CONTEST: Win A Signed Boxing Glove By GGG!

"I'm not saying Jacobs wins the fight", admits the professional sports analyst.

Golovkin is a simple man with his fighting style and his wide open defense. And coming through that ordeal six years ago has given him strength. Golovkin is very slow of hand, and he doesn't react well when punches are thrown his way. While Golovkin has been one of the most avoided fighters of the past few years, he has faced a few legitimately hard opponents like Kell Brook, David Lemieux and Daniel Geale - all former world titlists.

A sluggish Golovkin eventually put Brook away in the fifth round after fracturing the Englishman's eye socket. That came from Brook leaning forward at the wrong time just when Golovkin was throwing a left hook. He has got one-punch power.

Golovkin, who holds the WBC, IBF, and IBO middleweight titles as well as the WBA super middleweight belt, is listed at -840 odds, or about 7-to-1, while challenger Daniel Jacobs (32-1, 29 KOs) comes in at +660.

Prior to Yale, Earnshaw worked three seasons as a volunteer at Central Connecticut State (2011-14) and two years as a graduate assistant at LIU (2008-'10)."I would like to thank Director of Athletics Brad Cohen and Deputy Director of Athletics Margaret Alaimo for bringing me back to Brooklyn", Earnshaw said. I'm putting money on Danny.

"I know he has good boxing IQ". He does [have enough power to hurt Triple G]. Brooks wasn't a true middleweight and if Jacobs hits the sweet spot early, things could get interesting.

With that being said, Jacobs definitely has the pop to give GGG issues.

EH: Based on your experience in the ring with him, does Jacobs have that power to keep GGG honest? Brook's trainer was so anxious about his fighter taking more damage from Golovkin that he leaped to the side of the ring, and threw the white towel towards the two fighters. Smart money is on a finish either way, though Golovkin is the heavy favorite.

This could be a calculated move on Jacobs' part to bypass the mandated Saturday-morning weigh-in, thereby refusing to constrain himself for what is by far the biggest fight of his career. Golovkin doesn't get the credit for being a skilled boxer that he should.

Since then, Golovkin has steam rolled through his opponents like a Soviet freight train. The 34-year-old Golovkin, known as GGG, is one of the sport's best and most powerful fighters. Golovkin won't be the same fighter after Jacobs hurts him for the first time. Each man has fought men in the ring and knocked out plenty, but I don't think Jacobs has tasted power on his chin like the kind Triple G dispenses regularly.

Despite that, Golovkin has not taken his combat against the American lightly.
