Boxing Challenge

The boxing challenge hits New York City with the return of the man that holds three of the four middleweight titles in the main event of the weekend.
I lead the boxing challenge 26-24 over Ramon Malpica.

Gennady Golovkin defends his WBA,WBC and IBF titles against Daniel Jacobs,who holds the junior varsity title of the WBA and as often is said before a Golovkin fight-is the latest "best guy GGG has ever faced".
We previewed the fight on fightheads (go listen!) and I've said many times that Jacobs is just 1-1 against top 20 competition,so take that for what you will...

The undercard features two junior bantamweights fights in a prep for a rematch later this year of one of the better fights of
WBC champion Roman Gonzalez defends for the first time since being taken to the limit by Carlos Cuadras against the man that Cuadras dethroned in Srisaket Sor Rungvisai.
I've wondered if Gonzalez has finally hit the wall between great and very good with his rise in weight and he'll have a good test in Rungvisai.
Carlos Cuadras stays active for the rematch against Gonzalez against tough David Carmona,who went the distance with WBO champ Naoya Inoye in his last fight.
