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.
