Gennadiy ?GGG? Golovkin believes his clash with Sergiy Derevyanchenko will be a classic when they meet for the vacant IBF World Middleweight title on Saturday October 5 at Madison Square Garden in New York, live on DAZN.

Golovkin (39-1-1 35 KOs) and Derevyanchenko (13-1 10 KOs) met at a press conference at the mecca of boxing yesterday and both men stated their excitement for what promises to be a thrill a minute battle for the belt that Golovkin used to hold, and that Derevyanchenko has challenged for.

Former unified king Golovkin is gunning to regain the crown he held for three years as the Kazakh star targets returning to World champion status and meetings with the other champions at 160lbs.

Derevyanchenko has plans to derail that journey though and came close to landing the IBF strap himself in October at the Hulu Theater at MSG, being edged out on a split decision against Golovkin?s old foe Daniel Jacobs.

?I?m so excited,? said Golovkin. ?First of all, I?m happy to be back home, my second home. Thank you to my family at MSG for always supporting me. Of course, I?m very excited right now. Right now, I work with the best people from boxing.

?I have the best opponent, Sergiy. I?ve know him for a long time and he?s a very good fighter. This is a real fight. I?m a little bit scared because he?s good. I know his team is very strong. And I?m scared because he looks good. He looks strong. He feels it?s his time right now. Maybe ? this is boxing, nobody knows. So if you want to watch a real show, a real fight, come to MSG on October 5 or watch live on DAZN.?

?I?m really excited and happy to be at Madison Square Garden,? said Derevyanchenko. ?Thank you to my team, and I want to give thanks to Gennadiy Golovkin for the opportunity as well. I know exactly who I?m getting in the ring with. He?s the former Middleweight champion of the world, one of the best fighters in the world, but his time is coming to an end and I want to be the one that makes that time come to an end.?
