Image result for golovkin vs jacobsOn March 18th 2017, after months of negotiations, Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (36-0, 33 KO’s) and Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs (32-1, 29 KO’s) will finally meet in the ring.  The fight will take place at the Mecca of Boxing, Madison Square Garden in New York City, NY.  Golovkin will be defending his WBAsuper/WBC/IBF/IBO World Middleweight titles against Jacobs, so this one will be for almost all the marbles.  The only Middleweight title not on the line will be the WBO strap, which currently sits around the waist of Billy Joe Saunders.  Golovkin plans on facing Saunders in the future for that last remaining belt, and becoming the first undisputed Middleweight champion since Bernard Hopkins did it back in 2004, when he defeated Oscar De La Hoya for the last remaining title.  Not even Wladimir Klitschko was an undisputed champion, because he never held the WBC title while he had all the other belts.  The only person that stands between him and a possible date with Billy Joe Saunders is the current WBA (regular) champion, Daniel Jacobs.

Jacobs has made 4 successful title defenses since winning the WBA (regular) title from Jerrod Fletcher back in 2014.  Jacobs’ last three fights have been super dramatic.  When he faced Sergio Mora for the first time in 2015, the two fighters exchanged knockdowns in the very first round.  After the second, Mora could not continue due to injury.  After that, Jacobs went up against “Kid Chocolate” Peter Quillin, in the battle for Brooklyn, and knocked him out a minute and a half into to first round.  Jacobs would then have a rematch with Sergio Mora in September of this year, and he knocked him out in the 7th round.  Jacobs is a powerful puncher with only one loss on his record, but his chin has come in to question recently, as he has been hurt in recent fights.  Will he be able to hold up against the search and destroy style of Gennady Golovkin?

Golovkin on the other hand has still not been truly tested.  Yes Kell Brook gave him fits in his last fight, but being a natural Welterweight, it was only a matter of time until Brook got hurt, and would not be able to continue.  Their fight ended up being stopped by Brook’s corner, after Golovkin broke his eye socket with a punch.  Dominic Wade never stood a chance against “GGG” in the fight before that, and Golovkin quickly disposed of him with a second round knockout.  Golovkin will be aiming for his 18th consecutive successful title defense, if he can in fact defeat Jacobs in March.  He is approaching the Middleweight record of 20 successful title defenses, which was set by Bernard Hopkins, back in 2005.

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.
