Video: Bernard Hopkins on Golovkin vs Jacobs: I had Daniel winning by atleast a split decision

“I had Daniel by at least split decision but I wouldn’t have been upset if it was a draw. Worst case scenario and I went on the record the next day speaking with a couple of reporters that I believe that Daniel Jacobs won the fight by split decision but worst case scenario, worst case scenario, I wouldn’t have been upset if it was a draw because I believe that he deserved the benefit of the doubt – not because he was brave, not because he beat cancer, none of those things – but the way he fought.”

“There were some rounds that were so close where I believe they literally had to close their eyes and mark a box to say who won that round. Jacobs fought such a patient, technical and poised fight, even after the knockdown, he set up a blueprint for the next man – Canelo, to come along and study that after he takes care of his business on Cinco de Mayo, May 6th – and come along and realize that Triple G isn’t getting better. He is getting comfortable.  You get comfortable mentally first and then you get comfortable physically and then you fall off. Most long reigning champions do.”
