Jermall Charlo and Sergiy Derevyanchenko both confident of success ahead of Saturday’s fight
The titlist and the challenger both have something to prove on Saturday night.
Jermall Charlo is facing what most believe will be easily the biggest test of his pro career to date, as he’s set to defend his WBC middleweight title this Saturday night against Sergiy Derevyanchenko in a Showtime PPV co-main event.
Charlo (30-0, 22 KO) and Derevyanchenko (13-2, 10 KO) both displayed a lot of confidence at Wednesday’s final press conference. For the 30-year-old Charlo, who has held titles at 154 and 160, this is a fight about proving he’s truly an elite fighter, which is something that many fans and critics are still skeptical about.

“This is just the beginning for me. There have been 30 fighters who’ve tried to beat me, and all 30 failed,” Charlo said. “We’ll get a chance to get in there and do what we do best on Saturday. The talk is cheap. We’ll see where that green belt goes on Saturday.
Charlo believes that the 34-year-old Derevyanchenko may, in fact, be too confident, perhaps mostly in the fact that Derevyanchenko has had high-level experience in two very competitive losses to Daniel Jacobs and Gennadiy Golovkin.
Both fighters have been off all of 2020, mostly due to the coronavirus pandemic and restrictions. Charlo last fought in Dec. 2019, while Derevyanchenko has been off 11 months following the loss to GGG. But Derevyanchenko isn’t concerned about ring rust.
