On Saturday night, March 18, WBA/WBC/IBF world middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin defeated former world champion Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs via unanimous decision after twelve rounds inside of Madison Square Garden in New York.

Golovkin (37-0, 33 KO’s) got off to a cautious start through three rounds, but was able to register a knockdown of Jacobs (32-2, 29 KO’s) in the fourth round courtesy of a pair of right hands. Jacobs wasn’t rattled however, as he picked himself up and fought courageously the rest of the match, often troubling Golovkin with movement and sharp-punching in the face of one of boxing’s most dangerous punchers.

On Saturday night, Dec. 6, WBA middleweight champion Danny Jacobs produced one of the most electrifying performances of the year in halting former titlist Peter Quillin in under one round.

Jacobs (31-1, 28 KO’s) stormed out of the gates and had Quillin (32-1-1, 23 KO’s) in trouble courtesy of a right hand within the first minute of the match. ¬†Quillin fought valiantly, but was overwhelmed and saw referee Harvey Dock waive the match off after another right hand blitzed him and had him on shaky legs.

In a shocking result, WBA middleweight champion Danny Jacobs scored a thrilling first round knockout over friendly rival Peter Quillin on Saturday night inside of Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The fight was highly-anticipated and still found a way to deliver in terms of excitement. A right hand from Jacobs (31-1, 28 KO’s) stunned Quillin (32-1-1, 23 KO’s) in the opening minute of the match and a follow-up barrage left the former champion even more dazed, with referee Harvey Dock waiving the match off at just 85 seconds into the contest.
