A pesar de que hace unos días varios medios deportivos aseguraron que Canelo Álvarez no pelearía en septiembre, como se había dicho inicialmente, ahora está circulando una información que indica que el pugilista mexicano tendría que defender su título de los pesos medios unificado, antes de que termine el 2019, nada más ni nada menos que contra Sergey Derevyanchenko.

Así lo reveló ESPN en español, donde se afirmó que tras una reunión este martes en la sede del la llamada FIB, en el estado de Nueva Jersey, cobró fuerzas la posibilidad de que se dé ese encuentro.

Las partes encargadas de planear el combate se reunirán nuevamente el viernes para tomar una decisión final, pero todo apunta a que la firma Golden Boy Promotions, de Canelo y el promotor de Derevyanchenko, Lou DiBella pronto anunciarán el acuerdo.

El citado medio señaló que Canelo y su equipo no buscaron evitar que hubiese una pelea de defensa del título obligatoria, por lo que de no aceptar enfrentar a Derevyanchenko, podría perder el titulo.

Derevyanchenko vs Culcay HIGHLIGHTS: April 13, 2019 – PBC on FS1In the co-main event top contender Sergiy Derevyanchenko (13-1, 10 KOs) earned a hard-fought unanimous decision victory over Jack Culcay (25-4, 13 KOs) in an IBF middleweight title eliminator. The early action saw Culcay looking to box and evade the returning fire from Derevyanchenko. Culcay had success landing quick combos before rapidly circling the ring as his opponent tried to get his offense going. “I knew that he was going to move a lot,” said Derevyanchenko. “We prepared for it because we knew what kind of fighter he was. My mentality was that I had to seek and destroy.” In round four Derevyanchenko began to have more success throwing combinations to negate the movement from Culcay. After establishing the jab, he began to use a straight right hand to initiate the offense and close the distance before Culcay could retreat and relentlessly attacking him with volume punching. "My strategy was to use my jab and control the distance, because I had the height advantage,” said Derevyanchenko. “I wanted to put pressure on at the right times and fight smart.” As the fight went on and Derevyanchenko looked to be taking control, Culcay began to try to smother Derevyanchenko’s offense by crowding him on the inside. This led to more exchanges and eventually Culcay’s best moment of the fight, landing a clean right hand on the end of an exchange that nearly put Derevyanchenko on the mat. Derevyanchenko was able to weather the rocky moment and recover by the final round to stamp the victory by winning the 12th on all three judges’ cards. The final scores were 116-112 twice and 115-113. Derevyanchenko was able to win the fight with his volume, out landing Culcay 229 to 145 and out throwing him 887 to 476, while Culcay had an advantage with a 30.5% connect rate to Derevyanchenko’s 25.8%. "I thought that I won the fight,” said Culcay. “It was close but I thought I edged it by a couple of rounds. I had him hurt in the 10th round. He's a good fighter but I was close to getting him out. The judges saw it differently than I did.” "I want the big fights,” said Derevyanchenko. “I'm ready for any of the champions. I'm not backing down from anyone."

Y aunque todavía no se ha mencionado cual sería la fecha del combate, todo parece indicar que se daría a finales del año.

Hasta el momento el tema está directamente en manos de sus manejadores, por lo que ninguno de los dos pugilistas ha hecho ningún tipo de mención o comentario públicamente.
