Jacobs v Derevyanchenko: Running order for New York
Below is the running order for tonight’s huge middleweight title presentation between Daniel Jacobs and Sergey Derevyanchenko.
The pair of talented punchers battle it out for the vacant IBF title recently taken from Gennady Golovkin.
The HBO Sports team will call the action, which will be available in HDTV, closed-captioned for the hearing-impaired and presented in Spanish on HBO Latino.
In an intriguing middleweight showdown, Jacobs (34-2, 29 KOs) takes on an opponent he knows well – Ukraine native Derevyanchenko (12-0, 10 KOs).
The middle bout of the telecast bout is a scheduled 12-round super featherweight title bout between Alberto Machado (20-0, 16 KOs) of Puerto Rico and Cleveland’s Yuandale Evans (20-1, 14 KOs).
Defending champ Machado, 28, is making his third HBO appearance. With back-to-back wins in 2017, the 29-year-old Evans seeks to take the title back to Ohio.
Leading off the tripleheader is a 10-round thrilling rematch of two fierce competitors: Heather Hardy of Brooklyn, NY (21-0, 4 KOs) and Shelly Vincent from Providence, RI (23-1, 1 KO). This battle renews their hot rivalry which resulted in the 2016 women’s fight of the year. The vacant world featherweight belt is on the line.
