Derevyanchenko will compete for the vacant IBF middleweight belt with former world champion Golovkin at Madison Square Garden in New York on the night of October 6. The match will be broadcast live on Ukraine's XSport television channel at 04:00 Kyiv time.
Derevyanchenko challenges for the IBF belt for the second time. He fought for the same IBF belt last year but lost a split decision to Daniel Jacobs, his first defeat as a professional. The IBO title will also be at stake.
The Ukrainian boxer will get $5.5 million for the fight.
