Jacobs (32-1) is the WBA’s world champion at 160 pounds and he is facing the undefeated Golovkin (36-0) who brings with him a handful of title belts in the middleweight division. As such, the bout is considered a "title unification" bout and certainly involves two of the top rated middleweights in the world today.
For the past several years HBO has been grooming Golovkin as a box office star and they have been pairing him with #1 pound for pound fighter Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez (46-0) and this event is no different. GOnzalez returns to defend his WBC super flyweight title as he takes on Thailand’s Wiskasil Wangek.
