Daniel Jacobs Serves As Guest Analyst For 4/19 SHO Card

Middleweight contender Daniel Jacobs is trading in his gloves for a microphone, at least for one night.

 

The inspirational cancer survivor will serve as guest analyst for this Saturday's SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING telecast live on SHOWTIME (9 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast) from the DC Armory in Washington, D.C.

 

Jacobs will step in for critically acclaimed analyst Paulie Malignaggi, who will challenge IBF Welterweight World Champion Shawn Porter in the co-feature of the world championship tripleheader.

 

"It's an honor to have this opportunity on such a historic boxing event," Jacobs said. "I'm excited to be the guy on the outside that will provide the viewers with the type of insight only a fighter can provide. I also look forward to the opportunity to see the sport in a different perspective and gain more of an appreciation for the craft.

 

"I know I'll be in good hands alongside Al Bernstein, Mauro Ranallo and the rest of the SHOWTIME crew giving the viewers and fans a great night of boxing."


In the main event, IBF Light Heavyweight World Champion Bernard Hopkins will face WBA World Champ Beibut Shumenov in a highly anticipated world championship unification while WBO Middleweight World Champ Peter Quillin will risk his title againstLukas Konecny in the opening bout of the telecast.

 

Saturday's telecast will air live immediately following the premiere of Episode 1 of ALL ACCESS: Mayweather vs. Maidana, the most recent installment of the Emmy® Award-nominated SHOWTIME Sports® series that chronicles the dramatic and often unpredictable lives of the world's best prizefighters.  

 

The 27-year-old Jacobs (27-1, 24 KOs), of Brooklyn, N.Y., is coming off a first-round TKO of Milton Nunez on March 15 on the SHOWTIME EXTREME® undercard of the Danny Garcia-Mauricio Herrera event in Puerto Rico. The victory was Jacob's fifth straight win in as many fights since returning to the ring after a courageous 19-month battle against cancer and partial paralysis.

 

The 6'1" Jacobs, who is the 5th ranked middleweight contender by the IBF and sixth by the WBC, WBA and WBO, has won seven in a row by knockout.
