Golovkin decisions Jacobs as knockout streak ends

If he beats Jacobs and Saul Alvarez takes care of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in May, the stage may finally be set for a superfight that would eclipse even the excitement of tonight's expected fireworks. The knockdown that Golovkin scored in round 4 was crucial to him winning. Golovkin came back soon thereafter to land a combination as Jacobs backed into Golovkin's corner.

With Canelo, or at least the Mexican's promotional team, seemingly reluctant to enter negotiations the hard-hitting Jacobs probably represents the next best option. An animated Jacobs then pumped his fists as he walked back to his corner. "A simple man, a man that can be hurt, a man that bleeds just like I bleed and be put in situations just like me", said Jacobs to tmz.com about Golovkin.

As of right now, that doesn't seem to be the plan. That means Jacobs will be 10-11 pounds heavier than Golovkin. The referee is Charlie Fitch.

Jacobs boxed well enough for the remainder of the fourth round to make it until the bell sounded.

But the fifth started with another hard shot from Golovkin, this time a left hand that rocked Jacobs and roused the crowd.

Jacobs opened the second round in a southpaw stance and spent about the first minute fighting out of it.

Not only was Jacobs unable to keep the the fight in the center of the ring and stay off the ropes, but he was seemingly exposed as a pugilist who is largely deficient on the inside and incapable of dealing with the mental and physical pressures that usually come with facing a proficient aggressive opponent.

Macklin, one of the game's toughest customers, says he has never been hit harder than by the body shot with which the Kazakh levelled him for the count when they fought in CT almost four years ago. "I feel like GGG has fought fast guys, he's fought strong guys, he's fought guys with good ring IQ".

Golovkin outpointed Jacobs in 12 rounds to remain undefeated at 37-0 and retained his WBA, IBF and WBC belts in the process. "I'm reliving those moments, the same thought process, same feelings, questioning myself", Jacobs said, recalling his treatments, rehab and comeback after being sidelined 18 months.

It will be compelling TV, like every Golovkin fight, including the most recent one. I hope he had his best training camp. But Jacobs skipped the weigh-in Saturday morning.

Unlike the other sanctioning organizations, the IBF requires fighters participating in title fights to participate in a weight check the morning of the fight at which they can not be more than 10 pounds heavier than the weight limit of the fight. Jacobs was just under the 160-pound limit for the Friday morning weigh-in, but the IBF requires fighters not to rehydrate more than 10 pounds for the fight.
