Danny Jacobs, Danny Garcia Win Bouts

By Mark Vester

Middleweight Danny Jacobs (1-0, 1KO) made his pro debut on the undercard to Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Ricky Hatton at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. He stopped Jose Hurtado (1-5-1, 1KOs) in less than 30-seconds to rack up his first pro win. Jacobs, one of the best amateurs to come out of New York, is close to signing a deal with a major promoter and has manager to the stars, Al Haymon by his side. Some of Jacob's amateur bouts can be found in the BoxingScene video section.

In other action, junior welterweight prospect Danny Garcia (2-0, 2KOs) stopped Jesus Villareal (1-3-1, 0KOs) in the second round. Garcia, another bright amateur, made his pro debut on the undercard to Joan Guzman-Humberto Soto in Atlantic City. Garcia was interviewed by BoxingScene.com after his pro debut, which is located in the video section of this site.
