Sergiy Derevyanchenko: loses only to champions
Derevyanchenko had 16 fights on the pro ring, 13 wins with 3 losses. The Ukrainian boxed three times for the world title and lost in all his fights – to Daniel Jacobs, Gennady Golovkin and Jermall Charlo.
Derevyanchenko had three losses in his last four fights, but no one cares. He lost to those who everybody loses to, but he didn't lose to Golovkin (sorry for the sloppy language). But he lost to Jermell Charlo in his last fight, of course, without question.
«I have a lot of motivation for the fight. Motivation and my power is going to help me. A win over Adames will put me where I want to get back to. I feel strong. I'm very excited to face Adames. He's a good fighter who hits hard. I've faced powerful boxers in the middleweight division and I've also fought Puerto Rican punchers, so I'm not worried about his power.»
Carlos Adames: underdog, not an easy one
Adames has been in the ring 21 times. He has 20 wins with one loss – the Dominican lost to Patrick Teixeira in 2019.
«I want to fight against the best fighters. Sergiy is definitely one of them. I am aware of everything that is at stake, but I do not run away from it. I am excited about what is going to come on Sunday night. I understand that my opponent has fought great fighters, but now he is facing Carlos Adames, and I'm a big puncher. Don't underestimate me. Otherwise, he is going to be in big trouble. I consider myself to be a great fighter just like him. I don't think Derevyanchenko is an insurmountable mountain. Sergiy is a good fighter, but he's not an obstacle for me. He is going to realize how strong I am.»

Expert Betting Tips
This is the last chance for the Ukrainian to get the title (he is 36 years old after all), so there is no doubt in Sergiy’s motivation. He will be looking to destroy, and the prediction for an early end to the fight looks very promising – Adames went all twelve rounds only once, once more eleven, and only twice ten. He's really struggling towards the end.
Adames will lose in the distance, and everyone understands that, including him. He doesn't have to box with a technical Derevyanchenko at all, he has to beat, crush, finish him. That's why there is a higher chance that the fight will end early. All in all, I think the optimal betting option is “Fight To Go The Distance - No”. Both 1xbet and bet365 offer odds of 3.00 for it.
