However, the bout turned out to be an intriguing technical clash at times, with Jacobs' fast hands and switch-hitting style - as well as his sheer size and physical strength - causing the fearsome Golovkin considerable problems on occasions. It was a unanimous but close victory, 115-112, 115-112 and 114-113.

American Jacobs, meanwhile, had admitted that it a dream come true for him as he prepares to step out at the iconic venue on Saturday night. I do think that this is flawless timing for me.
