    Derevyanchenko won last night by KO 1 over Mexican Raul Munoz. He'll be another force to be reckoned with at middleweight.

    From ESPN:

    http://espn.go.com/boxing/story/_/id/13408636/sergiy-derevyanchenko-passes-test-veteran-elvin-ayala

    Sergiy Derevyanchenko W8 Elvin Ayala

    Scores: 80-72, 80-71 (twice)

    Records: Derevyanchenko (6-0, 4 KOs); Ayala (28-7-1 12 KOs)

    Rafael's remarks: Derevyanchenko, 29, who is from Ukraine but now fighting out of Brooklyn, New York, had a monster amateur career. He was reportedly 390-20 as an amateur, a 2008 Olympian and then went 23-1 with seven knockouts during his stint in the World Series of Boxing. So even though he only has a few professional fights, he has vast experience and is being moved quickly.

    Headlining on Showtime's "ShoBox: The New Generation," Derevyanchenko was matched against the very experienced pro Ayala, of New Haven, Connecticut, who has faced (and lost to) Arthur Abraham (in a world title bout), David Lemieux (who later won a world title) and Curtis Stevens (who challenged for a world title).

    Ayala, 34, came into the fight having won two bouts in a row and was coming off an eight-round decision against prospect Ronald Gavril in a March upset. But Ayala, slow and with little pop on his punches, had nothing much to offer Derevyanchenko, and got knocked around the ring in a one-sided fight. Derevyanchenko got what he needed -- true professional experience. He went past the fourth round for the first time and made it look easy.

    "I am happy with my performance. I would have liked to have scored the knockout, but Elvin showed he has a lot of heart," Derevyanchenko said. "I was able to work on a lot of different things and show a lot of different dimensions to my game. This was my first time going eight rounds and I feel great. My stamina was great and I was able to do pretty much everything that I wanted to do in there. Elvin was my toughest opponent to date and I think that I passed this test with flying colors."

    Having seen him fight a few times, he doesn't seem to be a huge puncher, but his quickness is something to behold. He's got to be the quickest middleweight in the top 20-30.

    The ESPN card starts at 5 PM Eastern time (very soon).

    Teddy Atlas will be discrediting the Ukrainian boxers, but I'll watch it with the volume turned down so I can hear the old racist rail against them.

    Khytrov put a terrible beating on his very durable opponent, and won by TKO 9.

    The fight should have been stopped sooner for the sake of Mendez' health.
