GGG and Jacobs II

Earlier today, in Panama, middleweight world champions Gennady Golovkin and Danny Jacobs came face to face.

Golovkin, the division’s IBF/WBA champion, is regarded as the WBA “super” champion while Jacobs is considered the WBA’s “regular” champion at 160 pounds.

There is much talk of the two men one day facing off in the near future following Jacobs’ 1st-round, 85-second destruction of former titlist Peter Quillin on Dec. 2. Weeks earlier, on Oct. 17, so too was Golovkin dominant in hammering David Lemieux out in under eight frames.

And while promotional conflicts may prevent us from seeing this match, it was good to see the two men so cordial with each other on this day, if anything else.
