Golovkin edges Jacobs by decision to defend titles

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

Gennady Golovkin survived a scare against Daniel Jacobs on Saturday at Madison Square Garden in NY as he was pushed to the limits in order to secure a win.

Gennady Golovkin, right, barely got past Daniel Jacobs on Saturday night.

It was a close, competitive fight and it marked the first time Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) had been extended the full distance in 24 fights, a near-decade-long streak that reached back to when he was fighting eight-rounders during George W Bush's administration. Daniel is my favorite fighter.

The fight was scored 115-112, 115-112, 114-113 at ringside.

WBC Wrap: Puerto Rico Beats Team USA, 6-5
Stroman told reporters in San Diego he was up for and excited about the challenge of facing a lineup as strong as Puerto Rico's . Diaz then struck out Josh Harrison to end it and send the Puerto Ricans into a wild celebration on the infield.

After that, Carlos Cuadras took a controversial unanimous decision win over Daniel Carmona. "I can't destroy him", Golovkin said afterward. "Jacobs is a tough guy and a great fighter and I am very excited for this fight and this year".

Nevertheless, it appears that the most unsafe boxer on the planet has become a mere human being and the mystique of the boogieman has been shattered.

"I'm ready. I'm hungry I want this fight". Golovkin, a native of Kazakhstan, has knocked out 23 opponents in a row. Going into the 11th round, many were speculating that Golovkin needed a finish to win the fight.

The Brooklyn toughie mixed effective boxing and effective punching which frustrated Golovkin in the second half of the fight but that wasn't enough to overcome the unified champ's early lead. Golovkin and Jacobs was an enthralling, albeit less exciting, 12-rounder that appeared tight on the scorecards.

But the opposition decries them as a tactic of forcibly displacing people who oppose Assad after years of bombardment and siege. Residents and fighters from the last remaining rebel stronghold in the Syrian city of Homs are facing a life or death choice.

Golovkin is a terrific fighter but that elusive iconic gown is back on the hanger and back in the wardrobe, which is probably somewhere in the basement under the faded The Garden.

It was the fourth round that found Jacobs on the blue canvas. On the horizon for GGG could be that elusive meeting with Canelo Alvarez if the Mexican wins his fight in May against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

My head says GGG by stoppage, but everyone loves an underdog and a good-news story which Jacobs definitely is.

Roman Gonzalez was upset in the co-feature losing the WBC Super Flyweight title to Srisaket Sor Rungvisai of Thailand. Leading into Saturday night, this was the biggest question. I found it odd to see comments such as "little g is a hype job or he is shot he has slowed down". We give Kell Brook a ton of credit because when three of the top middleweights in the world turned down the opportunity to fight Gennady, he stepped up and he took the same exact deal that was on the table for Eubank.

Waukesha School District spokeswoman Terry Schuster alluded to Bell's run-in with the law in 2015 when explaining the decision. When pressed about the policy and how it relates to bell, a spokesperson told Appleton Post-Crescent : " You can Google Mr.

Golovkin keeps his World Boxing Council and World Boxing Organization crowns-the International Boxing Federation belt was not at stake because Jacobs skipped that organization's fight-day weigh-in.
