Gennady Golovkin vs Daniel Jacobs

Gennady Golovkin v Danny Jacobs: Live stream boxing online with BT Sport

Unified middleweight champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin undoubtedly took on his most risky challenger to date and barely escaped with a unanimous decision win over Daniel Jacobs on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in NY.

Genady Golovkin outlasted Danny Jacobs in an exhausting 12-round defense of his middleweight titles Saturday night.

Undefeated Golovkin is widely considered the best middleweight on the planet but can go some way to cementing his legacy with victory over Jacobs, who has lost just one of his 33 fights. GGG now is 37-0, while Jacobs is 32-2. The power-punch success netted Jacobs the last three rounds on two of the three scorecards, but that was not enough to pull off the win.

The judges are Max DeLuca, Don Trella and Steve Weisfeld. Jacobs, who won the 12th on two cards, was a 115-113 victor on the Newsday card.

The tide swept back and forth, and even with the Garden crowd urging Golovkin with chants of "Triple-G", it was Jacobs who rose to the occasion near the end of the 11th round to land a big left hook followed by a left-right combo before the bell that has him exulting.

He said: "Daniel is my favourite fighter". Prior to the fight, Golovkin had scored 23 straight knockouts and was recognized as the most frightening boxer on the planet.

After the fight Jacobs said that he believes he should have gotten the decision.

In the ninth, Golovkin again attempted to take back control.

The post Boxing: Golovkin edges Jacobs by decision to defend titles appeared first on UNTV News. "I won the fight and I won the decision, and all I can do is be gracious in the decision".

Particularly as Canelo and his team might now think Golovkin is more beatable than they previously might have. Fight fans rallied behind Jacobs and were quick to dismiss Golovkin as the most frightening boxer in the world.

It's interesting that Jacobs stated that definitely GGG was not the boogeyman, but then how come he was so cautious against him? The rest of the fight continued in this patter, with Jacobs winning one or two and Golovkin winning the other.

Nevertheless, it may have become clear that Jacobs' weight advantage, which some speculate to be over 180 pounds as he entered the ring, played a factor in Golovkin's performance, not to mention that Jacobs is tough, crafty, and powerful.

Golovkin outlasted Jacobs in a superb 12-round defence of his middleweight titles on Saturday night. "When I got up, I thought, 'This is all he has?"

"I won by two rounds minimum but he's a bigger name than and boxing wants the super fight with Canelo".

"I see the fight starting with a little bit of posturing from both guys", he said, but neither can avoid the inevitable.
