Froch: No Issue if Jacobs Would've Got Decision in Golovkin Bout

Former super middleweight champion Carl Froch believes Daniel Jacobs (32-2, 29 KOs) has the skill and the ability to become a superstar in the United States.

Back in March, Jacobs challenged IBF, IBO, WBA, WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin at New York's Madison Square Garden.

It was close-pitched battle that saw Jacobs survive an early knockdown and come back to take Golovkin the twelve round distance. It was the first time Golovkin had been taken the full distance and Jacobs became the first opponent to derail GGG's streak of 23 knockout wins.

Jacobs returns on Saturday night, when he faces undefeated contender Luis Arias at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.

The fight will be the first of a multi-fight deal with HBO and the first of a brand new promotional deal with Eddie Hearn of UK-based Matchroom Sport.

"I hope Daniel Jacobs puts on a real show this weekend. He could be just what American boxing needs, especially over here in the UK. Deontay Wilder might well be the WBC heavyweight champion and mentioned in the same breath as Anthony Joshua, while Errol Spence Jr looked the part when he beat Kell Brook, but it would be great to see more American fighters make their name outside the US," Froch told Sky Sports.

Jacobs believes that he was robbed of a decision win against Golovkin. Hearn also believes that Jacobs was the rightful winner.

While Froch did not score the fight, he felt it was close enough where he would have had no issue with Jacobs being announced as the winner. 

"I didn't score their fight, but I really wouldn't have gone against it, if he actually beat Triple G. He is awkward, has decent skills and is rangy. He was the first to really cause Golovkin problems, which is something he should build on. I don't know much about Luis Arias but I do know all eyes will be on Jacobs in New York, and I want to see him prove he belongs with the top middleweights," Froch said.

"For him, it's a shame that he couldn't get a rematch with Golovkin straight away. The problem for him is Golovkin-Canelo is likely to happen again, which leaves him in a bit of a limbo."
