By Chris LaBate

Freddie Roach is going to start training middleweight contender Daniel Jacobs (21-1, 18KOs) for his next bout, which is scheduled to take place on the Saul Alvarez-Matthew Hatton undercard on March 5 in Anaheim, California.

He came back in December to stop Jesse Orta in two rounds.
