Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin vs. Daniel Jacobs full fight highlights
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.
Nonetheless Golovkin sent Jacobs to the canvas in round four with two rapid fire overhand rights on his way to a 115-112, 115-112, 114-113 victory on the judges' scorecards.
It had been more than eight years since Gennady Golovkin was taken to a decision, but in the end, he was just good enough to beat Daniel Jacobs.
However, Jacobs was not the only reason for Golovkin's muted performance, which might seem a tough assessment of the Brooklyn fighter's best performance, but it is true. Daniel is my favorite fighter. Golovkin edged it 114-113 on the cards of Max DeLuca and Don Trella, while Steve Weisfeld had GGG ahead 115-112.
Golovkin said: "I couldn't destroy him".
'Daniel did a very good job, ' Golovkin said. He did. He used the jab well and got inside when he saw an opening, as Jacobs has power in both hands.
"Of course, I am ready to fight Canelo". Golovkin, a native of Kazakhstan, has knocked out 23 opponents in a row.

Jacobs vs Golovkin will solidify who the legit lineal middleweight champion is, and it should deliver an exciting match between two hard punchers with technical boxing skill. Boxing fans and analysts are anticipating a showdown between him and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, which is being planned for September, but both fighters have scheduled bouts before that megafight.
But many also believe he should have lost his unbeaten status in his 37th fight. A strong showing in the 8th and 9th sealed the win for the Kazakh despite losing the championship rounds in the cards. Most boxers avoided facing Golovkin prior to seeing how well Jacobs fared against him.
Speaking on the issue, the unified champion insisted that he is considering fighting the Mexican ace, yet not ruling out the possibility of a rematch with Jacobs before the blockbuster clash.
The eighth continued in similar fashion with a right hand from Golovkin the most notable shot, but certainly not the only one, as Jacobs continually went to the body before finishing the combinations to the head. He touted himself as a gentleman over gangster, but let fly his fists fly in the name of knocking out Golovkin Saturday night.
The unstoppable Kazakh needed a unanimous decision to retain his world middleweight titles for the 18th time. "Miracle Man" switched stances well, cut off the ring, hit Golovkin like he had never been before and fought the better fight.
