Sink or Shine Time for Charlo
Jermall Charlo has avoided some of the top talent within boxing for quite some time now. He’s pulled up some decent talent, but from the lower weight classes – such as Dennis Hogan but these are much lighter fighters.
At 30 Charlo, sees a chance to defeat Sergiy Derevyanchenko who is standing in his way of another title. Derevianchenko is 34, and now might be the right time to catch him in his career.
In a recent interview with BoxingInsider.com “It’s how I’m going to stop him,” explained Charlo. “Me taking on the fight already sent a message, so tune in on September 26th.”
If Charlo does indeed pick up a win here, expect eyes to finally turn to Canelo Alvarez, Demetrius Andrade and Billy Joe Saunders.
We seen what Sergiy Derevyanchenko done to Gennady Golovkin in his last fight. Who else has punished “GGG” in a fight? Not even Canelo Alvarez can make that claim.
Derevyanchenko is a tough test for Charlo. The undefeated Charlo will have to bring his A-Game and be prepared to hurt Derevyanchenko to make a statement. We’ve seen plenty of close decision wins for Charlo, that’s what Derevyanchenko will have to avoid if it goes to the judges score cards.
However, we like Sergiy Derevyanchenko’s odds as an underdog here over Jermall Charlo. Expect him to struggle with Charlo’s athleticism but outwork Charlo and live up to his reputation “The Technician”. Our early prediction is Sergiy Derevyanchenko.
