Arias Vows To End Hearn's U.S. Run: Jacobs is Going To Sleep!

By Miguel Rivera

This Saturday night at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, British promoter Eddie Hearn will stage the first event of new United States brand, Matchroom USA.

The HBO, Sky Sports televised card is headlined by Hearn's first big American signing, former middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs (32-2, 29 KOs).

In the other corner, will be undefeated contender Luis "Cuba" Arias (18-0, 9 KOs), who plans to make a very big statement with a shocking knockout victory.

While there is a ton of hype going into this card, behind the return of Jacobs and the planned American conquest by Hearn - Arias has promised to end of all of that in one swoop - by scoring a big knockout victory.

Arias has no plan to allow this fight to reach a decision. He is focused on checking Jacobs' chin.

"I am very well trained, strong, ready for a war. Jacobs is underestimating me, many people do not know me, he does not know me, they think it will be easy, but, in reality, it is going to be a war. This is a great opportunity. With a knockout and a victory I'm going to position my name in a high position in the division and I'm ready," Arias told ESPN Deportes.

"I want my name to sound out right next to Canelo, Golovkin. I know that a victory will give me the possibility to fight with them. I am going to be very aggressive. Jacobs does not like to fight, he likes to run and doesn't like wars. I am young, I have young legs, good defense, I am very aggressive. The fight will be very difficult for him.

"The plan is not to go twelve rounds. When I hit him hard on the jaw, (Jacobs) will know that he is in for a difficult fight and I will knock him out. I'm not missing anything. The work has been done, we are ready. I only have to make the weight, that's the last thing we do and (we'll be) ready for war."

[QUOTE=IBOX4LIFE;18191633]Seriously, I was just sitting here thinking......Didn't Jacobs just spend 12 rounds getting hit by arguably one of the hardest punchers in boxing? Sooooooo what does this guy think he can bring that GGG didn't? Please help me, if I…

Young undefeated fighters who talk a lot of smack have not had much success lately and i doubt this will be different. See Ericson Lubin, JRock , etc Unless Arias has the chin of an Adrian Granados, he may very…

If Arias can force Jacobs to fight toe to toe slugfest that's good for him Jacobs will stick to his boxer puncher style keep his distance use the jab setup his power shots.
