Daniel Jacobs: Billy Joe Saunders is Running Scared To Death!

By Michael Doss

Former WBA world middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs (32-2, 29KOs) is scheduled to return to the ring in the fall, but no opponent has been scheduled as of yet. 

The “Miracle Man” is one of the very best in a very stacked middleweight division right now.

The past March, Jacobs lost a very close decision to current IBF, WBC, IBO and WBA champion Gennady Golovkin (37-0-1, 33KOs).


The Brooklyn native is very eager to land a rematch with Golovkin or his recent stalemate partner Saul Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs), but finds the chances are very unlikely to happen anytime soon.

“Big things are coming abroad, I am truly the best middleweight in the world. I stay in the gym," Jacobs recently told ATG Radio

“Everything is going to be coming out real soon, we are going to have something locked really, really soon. I am really looking forward to what the future has in store and it is going to be exciting for me.

Another middleweight championship bout occurred on this past Saturday in London when WBO king Billy Joe Saunders (25-0, 12KOs) successfully retained his title against Willie Monroe Jr (21-3, 6KOs) by unanimous decision.

Jacobs weighed in his thoughts on the Saunders performance.

“I saw the highlights.  It’s hard for me to watch a whole Billy Joe Saunders fight. He is the pound for pound greatest at talking, when it comes to talking before a fight, Saunders is the Andre Ward, Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather of the whole sport," Jacobs said.

With his strong belief of himself being the best middleweight in the world, the options of facing either Golovkin or Canelo might be a distant occurrence.  Jacobs has the desire to be world champion again.

Jacobs weighed in on his other “Big Fight” options.

“It would probably be BJ Saunders, who is running scared to death.  I mean this guy is calling out a welterweight (Amir Khan) who lost. He got knocked out over a year, year and a half ago. He is calling this guy out. So Billy Joe Saunders [is someone I want], only because he has the belt and me having the title only makes the risk for guys like GGG and Canelo to fight me," Jacobs said.
