In doing so by keeping GGG off-balance - Jacobs' periodically switching to a left-handed style was a very effective tactic - and closing with a flourish, He put himself in the mix for another go with Golovkin. "Danny Jacobs is my favorite fighter". That fight, of course, would be against Golden Boy Promotions' and Oscar De La Hoya's prized pupil, Canelo Alvarez. Prior to the fight, Golovkin had scored 23 straight knockouts and was recognized as the most frightening boxer on the planet.
"Golovkin is defending his IBF title, however Jacobs can not acquire the title with a victory because he did not participate in the required IBF same-day weigh-in", said Lindsey Tucker of the IBF. A corner man lifted Gennady Golovkin up into the air.
