GGG vs. Derevyanchenko fight purse: How much will Gennadiy Golovkin make? Prize money, payouts

first_imgGennadiy Golovkin kicked off his DAZN debut in raucous fashion by delivering a fourth-round KO of Steve Rolls at Madison Square Garden in New York City this past June.Now, the former unified middleweight champion returns to the Garden, looking to produce another “Big Drama Show” on Saturday night, and live on DAZN, when he faces Sergiy Derevyanchenko with the vacant IBF title up for grabs. Derevyanchenko was the mandatory challenger to face Canelo Alvarez, but Alvarez was stripped of the IBF belt over his failure to reach a purse bid during talks with the Ukrainian fighter. That’s what set up Golovkin vs. Derevyanchenko with the championship strap on the line.Join DAZN to watch GGG vs. Derevyanchenko & 100+ fight nights a yearThe 37-year-old Golovkin (39-1-1, 35 KOs) responded to a disappointing majority decision loss to Canelo last September by flattening the virtually-unknown Rolls nearly nine months later. The 33-year-old Derevyanchenko (13-1, 10 KOs) fought for the IBF title before, having lost a split decision to Daniel Jacobs last October in his first pro loss. He rebounded from that defeat by scoring a unanimous decision over Jack Culcay in April.Both GGG and Derevyanchenko are set to be paid handsomely for this title fight. Here’s a breakdown of that purse, including how much each fighter is expected to make.GGG vs. Derevyanchenko fight purseThis will mark the second bout of Golovkin’s three-year, six-fight deal, worth a reported $100 million, that he inked with DAZN in March.That means this fight against Derevyanchenko will likely pay him eight figures and possibly even set up a larger payday if a trilogy fight with Canelo is secured thereafter. However, that last prospect seems bleak for now, with Alvarez voicing his disinterest in a third fight with his rival.Meanwhile, Derevyanchenko is set to earn $5 million for this fight, as reported by ESPN. That’s easily the largest payday of his career, as “The Technician” received a reported $462,500 for his only other world title shot — against Jacobs last fall.What is GGG’s net worth?According to Forbes, Golovkin has a net worth upward of $25 million. That was reported just after his victory over Rolls in June. His fight purse winnings are slated at $23 million, while GGG also has sponsorship deals with the likes of Nike’s Jordan Brand, Hublot, Tecate, and Chivas Regal worth an estimated $2.5 million. Gennadiy Golovkin career recordA split draw and majority loss to Canelo serve as the only blemishes on GGG’s otherwise dominant 39-1-1 pro ledger, and both of those verdicts remain highly controversial.Many boxing fans and experts believe that Golovkin did enough to defeat Canelo in their initial September 2017 meeting, but judge Adalaide Byrd’s 118-110 scorecard in favor of Alvarez left the Kazakh warrior without a win. A sizable share of boxing pundits also believe that Golovkin did enough to defeat Canelo in their September 2018 rematch, although a sharper, more aggressive Alvarez got the majority decision nod.As a former unified world middleweight champion, Golovkin was long considered the boogeyman of the division, before the run-ins with Alvarez. Perhaps a new title reign will return the veteran to that status, especially while Canelo momentarily moves up two weight classes to face Sergey Kovalev for the WBO light heavyweight championship on Nov. 2.last_img read more

