GENNADY GOLOVKIN will defend his WBC, IBF and WBA world middleweight titles against Danny Jacobs at Madison Square Garden on March 18.

The fight – which sees the world’s top two middleweights collide – will be aired on HBO pay-per-view in America.

The WBA had ordered the fight to be made as Jacobs holds their secondary title, with purse bids set to be held on Monday [December 19]. However both sides have been able to reach a deal before then and the fight has been officially confirmed.
