earned the top spot in the IBF rankings with an impressive 12th round
stoppage over Tureano Johnson. The 32-year-old also defeated previously
unbeaten Kemahl Russell in 2017 after his 2016 saw him earn a TKO victory
over Mike Guy in March before stopping former champion Sam Soliman in the
second round of a world title eliminator in July. The unbeaten fighter
defeated a slew of experienced contenders in 2015 with wins over Elvin
Ayala, Alan Campa, Vladine Biosse and a third-round stoppage of Jessie
Nicklow.

Derevyanchenko and Golub make it a pair of Ukrainian sluggers fighting out
of Brooklyn who will compete on the undercard looking to put on impressive
performances in their adopted hometown.
