New, comments

Daniel Jacobs explains what makes him different from any other opponent who has faced Gennady Golovkin.

As Daniel Jacobs gets ready to take on unified titleholder Gennady Golovkin, he talks about his chance at making a huge statement.

"I feel excited, I feel anxious, I feel nervous. I feel thrilled, I feel anxiety...but ultimately I'm just excited and can't wait."

On what type of Golovkin he expects to face in the ring:

"I don't know what Golovkin we're gonna see but I know I'm prepared for the best...As long as I'm prepared and ready for whatever he brings I'm sure it's just gonna be an entertaining fight. "

On what's different between him and Golovkin's other opponents:

"I feel like GGG has fought fast guys, he's fought strong guys, he's fought guys with good ring IQ, so on and so forth, but he's never fought all those guys in one. And I definitely think I bring all those attributes to the table...I'm just looking forward to exploiting what he does wrong, and what he does bad and his flaws, and bringing the best foot forward because at the end of the day it's all about skills, mentality, and heart."
