Danny Jacobs is Open To Facing Gennady Golovkin

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

On August 9th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Daniel Jacobs (27-1, 24KOs) will face Jarrod Fletcher (18-1, 10KOs) in a Showtime televised clash for the vacant WBA 'regular' middleweight title.

If Jacobs is successful, he wants to face the best boxers at his weight - including the WBA's super champion, Gennady Golovkin (29-0, 26KOs). On July 26th at New York's Madison Square Garden, Golovkin will defend the IBO/WBA titles against former two-time champion Daniel Geale.

But Jacobs is aligned with powerful adviser/manager Al Haymon, and HBO, the network Golovkin fights for, rarely showcase Haymon fighters these days.

"Absolutely [I would fight Golovkin], I want to fight the best. I want to be in there with the best, whether it's Golovkin, Cotto, Martinez, whoever. Obviously its a business and you want to make as much as you can, because taking punches is not a career that you want to do for the rest of your life - but you have to fight the best in order to please the fans. I'm willing to take anything that the fans want. And if it makes sense, lets do it. But obviously there is a war going on [between HBO and Haymon] that I have no control over and it keeps fights like this from taking place, but if that can be worked out in the future then lets do it," Jacobs told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=Snake4380;14727910]Jacos doesn't really want to get Pirog-ed again... These Showtime guys always call out HBO fighters knowing the fight won't happen... Jacobs is another hype job who stepped up in competition and got dominated and now he's back to fighting…

I wouldn't mind. Not the kind of fight Golovkin should settle for, but if Jacobs is willing than he's willing. Haymon factor probably kills it.
