As I wrote earlier this week, but this would be an incredibly disappointing matchup, as Derevyanchenko just is not on Canelo’s level. Especially given there have been rumors Canelo could be getting in the ring with the dangerous Sergey Kovalev next.
Fighting the mostly-unknown Derevyanchenko would also ensure the boxing world would have to wait even longer for the trilogy fight between Canelo and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin. Which is still the money fight to be made in the sport. A fight against Derevyanchenko would be easy, lackluster, and a waste of time.
