Derevyanchenko vs Culcay FULL FIGHT: April 13, 2019 - PBC on FS1

  • Published: 14 May 2019
  • In 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."

          both these guys are excellent fighters. Often overlooked as well. Both technically sound and exciting. Both fighters have fought and been tested against some of the best in the business. I hope to see them fight more. So this is an IBF title eliminator? Meaning Derevyenchenko could face Canelo?

                      if charlo really wants to fight canelo he should fight sergiy derevyanchenko for the mandatory title for the IBF. he already has the #1 for the WBC, but no he gonna fight a dude named brandon adams yet he claims "cinammon is ducking him"

                        You wont get charlo take on another dangerous opponent, because he got a rude awakening in his last bout, the most he shouldve gotten from his recent fight is a draw, he certainly wont give that fella a rematch.

                          Surgey no es una cosa de otro mundo. Es bastante lento, no veo combinaciones y baja la defensa y le pegan mucho en su lado derecho en su rostro. Jacobs no debe tener problema alguno en superarlo.

                                    Very good, solid, world class fighters, but they lack that "it" factor that elites Canelo, GGG, or Miracle Man have. Korobov is another solid fighter not to be overlooked.

                                          Culcay was surprisingly 'on,' while Derevyanchenko was surprisingly mushy and wobbly. Looked like a draw or a Culcay win to me.

                                            @Adrian Garza except canelo was never in any serious trouble with jacobs and is actually getting criticized for not stopping jacobs. deverencko does not have any advantages over canelo in terms of skill, speed, size or reach.

                                                        @TieFighter34, The real cherry pick was fighting a career 54 lber off a loss and a two year layoff instead of dropping a world title to avoid the risk.

                                                        @TieFighter34, That would make no sense. I would give him credit for fighting his mandatory. Dropping a belt to avoid a mandatory is the definition of ducking.

                                                        @Xavier the Boxing Nerd ha ha! he did not duck Segey at all. He would have destroyed him easy and then you GGG haters would have said it was another cherry pick.

                                                      Culcay is a very underrated fighter

                                                        @LRchigga hi I'm from Russia. In my opinion Derevyachenko won fight against Jacobs by 114/113. Sergei good technical boxer with amateur experience. Canelo can get a problem with Derevyachenko.

                                                        @Shaun Fitt Culcay could win a WBC diamond belt easy or be a contender.

                                                        @Matthew Anthony What the fuck is youre point. Lierally had a paragraph and didnt make on. " derveychenko seemed to have more success than Canelo did but Jacobs also had success vs derveychenko were he didn’t with Canelo" Doesnt even make sense dumbass.
