Photos: Danny Jacobs Downs Fletcher To Reach Title Goal

Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York - In a fight for the vacant WBA 'regular' middleweight title, Daniel Jacobs (28-1, 25KOs) stopped Jarrod Fletcher (18-2, 10KOs) in the fifth round. An exchange of punches in the first round saw Fletcher get decked in the second minute. Feltcher made it up and took a beating until the close of the round. Fletcher, although still losing, was able to regroup in the second round. Feltcher was rocked again in the fourth, but fought his way out of trouble. During the fifth, Fletcher was doing well but then he was hurt bad and battered against the ropes until the referee jumped in as Fletcher went down again. Photos by Ed Mulholand.
