The fight is set on March 18 at the famous Madison Square Garden. Undefeated in 36 fights with 33 knockouts, charismatic middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin will be up against Daniel Jacobs who has a fight record of 32 wins and 1 loss. Both fighters are knockout artists knockouts with Golovkin having 33 KOs while Jacobs has 29 hence the bout is expected not to last the full route. And even if the oddsmakers say the betting is almost fairly even, I would place my money on Golovkin because I had seen him weather the hard punches of Kell Brook, the erstwhile undefeated boxer whose corner had surrendered to protect their boxer from more punishments from Golovkin’s hands.