Utes shut out Broncos

first_imgE-mail: sor@desnews.com It took awhile to get started, thanks to a couple of thunderstorms that rolled through the Utah campus Sunday afternoon, but once it did, it didn’t take long for the Utah women’s soccer team to jump all over Boise State.The Utes scored three first-half goals and cruised to a 3-0 victory over the Broncos to improve to 4-2-1 on the season. The Broncos dropped to 5-3.”That’s always nice to start fast,” said Utah coach Rich Manning.”Hopefully we’re starting to find a rhythm.”Hailey Marsh, Amanda Feigt and Melissa Wayman each scored goals for the Utes and goalkeeper Ashley Mason and the Ute defense kept the Broncos out of the goal.The opening kickoff was delayed about 45 minutes because of lightning at Ute Field, following a drenching rain. Then after less than four minutes of action, play was again delayed due to more lightning. Finally, at about the time the game should have been winding down, play resumed for good.Manning felt his team wasn’t as sharp coming back from the delay, but the Utes still got on the board quickly.At the 16:10 mark, Marsh took a pass from Kim Lloyd and put the ball in the left center from about eight yards out.”We’ve worked hard in practice on crashing the box and making smart cuts through the defense,” said Marsh, a sophomore from Colorado. “When Kim crossed the ball it was second nature to go up and get the ball.””Hailey has been working really hard in practice and earned a start,” said Manning. “She’s really good in the air, and she demonstrated that on the goal.”Then at the 33:24 mark, Feigt, the Utes’ top scorer, made it 2-0 with an unassisted goal into the upper right-hand corner, her third of the season. Finally, with just 19 seconds left in the first half, Melissa Wayman scored on a header from five yards out off a corner kick from Erin Pruitt.”That third goal was big I thought, because it gave us confidence and a bit of a cushion going into halftime,” Manning said.Boise State had seven shots on goal, but only four resulted in saves by Mason, who notched her ninth career shutout. The Utes have two home games coming up, Thursday at 3:30 p.m. against Washington State and Sunday at 1 p.m. against Utah State before taking a trip to southern California the following week. last_img read more

Mike Sorensen: Utah Jazz: At least pick didn’t get booed

first_img Related All of a sudden we have a little bit of everything going on in the world of sports …It’s probably a good thing the Jazz didn’t invite the fans for draft night at the EnergySolutions Arena like they have in the past. The reaction to the pick of Kosta Koufos would likely have been similar to the reaction at Madison Square Garden when the Knicks chose Italian Danilo Gallinari. Which was similar to the one at my house by my Jazz-fan son when the Jazz chose Koufos …There’s something about unknown big guys with funny names that makes fans wary. Sometimes they work out (Dirk Nowitzki, Manu Ginobli) and sometimes they don’t (Darko Milicic, Niciloz Tskitishvili, Oleksiy Pecherov, Greg Ostertag) …The Jazz brass certainly were excited to get a player projected to be picked as high as 13 or 14 at No. 23. However, the simple fact is, Koufos fell to 23 for a reason or else a bunch of teams would have taken him. You can’t say the Jazz got a lottery player. He’s still a No. 23 pick …I’m not saying Koufos won’t be a good player. He’s been compared favorably by some to Mehmet Okur, so perhaps he can take the Turk’s place in four or five years. By then he’ll only be 23 or 24 …Good for BYU’s Trent Plaisted to get drafted after a lot of folks thought he wouldn’t. I’ll still be surprised if he sticks on Detroit’s roster, but then again I’m still surprised former BYU center Greg Kite lasted for 12 seasons in the NBA …Speaking of Kite, did you know he started 225 games during his career, including all 82 in 1990-91 with Orlando? At least Plaisted is a slightly better free-throw shooter than Kite, who shot an abysmal 48.6 percent from the foul line in his NBA career …Once again, no American male players made it to the second week of Wimbledon. This year was one of the worst ever, however, with only one American male player making it as far as the third round, the worst U.S. showing since 1926. With Ana Ivanovic and Maria Sharapova both eliminated last week, the Williams sisters are on a collision course for the finals, unless they start playing like the American men …How about former Salt Lake pitcher Jered Weaver becoming just the fifth pitcher in Major League history to be the losing pitcher in a no-hitter pitched by his own team. Weaver pitched the first six innings of the Angels 1-0 loss to the Dodgers Friday, but his error contributed to L.A.’s only run in the fifth inning …Just when local fans were getting excited about the Blaze, they go and blow a lead and lose a playoff game at home. While it was disappointing, give Danny White and the Blaze credit for recovering from that awful 0-9 start all the way to hosting a first-round playoff game …Just when local fans are getting excited about Real Salt Lake after five straight games without a loss, the team goes and loses in the worst possible way — an own-goal in the 89th minute to one of the league’s worst teams. At least RSL still has more than three months left on its schedule, unlike the Blaze, who are done for the year …Not that an American has to win the U.S. Women’s Open, but it was too bad to see Stacy Lewis fade badly Sunday with a 78. The winner, in case you didn’t see, was 19-year-old South Korean Inbee Park, not to be confused with Angela Park, a 19-year-old Brazilian-born 19-year-old of Korean descent, who lives in California. She finished in a tie for third place with Lewis and In-Kyung Kim, not to be confused with Mi Hyun Kim, who finished in a tie for sixth, and Song-Hee Kim, who tied for 24th …Who’s the best player on the PGA Tour now that Tiger Woods is out for the season? It’s got to be 47-year-old Kenny Perry, who won for the second time this year at the Buick Open and moved into third place on the FedEx points list. Kenny Perry? Yikes … Finally, for all you diehard college football fans, the season begins exactly two months from today for BYU, Utah and Utah State (Weber State starts two days earlier), with training camps a little more than a month away.

