One of the biggest punchers in the sport of boxing, Jacobs has won his last 12 fights, all by stoppage.

"Danny is a great fighter, and a big test for me. I look forward to another "Big Drama Show" in New York City," said Golovkin.

Stated Jacobs, "I'm excited about facing Gennady and proving I'm the best middleweight in the world.I'm bringing all the belts back to Brooklyn with me."
