The HBO Boxing the Buzz Crew was live with middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin and superstar Daniel Jacobs in New York City for a Press Conference to formally announce their highly anticipated middleweight championship showdown set for Saturday, March 18 live on HBO Pay-Per-View.
Golovkin vs. Jacobs is a highly anticipated clash in the middleweight division, which has been devoid of some of the best action because of the reluctance of another big name, Canelo Alvarez, to step into the ring with the rest.
Namely, Canelo and his team have been keeping him very far from the likes of GGG. In the meantime, we get a good match-up here with Golovkin vs. Jacobs.
While Jacobs is a very skilled, and deserving challenger, he would appear to be up against it against GGG, as most are. In the one defeat of his career, Jacobs was knocked out by a far lesser fighter than the crushing Golovkin, and has shown a bad tedency to get hurt early in other fights as well.
