Kid Hersh Talks Daniel Jacobs vs Gennady Golovkin – In this latest Boxing Channel report, we are joined by our TBC analyst Kid Hersh to review the potential middleweight showdown between Daniel Jacobs (32-1) and Gennady Golovkin (36-0).
Talk around the fight has really picked up in recent weeks and the latest news is that the fight will go to a purse bid after the two parties failed to agree on the money split. Jacobs brings the WBA version of the 160 pound world title to the table while Golovkin is the holder of the WBA, WBC and IBF World Middleweight titles. A fight between the two would pit the #1 and #2 ranked middleweights in the world at the respected Transnational Boxing Rankings Board. The winner would hold three of the four major versions of the world titles out there so the match is a potential title “unification” bout. The WBO’s world title belt at 160 pounds is held by England’s Billy Joe Saunders.
Though the fight may not happen in the desired December time-frame, we asked Kid Hersh to break the match-up down for us as only he can do.
