NEW YORK - Exhausted beyond anything he'd previously felt in the ring, Gennady Golovkin could barely lift his collection of title belts.

Danny Jacobs thought they should have been handed to him, but Golovkin was awarded the decision after their superb 12-round middleweight championship bout at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.

Both fighters are knockout artists, yet this one went the distance - the first time in 24 fights that Golovkin didn't score a KO. The Kazakh won 115-112 on two judges' cards and 114-113 on the other.
