Talks of GGG vs. Danny Jacobs have begun

September 23, 2016

After beating Kell Brook on September 10th, Gennady Golovkin (36-0) was told by the WBA that he must face 29 year old American boxer Danny Jacobs (32-1).  

The WBA gave the fighters 30 days to come to an agreement, and they must get a deal done by October 10th or it will go to purse bids.  December 10th would most likely be the date of the fight.  

Jacobs is known as the “Miracle Man,” as his career and life were almost cut short by cancer in 2012.  He made a speedy recovery.  He has won 12 straight fights after losing to Russian Dmitry Pirog in 2010, a bout that was for the vacant WBO middleweight title.  His most recent fight was against Sergio Mora, where he won by TKO in the 12th round and retained his WBA middleweight title.

It’s not exactly the most exciting news, but it’s always fun to watch Golovkin.  What do you think about this fight?  Will Jacobs be able to compete with Golovkin?
