When is it?
Saturday, March 18.
Gennady Golovkin puts his world titles on the line against Daniel Jacobs.
The unbeaten Kazakh takes on Jacobs with his WBC, IBF and WBA 'Super' World titles up for grabs.
Golovkin hasn't been in the ring since beating Kell Brook in September but he will be expecting to see off Jacobs.
As we have seen though in recent times, you can never rule out the underdog.
Here is all you need to know ahead of the bout.
You’re not going to believe this, but Bloody Elbow staffers are unanimously picking Gennady Golovkin (36-0, 33 KOs) to dispatch Daniel Jacobs (32-1, 29 KOs) in Saturday’s HBO PPV main event in Madison Square Garden. What may genuinely surprise you just a tad is Fraser Coffeen’s breakdown, as he actually thinks Jacobs has what it takes to snap Golovkin’s 23-fight knockout streak.
On Saturday, March 18th inside Madison Square Garden in Manhattan, New York, reigning WBA/WBC/IBF/IBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (36-0, 33 KOs) puts all of his belts on the line once again, this time against heavy-handed Brooklyn native Daniel Jacobs (32-1, 29 KOs), who holds the WBA’s secondary 160 lbs belt. As you may expect, Golovkin is a big favorite, and it’s expected that this won’t require the judges’ scorecards. GGG has won his last 23 fights by KO, while Jacobs is on his own 12-fight knockout streak.
As it the standard for GGG cards, Roman Gonzalez (46-0, 39 KOs) is the co-feature. The Nicaraguan dynamo is considered by many to be the best P4P boxer on the planet, and he’ll be defending his WBC 115 lbs title against Thailand’s Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (41-4-1, 38 KOs), who packs a punch but has also literally never won a fight outside of his home country.
Golovkin will look for his 24th consecutive knockout against Jacobs, a secondary titlist from the same Brownsville section of Brooklyn, New York, that has produced so many great fighters. Jacobs, who returned to boxing in 2012 after beating a rare form of bone cancer, is 10-0 with 10 KOs since coming back.
GGG will also aim for his 18th straight title defense, which would move him two shy of Bernard Hopkins’ middleweight record.
Golovkin (36-0, 33 KO) has knocked out 23 consecutive opponents and held at least one world title since 2010. Unanimously considered the best Middleweight on the planet and a regular feature in Top 5 pound-for-pound lists, “GGG” has recently struggled to find willing opposition, most notably unification target Billy Joe Saunders.
His last fight saw him struggle early with Welterweight standout Kell Brook before ultimately stopping him on a busted orbital.
Jacobs (32-1, 29 KO) holds the “regular” version of Golovkin’s “Super” WBA belt and owns a 12-fight knockout streak of his own, including an 85-second thumping of Peter Quillin. He’s among the division’s heaviest punchers behind Golovkin and figures to be one of his stiffest challenges to date.
