Gennady Golovkin vs. Daniel Jacobs: There is NO Rematch Clause

By Steve Kim

Plenty is on the line for Gennady Golovkin (36-0, 33 KOs) this coming Saturday night as he faces Daniel Jacobs (32-1, 29 KOs) from the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Most of all, Golovkin's collection of middleweight titles (the WBA, IBO, WBC and IBF) are at stake, along with the possibility of other potential big bouts that he has so yearned for.

"That's been Gennady's dream the whole time, to unify the middleweight division to say he's truly the best one in the division,' 'said Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions, who has been the architect of Golovkin's rise to prominence the past several years. Currently, the only belt that Golovkin doesn't have is the WBO title that is held by Billy Joe Saunders.

A victory this upcoming weekend could led to a bout with Saunders in June and other big money fights in the fall.

"I really think it opens up a lot of doors. If (Julio Cesar) Chavez Jr somehow upsets 'Canelo' (Saul Alvarez), then that a huge fight. That's a fight we tried to make in the past, as well," said Loeffler, referring to the May 6th showdown between the two Mexican stars.

But none of this will matter if Golovkin can't get past the foe directly in front of him.

"If Gennady has an off-night or a misstep against a guy like Jacobs, who's an extremely dangerous fighter, who will take advantage of any opportunity that he has with his punching power, that's a very dangerous fight for Gennady. So there's a lot at risk, there's no rematch clause," pointed out Loeffler.

"Danny, if he's successful, he wins all the titles that we worked so hard to put together. But that's what the fans react to. It's a risk-versus-reward situation where if they perceive the risk, they really want to see it. I don't think we're going to see the 12th round in this fight."

I was very confident of Danny Jacobs pulling off the upset when the fight was 1st announced but now I'm starting to have my doubts about it. I hope he wins but my gut is telling me that he might…
