I have one night to show them all. He's 36-0 and heavily favored in Saturday's fight. But for the first time in years, standing in the opposite corner is an opponent that many feel can equal or even surpass his power punching prowess.
Since then, Macklin has had to manage a hard exit from the business, while Golovkin, who is 35 next month, has gone on to wreck the ambitions of several worthy contenders. He is the first guy in a while since maybe [David] Lemieux and [Curtis] Stevens that got Gennady fired up. Imagine being on top of the world, turning your head, and getting hit by a hammer a few times.
There was a time when Jacobs could not walk but he never gave up on his identity as a boxer.
MY TAKE. This fight is nearly guaranteed to end via stoppage and the three judges scoring this fight will have the best seats in the house.
While trying to emphasise that his focus was on Jacobs, Golovkin could not hide the fact that he is looking beyond this weekend, revealing that he has been in negotiations with the Alvarez camp for almost two years now.
That's not to say Jacobs doesn't stand a good chance of pulling off a victory in either scenario. "I hope Daniel is ready, I hope he's had his best training camp, I have a great deal of respect for his team", said Golovkin.
Somalia pirates: Anger fuels return of ship attacks
The ship had been carrying fuel from Djibouti to Somalia's capital, Mogadishu, when it was approached by men in two skiffs. Though anti-piracy measures ended attacks on commercial vessels, fishing boats have continued to face attacks.
Abel Sanchez, trainer of Triple-G, says he is fully expecting a fast start from Jacobs, whereby the challenger will jump right on Golovkin.
When you get hit extremely hard, a liquid is produced in your mouth, and you can taste the impact of that liquid mixing with blood and turning into a bruise.
Jacobs, 30, said: "I don't know if Golovkin is over-hyped but he's being promoted as this fearsome guy and I don't believe that to be the case because I don't fear him".
CT: The biggest/best fight for GGG is Canelo [Alvarez], but outside of that GGG-Jacobs is next! Golovkin stops him in 4 or 5 rounds.
But the American concedes some fighters appear wary of Golovkin once in the ring.
Put simply, Jacobs is a much braver man than us!
Trump's wiretap claims not supported by documents from Justice Department, source says
Trump offered no evidence, and an Obama spokesman has said the claim is "simply false". The president denied that the White House was propagating the Fox News theory.
"I have a different type of power".
Here's what I know about this fight: it should denounce the theory that boxing is boring and dead.
HBO PPV generally reveals fighters' fight-night weights, so it will be interesting to see how far north of the middleweight limit Jacobs enters the ring at tonight. "I'm not going to be intimidated, that's the last thing I'm concerned about is being intimidated in the ring". Alvarez is a lightning bolt, and two weeks ago Keith Thurman and Danny Garcia produced a great battle.
We have the the Irishman Olympic bronze medalist Michael Conlan making his pro boxing debut tomorrow night at the theater in Madison Square Garden. And with Golovkin, every punch has knockout potential, be it to the head or body.
The interest in this fight is huge and that means there is plenty of value to be had from the bookies. My bet is Jacobs hits the mat in the eighth round.
Thanks for reading. Have a question or thought?
Trump bump: Rachel Maddow soars with tax reveal
So who is Maddow blaming? Because I have information about the president doesn't mean that it's necessarily a scandal. It's also worth noting that Maddow scored with younger viewers.
