Gennady Golovkin found a way to overcome a determined Sergiy Derevyanchenko in a thrilling battle on Saturday night. The fight was for the vacant IBF and IBO middleweight titles, from Madison Square Garden in New York, with DAZN televising in the US and Sky Sports in the UK.

Golovkin and Derevyanchenko shared 12 brutal and memorable rounds with one another in what has to be considered one of the top fights of 2019. After scoring a knockdown in the first, Golovkin had to weather a fierce rally from Derevyanchenko for several rounds after, taking some punishing body and head shots along the way.

On Saturday night, lightweight contender Devin Haney (22-0 14 KOs) faces Zaur Abdullaev (11-0 7 KOs) for the Interim WBC World Lightweight title inside of the Hulu Theater in Madison Square Garden, New York. The fight will air live on DAZN in the US and on Sky Sports in the UK.

Haney, still just 20 years old, will likely call out unified lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko if he is victorious. Lomachenko recently defeated Luke Campbell over 12 rounds in England, and Haney has been mentioning the matchup as a preference of his. If the two ever meet, it would be one of the more intriguing matchups in the sport, a great youth vs. experience type of fight.

On Saturday night, April 20, WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford successfully defended his title for a second time with a sixth round TKO over former champion Amir Khan. The fight, which took place on ESPN pay per view from Madison Square Garden in New York, may not have ended how Crawford wanted or expected, but his perfect record and lofty goals are still intact.

Crawford dropped Khan in the first round and had a commanding lead midway through. In frame six, an accidental low blow from Crawford put Khan down, with the British star and his corner electing not to continue, granting the champion with a TKO victory.

We are inching closer to boxing’s next significant showdown, as WBO welterweight champion Terence Crawford will face off with former world champion Amir Khan on Saturday night from Madison Square Garden in New York. While Crawford (34-0, 25 KO’s) is understandably a huge favorite heading into the fight, Khan (33-4, 20 KO’s) does have enough experience, speed, and skills to at least make the ESPN pay per view matchup interesting.

During Wednesday’s final press conference, Crawford revealed that this is far from just an ordinary showcase for him.

On Saturday night, Dec. 15, Mexican superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (51-1-2, 35 KO’s) easily dispatched former champion Rocky Fielding (27-2, 15 KO’s) on his way to collecting the WBA super middleweight title. The fight took place from the Madison Square Garden in New York and was showcased on the DAZN streaming app.

Canelo’s relentless body work proved to be too much, as he registered knockdowns in every round, two in the third and ultimately final round, before the contest was waved off. The fight was a mismatch on paper and Canelo did his part to prove odds makers correct.

Earlier this week, we swung through the training camp of WBA lightweight champion Jorge Linares, out in Las Vegas. Linares (44-3, 27 KO’s) is preparing for a huge fight against two-division world champion Vasyl Lomachenko (10-1, 8 KO’s), who he meets on May 12 inside of New York’s Madison Square Garden on ESPN.

Linares is an underdog heading into the match, and it was recently revealed that he would not be having longtime trainer Ismael Salas in his corner, as the Cuban trainer is overseas working with David Haye ahead of his May 5 rematch vs. Tony Bellew. Still, Linares’ spirits in camp are great, as he works with his brother Carlos Linares, trainer Jorge Capetillo, and Southern California’s Rudy Hernandez, a longtime staple in the sport.

Moments ago, inside of Madison Square Garden in New York, WBO junior lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko (10-1, 8 KO’s) scored a one-sided TKO victory over Cuban marvel and WBA junior featherweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (17-1, 11 KO’s).

Lomachenko, 29, was simply too big, too precise, and too skilled for Rigondeaux, 37, who had no answers for his Ukrainian foe. Following the sixth round, Rigondeaux elected not to come out for another round and the bout was waved off.
