Freddie Roach: I Will Start Training Daniel Jacobs

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. Roach confirmed the information to OnTheGrindBoxing.com. Jacobs is building himself back up after getting knocked out by Dmitry Pirog last July. He came back in December to stop Jesse Orta in two rounds.
