Three questions that were answered at Golovkin vs. Jacobs

Three questions that were answered at Golovkin vs. Jacobs

So much so, the last 30 days of his fight, Golovkin was overweight by two kilos. That could happen in Golovkin's home country in June during the EXPO 2017 - a world's fair type event. But we've never seen Golovkin hurt, so it's not likely.

According to CompuBox, Golovkin outpunched 30-year-old Jacobs in NY - 231 to 175 - but the American, who is the first cancer survivor to win a world title, believed he had won the contest. With everyone in anticipation, a GGG win by decision 115-112, 115-112, 114-113. "It is my dream". Of his 32 fights, 29 were won by KO. It simply hasn't been a profitable place for boxing, though his handlers think there potentially could be a bigger purse during the expo.

Undefeated Golovkin is widely considered the best middleweight on the planet but can go some way to cementing his legacy with victory over Jacobs, who has lost just one of his 33 fights. Several of his listeners responded, basically, with a "We've heard that before" mantra.

The number of knockouts is how I measure a fighter's punching chance. I think that if the "Bronze Bomber" Deontay Wilder has a big following in America, even if he is not elite skilled, than Golovkin would be already a boxing great in American if he had not been born in Kazakhstan. "I am like an animal for this fight".

The elephant in the ring, though, could be Jacobs.




Jacobs gave all he could against the knockout king, as he forced the middleweight to go the whole 12 rounds. Jacobs, pushing GGG harder and longer than anyone else ever has, looked to have pulled off a stunning upset of his own, but it was not to be.

"I respect Danny Jacobs and very good job and clean job", Golovkin, who used a stinging left jab to set up his power shots, said in the ring after the decision. I'm looking forward to display my true skills against the best. At any rate, the future is bright for both of these men in this fight game.

Jacobs didn't, barely. But he won tons of support, particularly after getting off the canvas in the fourth round and not just surviving but prospering. "I thought I won by at least two rounds minimum".

"Golovkin is defending his IBF title, however Jacobs can not acquire the title with a victory because he did not participate in the required IBF same-day weigh-in", said Lindsey Tucker of the IBF. Now I'll have to go back to the drawing board and see if I can get the rematch. Jacobs extended an invitation to Golovkin, and the request was accommodated.

Roman "Chocalatito" Gonzalez, who has so often shared cards with Golovkin in recent years, dropped a majority decision to Srisaket Sor Rungvisai after 12 enthralling rounds of super-flyweight action at MSG.
