Gennady Golovkin defeated Sergiy Derevyanchenko on Saturday night in their middleweight bout at Madison Square Garden in New York, New York. This was a controversial win for Golovkin, as it can be debated that Derevyanchenko could have easily won as well.

Regardless, Golovkin won by unanimous decision. Two judges had a 115-112 score, while the third judge had a 114-112 card.

Golovkin is a title holder once again with the win. He won the vacant International Boxing Federation World Middleweight Title and the vacant International Boxing Organization World Middleweight Title.

Triple G, as he is commonly known, improved to 40-1-1 in his career. But one thing was evident in this bought that his power was not there.

He also had trouble with Derevyanchenko’s relentlessness throughout.

This was Golovkin’s first unanimous decision win since his fight against Daniel Jacobs in 2017. That fight was also at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Golovkin is 2-0 at The Garden this year. He defeated Steve Rolls at the facility back in June in his first bout back after losing a majority decision to Saúl [Canelo] Álvarez in Sept. 2018.

This is Derevyanchenko’s second career loss. He fell to 13-2 in his career with the loss. The Ukraine native — who now resides in Brooklyn, New York — has lost two his last three fights.

Both of Derevyanchenko’s losses have come at The Garden in the Big Apple.
