Golovkin, excited to be fighting at MSG again is looking forward to getting back in the ring and proving his worth.
“I love fighting at Madison Square Garden, it feels like my second home”, said Golovkin. “Danny is a great fighter, one of the best middleweights and a big test for me. I look forward to another ‘Big Drama Show’ in New York City.”
Jacobs, the WBA regular champion is determined to prove the doubters wrong and emerge as a unified champion.
“I’m excited about facing Gennady and proving I’m the best middleweight in the world,” said Jacobs. “On March 18th I’m bringing all the belts back to Brooklyn with me.”
Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions, Golovkin’s promoter, is confident this event will sell out quickly.
“We’re very excited to promote this outstanding matchup of the two best middleweights in the world, Gennady Golovkin and Danny Jacobs,” said Loeffler. “It doesn’t get any better than this, the World Middleweight Championship at The Mecca of Boxing, it’s truly going to be a memorable evening.”
“With Gennady’s previous fight at Madison Square Garden last October against David Lemieux selling out and Danny’s huge Brooklyn fan base, we anticipate tickets will move very quickly.”
Team Jacobs are confident their man has what it takes to dethrone Golovkin and bring the belts back to Brooklyn.
“March 18th is a big night for the boxing world,” said Keith Connolly of Team Jacobs. “You have the two best middleweights in the world going head to head for the majority of the belts. What else could anyone ask for? This is a fight the boxing fans deserve.”
“We want to thank Al Haymon for all his tireless work over the last nine years helping put Danny into this position to have an opportunity to beat Gennady Golovkin, one of the best fighters in the world. Come March 18th Danny will come out on top and he will be taking all the belts back to Brooklyn, you can count on that.”
