Brooklyn, N.Y. – On March 18, 2017, live at Madison Square Garden, two powerful will collide and reshape boxing’s history when Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (36-0, 33 KOs); current WBC, WBA (super), IBF, IBO middleweight champion faces Daniel “The Miracle Man” Jacobs (28-1, 25 KOs); WBA (regular) middleweight champion in a 12 round championship fight to determine who is the best middleweight in boxing.

“I like old school fighting. If you want to fight just call my manager, this is very easy business.” – Gennady Golovkin (36-0, 33 KOs); current WBC, WBA (super), IBF, IBO middleweight champion

There’s no denying each man’s power capability to land a single punch that can end a fight in the blink of an eye. What intrigues the masses and many boxing fans alike is whether Jacobs will be able to withstand the onslaught of punches that Golovkin has used to dominate each of his last thirty-six opponents. In fact, Golovkin has never been knocked down or slightly hurt as a professional. He has an unbelievable amateur record of (345–5). Golovkin’s power, ability to cut off the ring to corner his opponents, and willingness to engage is something of a marvel, dubbing his fighting style “Mexican style.”

“Do you know what I had to get through to get to this point because you think I fear you? HELL NO! ABSOLUTELY NOT!” – Daniel Jacobs (32-1, 29 KOs); WBA (regular) middleweight champion

Jacobs is no walk in the park as he poses a vital, if not the best challenge that Golovkin has faced thus far in his career. Jacobs is a true warrior. Having stared down cancer in the eyes and defeated the terrible disease he has worked extremely hard to reach this current level of his career. He’s not content with just being given an opportunity to fight Golovkin; he’s focused on defeating the man that some say isn’t beatable. Jacobs is from Brownsville, Brooklyn, one of the toughest cities in the world. Defeating Golovkin would transcend his career to a level of extreme highs. Jacobs isn’t fighting to simply win the belts but rather for legacy.

In fact both men are fighting for their respective legacies. Golovkin has total of (18) consecutive defenses of his middleweight titles with the goal to become undisputed middleweight champion, possibly tying or breaking former undisputed middleweight champion Bernard Hopkins record of consecutive defenses without a loss. Can Jacobs dethrone the champion and begin his reign of consecutive title defenses? Will the King of Brooklyn reign supreme in the Mecca of sports entertainment?

The World Middleweight Championship between Unified Middleweight World Champion, Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, (36-0, 33 KO’s) and WBA Middleweight Champion and Mandatory Challenger Daniel “The Miracle Man” Jacobs, (32-1, 29 KO’s) takes place on Saturday, March 18 at The Mecca, Madison Square Garden in New York City. The event will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT. Also being featured on this mega fight card will be consensus #1 Pound-for-Pound Fighter in the World and World Boxing Council (WBC) Super Flyweight Champion Roman “Chocolito” Gonzalez (46-0-0, 38 KO’s) defending his title against mandatory challenger Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (41-4-1, 38 KOs) of Si Sa Ket, Thailand.
