Lou DiBella, promoter of the Ukrainian contender for the middleweight title (up to 72.6 kg) Serhiy Derevyanchenko (13-2-0, 10 KO) believes that his ward has every chance of winning on points in the upcoming fight against American Jermall Charlo (30- 0-0, 22 KO).
“Charlo has never fought someone as tough as Sergei. Look, Sergei knows what he needs to do and his coaches have done a good job. The only thing is he sways for too long. The guy is a techie, and he needs time to adjust to his opponent. At this time, he is careless, which is why he flew in a couple of times.
He needs to start faster and not get hit. And the further the battle goes, the more difficult it will be for Jermall. If the fight goes all the way, and Sergei does not hit the floor, then he will win, “- said DiBella.