Utah Utes basketball: Team ready for first ‘official’ exhibition game

first_img Related Utah-TCU tilt puts Utes in spotlight ESPN will be in SLC for ‘GameDay’ ’08 victory convinced Wynncenter_img New Utah uniforms support troops SALT LAKE CITY — The University of Utah men’s basketball team tips off its season Friday night when Adams State, a Division II team from Colorado, visits the Huntsman Center for a 7 p.m. exhibition contest. The season officially begins the following Friday when another Division II team, Grand Canyon, plays the Utes in the Huntsman Center.Actually the Utes have already played a game, but no one is supposed to know about it. The Utes went to Tucson over the weekend and played a secret game against the University of Arizona. The gym was completely empty except for the players, coaches and a couple of security guards. No stats were kept, although the teams were allowed to film the game.Because of strict NCAA rules, Utah coach Jim Boylen can’t say anything about the actual game, but the Utes played well and he offered, “It was a great learning experience and hopefully we can grow from it.”College teams are allowed to play two exhibition games every year, but are also allowed to use one of them to play another college team in a “practice” game. Under Boylen, the Utes have done this the past two years, playing the University of Colorado at the Huntsman Center and in Boulder.GETTING BETTER: With nine new players, it has been a challenge so far this season, but Boylen believes his team is progressing well, three weeks into official practice time.”We’re starting to grasp the concepts of our foundation — that we can play full speed and do it,” he said. “We’re starting to understand how hard you have to play at this level. We’ve adjusted better to the pace of practice.”Newcomers Josh Watkins and Will Clyburn continue to shine in practice along with returning forward Shawn Glover. Sophomore center Jason Washburn and freshman J.J. O’Brien are getting time with the first team as projected starters David Foster and Jay Watkins are sitting out with nagging injuries.The Utes added a pair of walk-ons this week from tryouts in October — Seth Tippetts, a 6-8 forward from Sandy, and Michael Hodgman, a guard from California.REDSHIRTS: Boylen said he won’t make any announcements about players who will be redshirting until next week before the first game.As many as four of the 15 players could be redshirted with freshman walk-ons Neal Monson and Josh Fuller, who are planning on LDS missions after the year, almost certain to be. The other two most likely redshirts are freshmen guards Preston Guiot from Missouri and Dominique Lee from California. Neither is expected to crack the Utes’ nine-man playing rotation and might be better off saving a year of eligibility.Boylen said it’s a decision between him, the player and his family.”Some coaches don’t like to redshirt a guy, because it locks up a scholarship in the program for another year but I’ve been open to it because I’ve been asked to build a program,” Boylen said.Three players from Boylen’s first recruiting class redshirted, including Washburn, Chris Hines and Josh Sharp, who is serving an LDS mission. Last year, forward Jeremy Olsen redshirted before going on a mission.TICKETS: Men’s basketball single-game tickets went on sale Monday. Fans can purchase tickets on the web at www.utahutes.com, by phone at 801-581-UTIX or in-person at the Rice-Eccles Ticket Office.Utah will also offer several ticket packages, which are on sale now.

Single-game tickets start at $15 in the lower bowl.Season tickets in Section F are also available now for $99. “Section F” is Utah’s designated zone behind the west basket for the loudest and most active fans.Also anyone purchasing season tickets for the 2010-11 season will receive first priority in 2011-12 when Utah enters the Pac-12.e-mail: sor@desnews.comlast_img read more

