On Saturday March 18, at the Madison Square Garden of Nueva York, the world will stop when the best Middleweight of the world Gennady Golovkin from Kazakhstan and Daniel Jacobs from USA fight for the Middleweight supremacy. The first is the World Boxing Association middleweight super champion .and the latter is the WBA regular champion. Golovkin has an impressive record of 36-0, 33 ko’s and the Jacobs, 32-1, 29 ko’s.
This will be the seventeenth title defense of Golovkin, who won the WBA middleweight title on December 16, 2010 when he defeated by Nilson Julio Tapia. Ever since he has son by KO all the next 16 contenders.
Jacobs won the Crown after defeating Jarrod Fletcher, at Brooklyn Barclay Center, on August 9, 2014. Ever since that date, he has defended his title four times, all by KO.
Both fighters are considered the best middleweight, where boxers like Roy Jones Jr, Bernard Hopkins, “Tito” Trinidad, Marvin Hagler and the legendary Carlos Monzon reigned.
We are expecting a fight whatever it what lasts, will be a candidate for “Fight of the Year”. GGG has never fought a man with the offensive power like Jacobs and the New Yorker has never fought such a formidable opponent like GGG, who is being compared with the greatest of Middleweight.
There has never been such a tough fight since fights like Carlos Monzon vs, Rodrigo Valdés in 1976-77, Marvin Hagler vs Thomas Hearns and Ray Leonard in 1985-87, and Hopkins vs Trinidad on September 29, 2001.
Although both boxers stand out for their power, no one can say for sure if they will entangle in the close range since the beginning of the fight. Golovkin has demonstrated he can box, and cause damage harm at the same time, as he did with David Lemieux.
Jacobs, Jacobs, on the other hand, on his part, has given everything since the opening bell and in other occasions he has gradually increased the attacks. The truth is that this fight must be a great fight, where neither of them will get out of the ring without having giving their best effort in search of the victory. GGG and Jacobs for the Middleweight supremacy.
