Boxing: Golovkin vs Wade Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Saturday night, HBO returns to PPV with their first major marquee fight of 2017. Undefeated KO machine Gennady Golovkin (36-0; 33 KO) returns to PPV to take on the tough challenge of Daniel Jacobs (32-1; 29 KO).

For quite some time now, fight fans (and Team Golovkin) have been itching for a true high level, marquee test for the Kazakh fighter. In WBA Middleweight champion Jacobs, they have... not quite that. But closer than we’ve yet seen. Jacobs is undefeated in 7 years, which includes coming back from cancer. Like GGG, he’s a powerful puncher, who hasn’t seen the final bell since defeating Ishe Smith back in 2009. He may not have the name recognition of Canelo, but this is a good opponent for Golovkin and an interesting match-up.

Also on the card is Golovkin’s frequent broadcast partner, The Little Drama Show, Roman Chocolatito Gonzalez. He takes on Srisaket Sor Rungvisai in his first fight since the death of his long-time trainer. This fight looks to be setting up a rematch with Carlos Cuadras, who also appears here.