Lea Garner hangs on and edges Sirene Blair for Utah Women’s Open title

first_imgPROVO — Former BYU golfer Lea Garner hung on to win the inaugural Utah Women’s Open Sunday, edging Sirene Blair by one shot at East Bay Golf Course.Garner, a native of Washington Terrace who completed her career at BYU last year, added a 66 to her first-day 67 to beat Blair, who hails from South Jordan and just completed her collegiate career at San Diego State. Blair also shot 66 Sunday after a first-round 68.Finishing five shots back of the winner at 138 was Juli Erekson, a professional from Eagle Mountain, while BYU sophomore Anna Kennedy was the top amateur, finishing with a 140 total, a shot better than State Amateur champion Kelsey Chugg.By winning, Garner earned $3,000, while Blair got $2,000 as the runner-up and Erekson received $1,200 for third in the tournament sponsored by Siegfried & Jensen and Fairways Media.In Sunday’s final round, Garner extended her overall lead to three with birdies at holes 2 and 3, before Blair cut the margin to one with birdies at 6 and 9. A birdie on 12 left the two in a tie before Garner made back-to-back birdies at 13 and 14 with Blair also birdieing 14. Then both golfers finished with birdies at 16 and 18.Other top finishers included Carly Dehlin at 143 and Kendra Dalton, Naomi Soifua and Alina Vannarath at 144.last_img read more

5 underrated Utah-BYU games you may have forgotten

first_imgSALT LAKE CITY — Ask anyone about the Utah-BYU football series and they can come up with several classic games, whether it’s the 34-31 games, Collie’s magic, Beck-to-Harline, Burton’s block, Kaneshiro’s doink or Yergensen’s 55-yarder. Those games all came during the last 25 years when nearly every year has produced a classic moment.Today we’re going to tell you about five of the most underrated Utah-BYU games that were significant for various reasons, one from each decade from the 1940s to the 1980s.BYU BreakthroughOct. 10, 1942 — BYU 12, Utah 7If you don’t count those three victories in the 1890s when BYU was known as B.Y. Academy — which BYU doesn’t — the Cougars had never beaten Utah in 20 tries, losing 17 games and tying three others going into this game. It didn’t look to be any different when the two teams met on a fall afternoon at Ute Stadium.The catalyst for the win was a blocked punt in the fourth quarter when, according to the newspaper account, “the center of the blue forward wall converged on young Wally Kelly” as he punted deep in Utah territory and the Cougars recovered on the 10-yard line. Three plays later, Herman Longhurst ran around the right end and soon after the Cougars were “able to ring the victory bell that BYU backers have been waiting for years to hear.”Thanksgiving ClassicNov. 26, 1953 — Utah 33, BYU 32It was a nationally televised game just a few years after TV became a staple in American homes and played on Thanksgiving Day. Utah came into the game as a heavy favorite with a 7-2 record and a first-place standing in the Skyline Conference compared to BYU’s 2-6-1 mark and last-place standing in the conference.Behind fullback Don Peterson, the “Redskins” dominated early and led 26-13 in the third quarter before the Cougars mounted a comeback to tie the score at 26 on a run by Don James. The Utes came right back with a touchdown drive as Peterson went over from the 2-yard line and thought they had the game. Then the Cougars put together an 80-yard touchdown drive to pull within one point in the waning minutes. However, the extra point try was muffed when the holder couldn’t handle the snap and was swarmed under by the Utes. After the win, the Utah seniors voted not to accept an invitation to play in the Sun Bowl on New Year’s Day. According to the newspaper account, the reason was because “the married men on the squad needed the vacation employment to augment their incomes.”Carter’s Coming-Out PartyNov. 6, 1965 — BYU 25, Utah 20This was a year after Utah’s big season (9-2, Liberty Bowl win) when the Utes had won 47-13 and the Utes came in having lost just two of the previous 41 meetings between the two schools.This was seven years before the start of the LaVell Edwards’ passing era, but you could say this season was the start of the Cougars’ quarterback tradition. Virgil Carter was in his second year as BYU’s QB and by passing for four touchdowns against Utah, he not only set a BYU record, but a WAC record as well in leading the victory.Most of the scoring came in the first half. Carter hit Tim Russell for the first score and after Utah came back to take a 14-6 lead in the second quarter, Carter responded with three more TD passes, another to Russell, one to Dennis Palmer for a 36-yard score and then Phil Odle from 22 yards out. That made it 25-14 at the half and the Utes added a score early in the third quarter and from there it was up to the Cougar defense to keep the Utes out of the end zone and preserve the victory as Bobby Ashdown intercepted a last-gasp pass by the Utes in the final minute.Not only did Carter complete 16 of 29 passes for 253 yards, he was BYU’s best runner with 83 yards on 19 carries. By the time he left BYU after the 1966 season, he had set six national, 19 conference and 24 school records and went on to play in the NFL for several years.Marv’s bootNov. 20, 1971 — Utah 17, BYU 15Neither team was having a very good season as the Utes came into the late November game 2-7, while the Cougars were 5-5 and looking to end with a winning season. Two local players who played high school ball in Salt Lake and went on to be teammates in the NFL for the Dallas Cowboys played key roles in the contest. Golden Richards, who prepped at Granite High School, got the scoring started with a 73-yard punt return, one of an NCAA-record four punt return touchdowns that season off a punt by Utah’s all-American punter Marv Bateman, who played for Highland High. The Utes came back with a pair of touchdowns, runs by quarterback Don Van Galder and halfback Cal Poulson, to go ahead 14-6 at the end of the first quarter. BYU came back with a field goal and a touchdown after an 86-yard drive to go ahead 15-14, but they missed a two-point conversion that proved costly later. The Utes drove to the 15-yard line and Bateman, who had missed a 38-yarder earlier in the quarter, booted a 32-yard field goal with 1:05 left to give Utah the victory.Utes’ giveawayNov. 20, 1982 — BYU 17, Utah 12After losing 56-6 and 56-28 the previous two seasons, the Utes dominated the statistics in this game, but couldn’t get the win against Steve Young & Co. Despite getting 24 first downs compared to 11 for BYU and rolling up 468 yards to 300 for the Cougars, BYU came away with the narrow victory to clinch another WAC title and a fifth consecutive trip to the Holiday Bowl.Under first-year coach Chuck Stobart, the Utes used a ball-control offense led by Carl Monroe and Hilria Johnson, who rushed for 147 and 145 yards respectively. However, four turnovers, three fumbles and an interception, compared to zero for the Cougars, proved to be the difference.The Utes fumbled at the 1-yard line, threw an interception into the end zone and stalled at the 7-yard line after an 83-yard drive, or they might have won going away.“We gave that game away,” Utah quarterback Kenny Vierra said afterward. “The fumble and the interception killed us and that was my fault.”last_img read more

