.@SDerevyanchenko was a brilliant amateur, on the level of Breland, GGG, and Rigondeaux. I’ve always said he was an elite professional, a championship caliber fighter. Never been in a bad fight. The numbers below speak loudly in #boxing. I’m privileged to have worked with him.
Derevyanchenko outlanded GGG (183-136), Charlo (163-134) in power punches and was even at 137 vs. Jacobs, losing all 3 fights. He was outlanded 219-180 vs. Charlo; 243-230 vs. GGG & 181-160 vs. Jacobs in total punches- a deficit of only 73 punches @ShowtimeBoxing @premierboxing
You and I both, if he’s going to fight on. Size was a big issue tonight, and Sergiy would immediately be a major player if he can get to 154.
Depending on what he has left in the tank, I'd love to see Derevyanchenko at 154 pounds.
