Fighting out of Brooklyn, N.Y., Jacobs (34-2) is on a good run, beating Luis Arias and Maciej Sulecki in his last two fights. The “Miracle Man” is looking to regain his world-champion status after losing his WBA title to “Triple G” Gennady Golovkin in a unification match in March 2017. With Golovkin and Mexican fighter Saul “Canelo” Alvarez fighting in a rematch on Sept. 15, Jacobs will be looking to face the winner.

“This opportunity for a world title is one I don’t take lightly and I’m preparing myself to be in an incredible fight with Sergey Derevyanchenko,” Jacobs said per Matchroom Boxing release. “I’ve always felt that I was the best middleweight in the world with this type of fight I’m that much closer to all the that glory and to proving to the world I am the best.”

Jacobs’ promoter, Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing, offered support for his fighter.

“When we started working with Danny, the goal was always to become World Champion and now the time has come,” adding “This is brilliant match up, but I strongly believe on October 27 at MSG Danny will be crowned champion and add another chapter to this Cinderella story.”

Derevyanchenko (12-0) from Crimea, Ukriane, has his own ideas. “The Technician” is a seasoned amateur with a 390-20 record with an appearance at the 2009 Olympics. He is known for his quick reflexes, strong defense and devastating power, having stopped 10 of his 12 opponents since turning professional in July 2014. Last time out saw the hard-hitting Ukrainian dismantle Dashon Johnson over six rounds at the Barclays Center.

“I’ve known Danny since he was a kid. He is a great fighter in and out of the ring,” said Derevyanchenko promoter Lou DiBella. “Stylistically, this is a can’t-miss action fight. Sergiy studies his opponents, finds their weaknesses, then breaks them down. That is why he has such a great chance to win this fight and become the IBF Middleweight Champion.”

Jacobs and Derevyanchenko know each other very well — both are trained by Andre Rozier who will be in Jacobs corner come fight night. Gary Stark Sr. will oversee training responsibilities for Derevyanchenko, as the Ukrainian prepares for his first world championship opportunity.

“From my time in the amateurs to my pro career, this has been a long time coming for me,” said Derevyanchenko. “I’ve beaten everyone they’ve put in front of me to earn this shot. Having trained with Danny, I know him very well and we are friends. However, it will be strictly business in the ring. I will not be denied. The belt will be mine.”
