In the HBO Pay-Per-View co-feature, Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez will defend his WBC super flyweight title against Srisaket Sor Rungvisai. Both of them also took part in the WBC's 30-day weight check.

Gonzalez weighed in at 122.6-pounds, and Rungvisai weighed 125.9-pounds. Both boxers were under the WBC's maximum weight of 126.5-pounds.

Born and raised in Brownsville, a location  that has produced many legendary world champions, including Mike Tyson and Riddock Bowe, Jacobs has scored great KO'S against outstanding opponents during his nine years as a pro.

"Gennady is a great fighter, he always has several fight plans. They can plan what they want and overestimate me, but in the end I will be victorious on March 18," said Jacobs, from his training camp in Oakland, California.

In the most impressive fight of his career, on December 5, 2015, Jacobs dramatically defeated unbeaten former champion Peter Quillin in the first round in Brooklyn, New York.

Most recently, Jacobs knocked out Sergio Mora  in the seventh round on September 9, 2016. Jacobs has won his last 12 fights by knockout.
The card is presented by K2 Promotions, tickets for "Middleweight Madness" cost $ 1000, $ 600, $ 400, $ 300, $ 200 and $ 100 dollars, and can be purchased at the Madison Square Garden box office and online at www.ticketmaster.com  or Www.thegarden.com
