Gennady Golovkin: 'It's My Second Home.'

Will New York native Daniel Jacobs have the home court advantage on Saturday? Gennady Golovkin doesn't think so.

The unified middleweight champion may be from far away Kazakhstan but he considers Madison Square Garden his second home. Said Golovkin:

“I’m very excited coming here. It's my second home, the mecca of boxing in New York, Madison Square Garden.” 

Saturday's bout with Jacobs will be Golovkin's 6th in New York and the third straight time ( in NY ) that it will be held at the Mecca of Sports. That's not counting the previous two bouts he had at the Theater in MSG. So Golovkin does have the right to call Madison Square Garden his second home. And with his knockout performances there, he does have his own solid following in the arena.

Daniel Jacobs? The Miracle Man hails from Brooklyn and he won the Battle of New York against Peter Quillin in 2015. He will be making his 10th ring appearance in New York, his third in Madison Square Garden although it will be his first big fight there. Most of Jacobs' big fights in New York have been at the Barclays Center.

"I think of course Daniel has his fans and friends. I have my fans. I think it's very good for boxing and good for the sport. I don’t think it will be more one way or another, right now the fans will probably be 50/50.” 

The crowd may be split on this one. But the gambling odds have Golovkin a heavy favorite. The fans at the Throwdown Scoring app also have him as an 86.9% favorite to win:

But Daniel Jacobs is not the Miracle man for nothing. He's overcome bigger odds, not just in the ring but in life as well. You cannot count him out. Not with his speed, power and ring IQ. It's going to be great weekend of boxing. Middleweight madness. Download the Throwdown Scoring App to make your fight prediction.
