This should be a treat for fans. We rarely get to see two top undefeated champions putting it all on the line for a unification.
Many fans are wondering if Sergiy can get over the hump in his second fight for a title. Sergiy has always been a determined and focused fighter. He brings grit and Ukranian scrappiness to the ring. He has trained hard for this fight.
If Benevidez continues down the road that he is currently on he will undoubtedly get worldwide recognition in the near future. And what exactly should be the next step on that road?
On Saturday, October 5th, former unified Middleweight Champion, Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (39-1-1, 35KOs) will clash with Sergey “The Technician” Derevyanchenko (13-1, 10KOs) at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

On Friday, September 13, Devin “The Dream” Haney (22-0, 14KOs) will battle Zaur Abdullaev (11-0, 7KOs) for the WBC Interim Lightweight title at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The winner of this bout between the #2 and #3 ranked opponents, will become the WBC mandatory for (WBC,WBA,WBO) Unified Lightweight champion, Vasiliy “Hi-Tek” Lomachenko (14-1, 10KOs). Lomachenko just defeated Luke Campbell (20-3, 16KOs) for the vacant WBC title, which was vacated by Mikey Garcia (39-1, 30KOs).
Gervonta “Tank” Davis (22-0, 21KOs) has vacated his WBA (Super) Lightweight title and moved up to the stacked super lightweight division. He automatically becomes the #1 contender for the 135 pound WBA title. Will his promotion team allow him to fight Vasiliy “Hi-Tek” Lomachenko straight away?
If Lomachenko were to win this fight he would hold 3 of the 4 major titles at 135lbs and he would be one step closer to his dream of being an undisputed champion.
It’s kind of funny because GGG was originally stripped of his IBF title for not fighting then mandatory challenger, Derevyanchenko, as a late replacement for Canelo.
WBA (Super) Super Featherweight Champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis (21-0, 20KOs) will be making a mandatory title defense against Ricardo “El Cientifico” Nunez (21-2 19KOs) on Saturday, July 27 at the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore.
