Lou DiBella, promoter of Ukrainian middleweight title contender (up to 72.6 kg) Serhiy Derevyanchenko (13-2-0, 10 KO), talking about refereeing in the upcoming fight against American Jermall Charlo (30-0-0, 22 KO), remembered about the meeting of his ward with the Kazakh star Gennady Golovkin.
“We need a fair refereeing. When I sat with Sergei in the hospital after the fight with Golovkin, my heart was bleeding. By the way, Golovkin was lying there, and he looked worse than Sergei. I really thought that Sergei won.
What really depressed Sergei was that he played for the second time on the territory of an opponent, and the organization did not depend on us. Otherwise, he could have been given both the fight with Golovkin and the fight with Jacobs. I think most people saw him win the fight against GGG, “said DiBella.
