Consensus middleweight champion Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin will face Daniel Jacobs on March 18, and many are expecting the former to unleash another beating over a presumably over-matched opponent.
Three months ahead of his showdown with Daniel Jacobs, consensus middleweight champion Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin is receiving stiff criticism from a retired fight legend.
For the better part of the last three years, rumors have swirled about the possibility of former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (49-2-1, 32 KO) fighting Gennady Golovkin and/or fellow countryman Canelo Alvarez.

Daniel "Danny" Jacobs is an American professional boxer who has held the WBA (Regular) middleweight title since 2014.
Nicknamed the "Miracle Man," Jacobs' career was almost cut short in 2012 due to cancer. He went on to make a full recovery after spending 19 months out of the sport.
On December 5, 2015 Jacobs scored his biggest win against Peter Quillin by TKO in the first round. Howeverr, many, including Floyd Mayweather felt that the fight was halted too early.
Immediately after Canelo Alvarez captured the WBO Junior Middleweight on September 17, by stopping incumbent title holder Liam Smith with a vicious body shot, Golden Boy Promotions founder Oscar De la Hoya dropped an unexpected bomb on the media in attendance at the post-fight press conference, announcing an eight figure offer made to Gennady Golovkin for a potential fight deal with his Mexican superstar.
