VIDEO: GGG Defeats Sergiy Derevyanchenko After Wild Controversial Back-and-Forth Match

The decision is in, and Gennadiy Golovkin has defeated Sergiy Derevyanchenko in a fight that was much closer than many expected. GGG narrowly avoided the upset after taking some massive shots in this one, but all that matters is he came away with the W.

This baby went the distance, but there was a controversial moment when it looked like the ref accidentally propped up GGG when he was about to be knocked down after a series of big blows.

What do you think?

This wasn't pretty either.

That's a rockin' body shot.

We must say though, Derevyanchenko was beyond banged up.

And how couldn't he be after taking hits like this?

Boxing fans everywhere got one hell of a match, but there's somehow a lot left to be desired after it.
