gennadiy “GGG” Golovkin (39-1-1, 35 KO) returns to Madison Square Garden to face Sergiy Derevyanchenko (13-1, 10 KO) for the IBF middleweight belt.
At this point in GGG’ career, belts don’t mean quite a much as a third scrap with Canelo Álvarez would (or a bout with fellow DAZN fighter
Demetrius Andrade). Still, reclaiming the belt he lost in the lone defeat of his career should be plenty of motivation.
His opponent, Derevyanchenko, suffered his lone defeat fighting for this same belt last year against Daniel Jacobs in a close fight that proved he belongs in the ring with heavy hitters.

Golovkin has been the favorite since the opening odds came out and has held steady in around the market at about -500. Both fighters are coming off bouts in which they were heavily favored, but the market is showing some respect for Derevyanchenko who is in the +300 range at some books.
