Gennady Golovkin faces his toughest test to date when he takes on Daniel Jacobs in New York during the early hours of Sunday morning.

The WBA super and WBC and IBF world middleweight titles are on the line as the two men, who boast an impressive 62 knockouts between them, clash at the historic Madison Square Garden.

Undefeated Golovkin is widely considered the best middleweight on the planet but can go some way to cementing his legacy with victory over Jacobs, who has lost just one of his 33 fights.

Victories over the likes of Martin Murray, Willie Monroe Jr, David Lemieux and a bulked-up Kell Brook have established GGG in the pound for pound listings but his failure to entice Saul “Canelo” Álvarez into the ring have denied the Kazakh the career defining fight he craves.

With Canelo, or at least the Mexican’s promotional team, seemingly reluctant to enter negotiations the hard-hitting Jacobs probably represents the next best option.

The Brooklyn native is on a 12 fight winning streak and his power is unquestioned having banished the likes of Sergio Mora, Peter Quillin and Jarrod Fletcher inside the distance.

And Jacobs, who was kept out of the ring for more than 18 months after being diagnosed with a life-threatening form of bone cancer in 2011, believes Brook exposed Golovkin and says he is the man to take advantage of any decline in the 34-year-old.

“Carl Froch said it best when he said Triple-G’s best years are behind him,” Jacobs. “I kind of agree with that, even though I think he’s still a dangerous fighter and he’s still a big threat. I do think that this is perfect timing for me.

“Even though Kell Brook wasn’t close to beating Triple-G, he did expose a lot of different things, as far as movement, speed, ring generalship. He just didn’t have the sheer size to be effective, especially once that eye got hurt he was done for.”

Unsurprisingly Golovkin dismisses any talk that he is past his best, and hints that his performance against the naturally smaller Brook may not have been his best simply because it didn’t have to be.

“It’s not just my power — not relying on one big, crazy, lucky punch — but my balance, timing and position,” Golovkin said. “With perfect timing, perfect positioning, feeling comfortable … my punches are much harder, like boom! Big show!

“A good punch is a punch. Plus, big power might last only a couple rounds. It’s more about positioning and timing.

“I know I’m ready, 100 percent.”
