Image result for gennady golovkin vs daniel jacobsUnfortunately for Billy Joe Saunders, the WBA has ordered that their regular champion Daniel Jacobs (32-1, 29 KO’s), and their Super Champion Gennady Golovkin (36-0, 33 KO’s) fight each other in their next fight.  Its about time this fight be made, because both men hold a version of the WBA Wolrd Middleweight title, which should be unified.  There is no reason why and weight division should have two world titles from the same sanctioning body.  The timetable is right, because Jacobs fought on Friday night, and Golovkin fought on Saturday night.  Jacobs won his rematch with Sergio Mora on Friday via TKO in the 7th round, and Golovkin won his fight against Kell Brook on Saturday via TKO in the 5th round.

The fight between GGG and Jacobs must take place within the next 120 days, and Golovkin is expected back in the ring on November 26th on HBO Boxing.  Golovkin will probably not be happy about this, because he hold the better version of the WBA title then Daniel Jacobs does, and will now not be able to get the unification fight against WBO Middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders.  The matchup between GGG and Jacobs is a much better one anyway, because both guys are extreme power punchers, and have a lot of KO’s to prove it. The fight against Saunders would be a much easier one, because Golovkin would simply just take his head off, while winning the last belt he needs to be the undisputed middleweight champ.  Time is running out for GGG, because he is 34 years old, and he wants all the belts.  If he gets through Jacobs, he must immidialaty make the Saunders fight happen, because he still must face Canelo down the road.
