Gennady Golovkin edges Daniel Jacobs via unpopular decision to retain middleweight titles

Loeffler GGG can fight in June and in September with Canelo Gennady Golovkin v Danny Jacobs: Live stream boxing online with BT Sport

That bout, and the vulnerability and ring wear it exposed in Hagler, was thought to be the turning point in convincing Sugar Ray Leonard to come out of retirement to fight the middleweight terror in their seminal 1987 super-fight.

Golovkin looked tired, lacked precision, was too predictable and after almost 400 amateur fights and 36 in the paid ranks he might just be, at 34 and after a life devoted to boxing, getting old.

The fight did not materialise as on May 2016, the Mexican star vacated the WBC middleweight title, which was duly awarded to Golovkin and he was later recognised by the WBC as the designated champion of the division. It was pay-per-view, HBO, the biggest bout Jacobs ever stepped out of his corner to fight. Golovkin has fought without respect before and won easily.

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

In the toughest fight of his stellar career, Golovkin often was stymied by Jacobs changing to a left-handed style.

Gennady Golovkin has retained his middleweight titles with a unanimous decision over Daniel Jacobs on Saturday night.

"I think I won the fight, and I think the fans support me", Jacobs said, per Rafael.

For many, it was expected that Golovkin would add Jacobs' head to his mantle.

Steven Lieberman, Eichenwald's attorney, compared the online attack to someone sending a bomb or anthrax in the mail. In 1997, for example, a Pokémon episode was said to have sent almost 700 Japanese children to the hospital.

The tenor of the fight changed early in the fourth round when Golovkin finally moved in a landed a crushing right to Jacobs' jaw and followed it up with another sharp right that sent Jacobs down for the third time in his career.

Golovkin swung three big rights but could not catch Jacobs clean with them and the constant action brought the crowd to their feet.

He didn't, unlike so many other opponents who have faced Golovkin.

Jacobs went so far as to say Golovkin only got the decision because the sport wants Golovkin-Alvarez to happen. This fight was about the realisation of hefty expectation and with Jacobs down and hurt it should have been over. Jacobs didn't even show up. On Saturday evening, "GGG" defeated Daniel Jacobs to improve to a ideal 37-0 as a professional boxer despite the fact that his heralded knockout streak came to an end.

Rather than embody the frightening power puncher who puts a touch of sleep on the end of his gloves, Golovkin became a mere mortal who had to fight tooth and nail to squeeze out the decision win against Jacobs.

"I'm very hungry. I'm very mad and excited - I'm like an animal for this fight". All three are massive and hard fights.

Srikaset did what was necessary to take Gonzalez out of his comfort zone as an extended stay at the 115 pound limit prove too much for the previously undefeated title holder. He is still unbeaten, still holds the belts and is still a major attraction. You can't force someone to get in the ring with him.

Said Abel Sanchez, Golovkin's longtime trainer: "He was never losing the fight".
