  Golovkin Gets By Tougher-Than-Expected Jacobs  
Photos: Tom Hogan - Hoganphotos/K2 Promotions

Gennady Golovkin (37-0, 33 KO's) won a closely-contested 12-round unanimous decision over Danny Jacobs (32-2, 29 KO's). Jacobs wasn't given a big chance to score an upset, but proved he was a force to reckon with, giving Golovkin all he could handle. Neither did much in the opening rounds, but Jacobs used his jab and right hands to keep Golovkin off of him. In round 4, Golovkin finally connected and dropped Jacobs following two lefts to the chin. Both men would engage in the 5th, but Jacobs would take control in the 6th, and Golovkin was looking very one-dimensional, searching for one punch to win it, not throwing a single body shot.

Golovkin would hurt Jacobs again, staggering him to the ropes, but could not capitalize on it. Jacobs had his biggest round in the 11th, landing both the left and right, yelling in victory as Golovkin had not seen leather on his own face like that before. Golovkin closed the night in the 12th which lead to final scores of 114-113 and 115-112 twice for Golovkin. Both men agreed to a rematch down the line, but Golovkin showed major interest in getting Canelo Alvarez to finally agree to fight.


  Sor Rungvisai Hands Chocolatito First Defeat
In Close-Fought, 12-Round, Bloody War
 
Photos: Tom Hogan - Hoganphotos/K2 Promotions

Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (42-4-1, 38 KO's) won the WBC World Super Flyweight Title with a 12 round Majority Decision over previously unbeaten Roman Gonzalez (46-1, 38 KO's). The fight was close and hard-fought where both men had their moments. It started with Sor Rungvisai dropping Gonzalez in the opening round with a right to the body. Gonzalez regrouped and appeared to take control in the mid-rounds. A nasty cut on the left eye and one on the scalp of Gonzales from accidental headbutts had his face covered with blood from round 3 and up. Gonzalez hurt Sor Rungvisai in the 6th, who was also deducted a point for the repeated headbutts. Gonzalez closed the show late and looked to have edged out a close one, but final scores disagreed as they read 113-113 and 114-112 twice for Sor Rungvisai.


  Cuadras Wins With Mediocre Performance  
Photos: Tom Hogan - Hoganphotos/K2 Promotions

Carlos Cuadras (35-1-1, 26 KO's) looked less than stellar with a 10-round unanimous decision over tough David Carmona (20-4-5, 8 KO's). Cuadras simply did not look himself tonight, throwing wild shots, missing wide, and getting tagged to the body and head repeatedly. Cuadras would build up an early lead, but was hurt bad in the 7th from a vicious body attack. Carmona would hurt Cuadras again to the body, but could not get him out. Final scores were 97-93 twice and 96-94 for Cuadras.

Ryan Martin (18-0, 11 KO's) stopped hard-as-nails Bryant Cruz (17-2, 8 KO's) in the 8th. Martin was just too big and too active for Cruz to keep up. Cruz was game however, and wanted no part in the fight being stopped, mentioning to the ref, "I may look bad, but I'm not hurt". The ref did eventually waive the fight off after one too many unanswered punches against the ropes at :45 into the 8th round.


  Amir Mansour Wins Majority
Decision Over Travis Kauffman

In a 12-round heavyweight war that lived up to the hype, Amir Mansour (23-2-1, 16 KOs) was able to take a majority decision (114-114, 117-111, 115-113) over Travis Kauffman (31-2, 23 KOs) in the main event of Premier Boxing Champions: The Next Round on Bounce from Santander Arena in Reading, PA.

  Golovkin vs. Jacobs - IBF Same-Day Weigh-In
Stated LINDSEY TUCKER of the IBF, "Golovkin is defending his IBF title, however Jacobs cannot acquire the title with a victory because he did not participate in the required IBF same-day weigh-in."
 
GThis morning, Unified Middleweight World Champion GENNADY “GGG” GOLOVKIN, (36-0, 33 KO’s) weighed in at 169.6 at the IBF same day weigh-in ahead of tonight’s highly anticipated divisional showdown against WBA Middleweight World Champion and Mandatory Challenger, DANIEL “THE MIRACLE MAN” JACOBS, (32-1, 29 KO’s) at The Mecca of Boxing, Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Jacobs did not appear for the IBF same day weigh-in. Golovkin is the holder of the WBC, WBA, IBF and IBO Middleweight World Titles.

The Mail Pouch:
McGarry Weighs In On GGG vs. Jacobs
 
By William Trillo
As always, we appreciate when our faithful reader David McGarry chimes in with his thoughts about the big fights, but on this one it’s hard to agree with his insight. Although his thoughts are concise it seems his prediction on the eventual outcome is way off.