Report Reply 0 replies · active 110 weeks ago +4 Vote up Vote down Dan · 110 weeks ago This is a beautiful and patriotic gesture. But, my comment is: Please PICK THEM BACK UP after the 4th! A few years ago another business put out a lot of similar flags around town. But after July 4, no one picked them up. They ended up in mud puddles, gutters, or run over by mowers,etc. A most disrespectful and sad fate.

Buellesfeld has never been shy about saying his favorite holiday is the Fourth of July. He has always had a large private fireworks show in his neighborhood in Wellington.But this year he decided to do something different.He has purchased 5,000, 4×6 flags and have put it around Wellington.J.P. Buellesfeld“My mom came here from the Philippines Island as an immigrant,” Buellesfeld said. “She was welcomed here with a dream for a better life for her children. That’s why I have always loved this holiday.”So he placed his order a couple of weeks ago and when the shipment arrived he along with an estimated 40 volunteers, started placing these small flags around town.“As of Monday morning, we have distributed about 4,000 flags and have 1,000 more to distribute in the next 36 hours,” Buellesfeld said. The flags are everywhere. Buellesfeld said the U.S. Flags with the best viewing are: (1) Highway 160-going east from Roundabout to Woodlawn; (2) Sellers Park by the tennis courts; (3) Woods Park- south of the Golf Course; (4) Jefferson Street downtown to 15th Street; (5) Washington Street downtown to 15th Street; (6) Lincoln School and Stewart Park; (7) Roundabout at A & 15th Street ; (8) Washington School; (9) Lincoln Street Corners from Jefferson Street to the Cemetery; (10) Downtown Trees; (11) 9th Street Baseball Field; (12) 8th Street going west from Bridge to Oil Field Road; (13) United States Post Office Building; (14) Century Park/Lions Club Park; (15) Day Street (going north to City Fireworks show on July 4th); (16) Sumner County Courthouse. “I personally think ever single U.S. flag makes Wellington look nice for the holiday,” Buellesfeld said.
