NEW YORK: Exhausted beyond anything he'd felt in the ring, Gennady Golovkin could barely lift his collection of title belts.
Danny Jacobs thought they should have been in his possession.
Golovkin outlasted Jacobs in a superb 12-round defence of his middleweight titles on Saturday night. Both fighters are knockout artists, yet this one went the distance -- the first time GGG has not had a KO in 24 fights, and his first time going 12 rounds. The Kazakh won 115-112 on two judges' cards and 114-113 on the other.
