Press Release: Demetrius Andrade and Daniel Jacobs (pictured) are both targeting the winner of the rematch between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Gennady "GGG" Golovkin in Las Vegas this weekend. Andrade (25-0, 16 KOs) is gunning for two-weight world glory when he challenges England’s WBO middleweight titlist Billy Joe Saunders (26-0, 12 KOs) at the TD Garden in Boston on October 20th live on DAZN and the Rhode Island star wants the Kazakh beast to beat the Mexican hero. Jacobs (34-2, 29 KOs) faces unbeaten Ukrainian ace Sergiy Derevyanchenko (12-0, 10 KOs) for the vacant IBF strap at Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York on October 27th, live on HBO, and the Brooklyn ace is predicting GGG to land the win, but wants Alvarez to win so he can fight ALvarez first then set up his own rematch with Golovkin after he was edged out at the Garden by GGG in March 2017.
Andrade’s clash with Saunders tops a huge night of action in Boston with two more world title fights on the bill as Tevin Farmer (26-4-1 5 KOs) is straight back in action to defend his IBF Super-Featherweight title against Belfast’s James Tennyson (22-2 18 KOs) and Ireland's Katie Taylor (10-0 5 KOs) puts her IBF and WBA lightweight titles on the line against Puerto Rico's Cindy Serrano (27-5-3 10KOs).

Jacobs’ clash with Derevyanchenko tops a world title double-header on HBO as unbeaten Puerto Rican Alberto Machado (20-0 16 KOs) makes the second defense of his WBA 130-pound title against Cleveland’s Yuandale Evans (20-1 14KOs) – and a third world strap on the bill as Heather Hardy (21-0 4KOs) and Shelley Vincent (23-1 1KO) meet in a rematch of their 2016 fight of the year battle – this time with the vacant WBO featherweight belt on the line.