Dear Mr. Trillo,

On March 18, there will be plenty of people in New York with sore heads because they celebrated St. Patrick's Day a little too hard. Later that day, it's the turn of the world's two best middleweight boxers to inflict headaches on each other when they meet at Madison Square Gardens. Gennady Golovkin puts his titles on the line against mandatory challenger Daniel Jacobs. Both have won nearly all their fights by knockout, so it has been easy to sell this fight as a shootout along the lines of Hagler v Hearns.

  Lemieux Knocks Stevens Out Cold In 3;
Gamboa Returns To Win Snoozefest
 
David Lemieux (37-3, 33 KO's) landed a left hook that sent Curtis Stevens (29-6, 21 KO's) unconscious before he hit the canvas and out cold for several minutes in the third round of their main event. The fight was turning into a real war as Lemieux jumped on Stevens from the first bell and had him hurt twice. Stevens bounced back in the 2nd hurting Lemieux to the body. Both men were trading in the 3rd, but as both landed their left hooks, it was Stevens that crashed to the canvas and was immediately waived off at 1:59. Stevens would not regain consciousness for a number of minutes and was shown moving his hands as he was taken out on a stretcher. We hope that Stevens is ok after his hospital visit.

On the undercard, Yuriorkis Gamboa (26-1, 17 KO's) won a relatively boring 10 round unanimous decision over Rene Alvarado. Gamboa didn't do much in his comeback fight after a 15 month layoff, but Alvarez did even less which won nearly every round for Gamboa. Gamboa would slip from a grazing punch in the 10th which was ruled a knockdown. Final scores were 97-92, 97-92 and 97-93.

  Thurman Gets Split Decision Over Garcia To Unify  
Keith Thurman (now 28-0-1 ND, 22 KO's) unified the WBA & WBC Welterweight Titles with a Split Decision over previously unbeaten Danny Garcia (now 33-1, 19 KO's). The fight started right away with Thurman jumping on Garcia, landing big shots, nearly taking Garcia's head off in the opening round. Thurman would control the pace for the next few rounds as Garcia had no answers. In round 6, however, the tide changed and it looked as if Thurman began to take a break. Thurman did the same for the next few rounds as well and that allowed Garcia to pick up a pace of his own. By round 9 booing from the crowd ensued. Thurman decided to stay away from engaging in the final two rounds, much like Oscar De La Hoya did in his fight with Felix Trinidad, which ultimately cost him the fight. Lucky for Thurman, only one judge gave Garcia the win. Final scores were 116-112 for Thurman, 115-113 for Garcia, and 115-113 for Thurman.

The Mail Pouch: McGarry Breaks Down
Haye vs. Bellew & Thurman vs. Garcia
 
It's a big weekend from sea to shining sea this weekend, From the big boys to the Mid-sized we should have some good action. Let's take a look at what our faithful reader David McGarry has to say:

Dear Mr. Trillo,

This is a big weekend for boxing, and I thought I'd share my thoughts on the fights for March 4.

At the weigh in yesterday, David Haye looked like a guy who had done some weightlifting and cut a lot of corners in training. He really did look like someone who had trained on a yacht and enjoyed a few cocktails in the jacuzzi after each training session. I doubt he did much roadwork - if any - in preparation. The fact that his trainer, Shane McGuigan, has been quoted in the past as not believing running is much use to a boxer also makes it likely David Haye is relying on weight training and pad work to get the job done.

Allow me to explain.

Canelo Alvarez and Chavez Jr. wrapped up their press tour on Friday in Los Angeles in front of throngs of Mexican boxing fans. The fight that takes place in Las Vegas on Cinco De Mayo weekend will most certainly see Canelo as the odds on favorite to win. But if the crowd support I saw on Friday is any indication of whom the Mexican fans support, then right now that would go to Chavez Jr. Whether or not it’s the sentimental support is due to his legendary father Chavez Sr. the fact remains that Julio Jr. appears to have an edge in the hearts of Mexican boxing fans.

Grant Brothers Taking Bute To The Promised Land
 
By William Trillo
If there is one thing no one will question it’s that Lucian Bute wants to become a World Champion again. The former 168 pound IBF champ has had a couple of bumps in the road recently but with the spark of trainers Howard and Otis Grant, Lucian has remained a relevant and top contender. Tonight in Quebec City Bute will take on the undefeated Eleider Alvarez. The winner of this fight has all but been promised a shot at Adonis Stevenson, the WBC Light Heavyweight champ, who like Bute and Alvarez, fights out of Montreal. With the Grant's in his corner Bute is one step away from seeing his chance to rise to the top come true.
