Round 1: GGG
Landed the more telling jabs, or power jabs that actually snapped Jacobs head back. Think Jacobs had a right hand that landed just behind GGGs ear or maye caught on his shoulders, didnt seem fazed.
Round 2: Jacobs
Clear round with jabs from a distance an right hands. Throwing GGG off rhythm is seems since whenever hes getting set, Jacobs goes side to side or throws.
Round 3: GGG
Lands nice jabs, inside shots coming in to the body and one head. Jacobs has a moment at end of the round where he lands this overhand right. The english commentary seems biased towards Jacobs like HBO is towards GGG haha
Round 4: GGG with KD
GGG was outlanding him all round anyway really, so not exactly impossible to score even if there was no KD. But I guess it could be a different round with a KD.
Round 5: GGG
GGG landed the better shots, Jacobs did nothing for the first 2 minutes and then started to engage, land some and take some
Round 6: Jacobs
GGG didn't really do much the first half aside from take a few jabs, and in the second half Jacobs was starting to land more jabs, a nice left hook right hand combo and nice work just before the ten sec mark
Round 7: Jacobs
Think Jacobs just took it, he was the better fighter the entire round imo, he did back up quite a bit and when he did GGG landed a few big right hands and hands to the body so could go either way.
Round 8: GGG
GGG started it well, then kinda trailed off in the middle where Jacobs took over and started to land to the body and then GGG picked it up at the end. Jacobs seems to land a lot of hard shots on arms and gloves and it sounds impressive but isn't scoring while GGG is doing the cleaner work. The english commentary won't stop going on about how Jacobs is taking GGGs punches well, whys he even taking them to start with?
Round 9: Jacobs just
Close as hell round, no thanks to GGG, he gives away the majority of it and around the minute mark he starts to jab nicely, and start landing clean shots hurting Jacobs and moving him around the ring. Realistically could go either way.
Round 10: Jacobs
Clear Jacobs round, was all around better started landing jabs and right hands, and by the end mixing it up with GGG
Round 11: Either way?
GGG started it quite well and Jacobs finished quite strong late, but both were trading and landing so either way
Round 12: Either way?
Close round either way
Few notes after watching, Jacobs did well but I think people were too surprised at how well he did. It was a very close fight and usually the benefit of the doubt goes to the champ.
Wonder how much Jacobs weighed? Am surprised nobody asked him at the post fight press. Just proves that GGG is that small a middleweight and that moving to SMW probably ain't for him.
And I think people are just surprised that GGG wasn't in full search and destroy mode and that would of been pretty dumb/risky if he was.
I can see it being a GGG win or a Jacobs win, but the KD made the difference so there it is, power counted for something even if it didn't finish the fight.
