Everyone wants to see Golovkinvs Jacobs but the problem is that the management of both camps cannot agree on the purse amount for the fight to take place. Free bet offers sites have GGG as the favorite to win the bout but it still has a long way to go before it gets the go ahead.To resolve the battle between the management companies, the fight will be available for TV companies to bid for it.. The reason it has come down to this is largely down to the WBA ordering the boxers to begin negotiations on the 11th of September and have given them up to 30 days to complete negotiations so the fight that fans wants to see will finally take place.
The deadline set by the World Boxing Association is now only a few days away and apparently the fighters are no closer to sorting out a fight. If they cannot then it will go to a purse bid with the highest bidder getting the right to show the fight. It is unsure what is holding up the process and Tom Loeffler who manages GGG says that it is down to Jacobs management on why it has not been sorted out.
One rumor that is circulating the internet about why the holdup is taking is place is that Jacobs is wanting the fight staged in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center. The reason he wants it here is that he is from Brooklyn so he wants to put on a show for his home fans.Golovkin currently is the second biggest name in boxing behind Mayweather so they feel that the decision of where the bout takes place should be down to them on and not Jacobs management team.
With negotiations been dragged out, boxing fans may have to wait until 2017 before the two boxers fight each other. It all depends on how the purse negotiation goes and which companies bid for the rights. The original date set was supposed to happen on the 10th of December with HBO staging the event.
Golovkin has one of the most impressive records in the history of boxing, fighting 36 times with no losses and 32 wins coming by way of knockout. It is why he is the free bet offers favorite to win and it would come as a huge shock if he were to be beaten.
Jacobs over his last few boxing matches has not been fighting top quality fighters which would have made the fight even bigger had he done so. His last four fights have been against Peter Quillin, Caleb Truax and twice he fought Sergio Mora. The best fight was between Jacobs VsQuillin but the others did not live up to the hype. It did not help him to build a bigger reputation as one of the best boxers in the world by taking on lower opposition boxers.
U.S fans are desperate to see Golovkin Vs Jacobs and it is damaging the sport due to the fact that it cannot be arranged. It is one of the reasons why the UFC growing rapidly as they do not have the problem of dealing with agents or management companies when negotiating their fights. If the fight does not take place soon then Jacobs will be stripped of his WBA belt and will leave him in a less powerful place to negotiate. Hopefully, for the sport of Boxing, it can be arranged quickly and we can see if GGG lives up to his reputation as one of the best boxers.
