HBO PPV Weigh-ins: 'GGG,' Jacobs on Point for Crucial Middleweight Unification”

Last Saturday night, undefeated undisputed middleweight Champion of the World Gennady "GGG" Golovkin, who holds a pristine unblemished record of 37 wins and 33 of those by the way of knockout, won a clear unanimous decision against solid contender Danny Jacobs by the scores of 114-113 and 115-112 twice at Madison Square Garden in NY.

Saturday, March 18, one of the most feared punchers in the fight game, Gennady Golovkin, will enter the ring once again and attempt to keep his flawless resume intact as he defends his coveted 160 pound championships against arguably the next best Middleweight in the division, Daniel Jacobs.

It was the toughest fight of Gennady Golovkin's career, but in the end he remains unbeaten. Jacobs, a Brooklynite with an impressive 32-1 record of his own with 29 knockouts, has a height and likely weight advantage over Golovkin, but has been rated a 7-1 long-shot against the holder of the WBC, WBA, IBF and IBO belts.

At the end two scores of 115-112 and one of 114-113 all in favour of Golovkin left Jacobs bemused and Golovkin in a humble, shoulder-shrugging mood. One thing is clear, this will not be the last time we see either Golovkin or Jacobs. Moreover, Daniel has not lost a single fight; nine consecutive wins and all by knockout.

"They want the big fight, and Daniel Jacobs got X'd out. I can't destroy him", said Golovkin, who was born in Karaganda, Kazakhstan.

Much is said of the great Gennady Golovkin and his spectacular strike.

Prior to Golovkin vs. Jacobs, we posed four questions. "I won the fight and I won the decision, and all I can do is be gracious in the decision".

At 88% KO percentage, Daniel Jacobs isn't too far behind.

Two action fighters started slow in the middleweight title unification bout between Gennady Golovkin and Danny Jacobs.

Despite Jacobs' legs being paralyzed for six weeks and having to endure radiation treatments, he says the experience made him a better fighter and got him to where he is today. Fighters have a hard time keeping focus when they something bigger is looming on the horizon.

Golovkin was going to the body in a bid to slow down the American, who was predominantly boxing on the back foot through the early rounds and switching stances.

Frustration and smart boxing will be keys for Jacobs being able to upset Golovkin, Forbes explained.

Here's what I know about this fight: it should denounce the theory that boxing is boring and dead.
