title Golovkin separating myth from facts

By Angel Flowers:

GGG More Myth Than Legend

Gennady “GGG” Golovkin went to battle with the unheralded Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs this past Saturday night on Pay Per View. From that fight we were able to determine a lot about the middleweight kingpin separating myth from the legend he has inspired. Guys like Golovkin remind me of Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson, an absolute monster until they step in the ring with a semi live body. Golovkin was given a boxing lesson almost the entire fight, his fourth round knockdown of Jacobs was more of a tackle but giving the champion the benefit of doubt we will say it was the only real time he got to Jacobs. Meanwhile Jacobs, a man who was thoroughly dominated then knocked out by Dmitry Pirog looked to have been given Golovkin all kinds of problems, which thoroughly explains to this writer why Golovkin has been acting the way he has.

By Paul “Paparazzi” Jones: Rarely are boxing fans treated to a fight of the year and upset of the year candidate with a controversial ending on the same night, let alone in the same fight. This kind of ‘March Madness’ is often reserved for upsets by a Cinderella team who runs deep into the NCAA basketball tournament.
