Daniel Jacobs skipped the second-day weigh-in that the IBF required for their 160-pound championship match in March 2017 at The Garden. Jacobs’ strategic move agitated Golovkin, whose team contended that Jacobs gained an advantage by not having to weigh in at 170 pounds or less the morning of a closely contested, 12-round fight Golovkin won by unanimous decision.

Golovkin doesn’t expect to encounter a similar problem Saturday morning. Kazakhstan’s Golovkin and Ukraine’s Sergiy Derevyanchenko each made weight Friday afternoon at Manhattan Center for their IBF/IBO middleweight title fight Saturday night at Madison Square Garden.

Golovkin, 37, stepped on the New York State Athletic Commission’s scale at 159¼ pounds, just below the middleweight limit of 160. Derevyanchenko, 33, officially weighed 159 pounds.

[QUOTE=PittyPat;20101321]Golovkin looking extra-thick in the upper back. Hoping for a real slugfest between these two – no chess matching, just bombs.[/QUOTE] [COLOR="Navy"][FONT="Comic Sans MS"]And it was a flat out war.[/FONT][/COLOR]

I haven't seen GGG being so much shredded before. It's not Mr. Olympia sport, it's box but still... Sergey better be The TECHNICIAN for real!

GGG looks drained af. The only thing I noticed was the Adam's apple.That's the only prominent thing in the pics. Completely drained.
