Andy Lee makes winning comeback with unanimous decision in NY

Andy Lee makes winning comeback with unanimous decision in NY

The AP scores the fight 77-74, with several close rounds.

What it certainly was though was a cracking clash that was enthralling for every one of the 36 minutes.

Going toe to toe with GGG again is not in Jacobs' control. After easy Ryan Martin and Carlos Cuadra's easy wins, in the co-main event Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez faced Wisaksil Wanget and it highlighted the night.

The Kazakh was also cleverly closing the distance by pawing out the jab and edging his feet forward. It nearly looked as if Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) would become the monster we had expected when he dropped Jacobs with a right hand in the fourth round. I needed a quality fight, not just the 12th round'.

There was a time when Jacobs could not walk but he never gave up on his identity as a boxer. A friend of mine asked me "why there is so much scrutiny on Golovkin performance".

By the sixth, Jacobs had regrouped, He clipped Golovkin with an overhand right early and put together some effective combination punching to the body.

The American was growing in confidence and predictions that this would be Golovkin's toughest test were already proven to be true.

The former world champion struggled at times during the contest as Carmona sensed an opportunity to cause an upset. The seventh round had action that continued after the bell.

The Ocala Star Banner has reported that a very venomous tan and yellow monocled cobra has escaped from a Florida home. She said the snakes are typically shy, tend to hide from people and only strike if threatened.

Golovkin called Jacobs, "a very good fighter" and was agreeable to a rematch in the future. At the end, he landed a left-uppercut followed by a right hand for his strongest round to that point.

Jacobs went so far as to say Golovkin only got the decision because the sport wants Golovkin-Alvarez to happen. Such unwavering confidence that Sanchez's man could lose weight, or step up a division, and maintain his knockout power was wrecked by Danny Jacobs on Saturday, who was still trying to edge the scorecards in the 12th round.

Both men launched fierce attacks in the final moments as they looked to steal the final three minutes and the victory.

Judges ruled Golovkin, a middleweight champion from Kazakhstan, the victor, 115-112, 115-112 and 114-113.

Golovkin's big advantage was in the first half of the fight. "Everything is good", said Golovkin, keen to stay on track for a lucrative potential showdown against Canelo Alvarez.

However, when it was over, we got a surprise decision of Wanget was the new WBC World Super flyweight champion.

David Lemieux chose not to do morning of weigh in before the Curtis Stevens fight, and it seemed to not impact him, beyond making him ineligible to win an IBF lesser 160 belt.

The Kazakh won 115-112 on two judges' cards and 114-113 on the other in Madison Square Garden.
