Team Derevyanchenko won the purse bid on January 15th

Germany’s rbb service reports that Sergiy Derevyanchenko’s IBF final eliminator against Jack Culcay will take place on April 13th, joining the Peter Quillin-Caleb Truax PBC card in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The winner will presumably go on to face the winner of Canelo Alvarez vs. Danny Jacobs, which goes down less than a month later.

Derevyanchenko’s promoter, Lou DiBella, won the purse bid earlier this month and had stated his intention to hold the fight on a spring PBC event, so mission accomplished.

Derevyanchenko (12-1, 10 KO) gave Daniel Jacobs everything he could handle in their first meeting and is by far the more proven middleweight; Culcay (25-3, 13 KO) spent the majority of his career at 154 pounds, only moving up last year after consecutive losses to Demetrius Andrade and Maciej Sulecki. He’s 3-0 at 160, beating Craig Cunningham, Adasat Rodriguez, and Rafael Bejaran.

This will be Culcay’s second fight in the U.S., having faced Sulecki in Newark.
