Jacobs: First Fight Was 50-50 - 100% I Win The Golovkin Rematch!

Former WBA 'regular' middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs (33-2, 29 KOs) is confident and has no doubt that he would win a rematch, if it ever happens, with IBF, IBO, WBC, WBA 'super' champion Gennady Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs).

Golovkin and Jacobs collided back in March. Jacobs was dropped in the fourth round, but came back swinging hard to make the contest very close before a packed crowd at New York's Madison Square Garden.

The scores were 114-113, 115-112 and 115-112 in Golovkin's favor to return his titles.

Jacobs returned to the ring two weeks ago and won a dominant decision over Luis Arias at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.

He as very proud of his performance and felt that he did enough to win the contest.

Jacobs was the first boxer to go the full twelve round distance with Golovkin, who coming into that fight had stopped 23 opponents in a row.

"I really feel that I executed the game plan and gave myself a two-round edge in the scoring, but it comes down to how the judges scored the rounds. Golovkin was known as the power-puncher, and they like aggressive fighters," Jacobs told Premier Boxing Champions.

"That opposes the actual essence of boxing, which I try to do, and that’s to hit and not get hit. But it says a lot that I out-landed him [144-126] in power shots. I came in as the better boxer, but I take my hat off to Golovkin for landing more jabs [105-to-31.]. At worst, it should have been a draw. It’s sad when you put your heart and soul into a fight and realize you’re being judged from a completely different standpoint than you thought."

Because of his experience in going twelve hard rounds with GGG, and Golovkin being 35 years old, Jacobs is beyond convinced that a rematch will go his way.

"That was a 50-50 fight, and I win the rematch, 100 percent. I know how to fight this guy, now, with no hesitancy because I’ve already experienced his best, and I’m still learning at 30 years old. But he’s an older guy, and it’s tough to teach an old dog new tricks," Jacobs said.

"It’s hard to knock out Triple-G, but we already know I have the speed advantage. I need to be more aggressive from the start. If I apply a little more aggression, stand my ground and keep his jab accuracy to a minimum, I win a decision."
