Daniel "Miracle Man" Jacobs (34-2-0, 29 KOs) will take on Sergiy "The Technician" Derevyanchenko (12-0-0, 10 KOs) to try to win the vacant IBF World Middleweight title. The highly-anticipated deciding battle is set for Saturday, October 27 at Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Jacobs, hailing from Brooklyn, New York, is on a hot streak having beaten two then-undefeated titans - Luis Arias and Maciej Sulecki - in his last two matches. The "Miracle Man" is hoping to regain his World Champion status after losing the crown in March 2017 to Gennady Golovkin. If Jacobs can pull off another victory here, he'll be well on his way to having a shot at reclaiming his throne.

Derevyanchenko is a Ukrainian native, currently also based in Brooklyn, who boasts an impressive track record. As an amateur, he compiled an astounding record of 390-20, and represented Ukraine in the 2008 Olympics, before turning pro in July 2014. He may have a little less professional experience than his opponent, but with an undefeated record and 10 knockouts to his name, he is not one to be underestimated.

"I'm excited to be fighting in my hometown," Jacobs said. "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 Sergiy Derevyanchenko."

"I'm a step away from my dream and will not miss this chance," said Derevyanchenko. "From my time in the amateurs to my pro career, this has been a long time coming for me."
