Daniel Jacobs Becomes The Face of Brooklyn Boxing

BROOKLYN –World middleweight champion and Brooklyn native Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs (31-1-0) has been named the face of BROOKLYN BOXING, the flourishing boxing platform for Barclays Center.

In the multi-year agreement, Jacobs will wear BROOKLYN BOXING branded merchandise, appear in promotional materials and make public appearances on behalf of the brand.

Jacobs will train and compete in branded gloves, trunks, shoes and robes and will wear other apparel during fight week events and post-fight press conferences. As Jacobs and his corner men take their famed walk from his branded locker room to the ring, they’ll wear a full array of BROOKLYN BOXING gear. Fans can purchase their own apparel at BrooklynBoxingShop.com and during BROOKLYN BOXING events at Barclays Center.

“I’m proud to represent BROOKLYN BOXING, not just in the ring, but also in the community where I got my start in the sport,” said Jacobs. “BROOKLYN BOXING is a great platform for me to share my story about determination and never giving up. Brooklyn is my home and I’m proud to have achieved so many of my career milestones at Barclays Center.”

In 2011, Jacobs was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a life-threatening form of bone cancer. After an arduous battle, radiation treatments and surgery, Jacobs returned to the ring at Barclays Center where he went on to win his WBA world middleweight title in August 2014, a belt he still holds. He last defended his title at Barclays Center in December 2015, when he took down then-undefeated Peter Quillin in a shocking first-round knockout.

“Daniel is a true inspiration to Brooklyn, the boxing community and beyond,” said Brett Yormark, CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment. “His story captures what BROOKLYN BOXING is all about – courage, toughness, and perseverance. We are proud to have Daniel represent the BROOKLYN BOXING brand globally. Wherever he goes, BROOKLYN BOXING will go.”

In support of the alliance, BROOKLYN BOXING will make an annual donation to Jacobs’ Get In The Ring Foundation, through which he advocates for children struggling with cancer, childhood obesity, and bullying.

The new BROOKLYN BOXING merchandise line features a unique brand of active wear, lifestyle apparel, accessories for men and women, fighters and fans alike.

The assortment includes in-ring essentials like BROOKLYN BOXING training gear, gloves and corner buckets, as well as street wear such as hats, hoodies, shirts, socks and skateboards.

Since when does a guy who gets his ass beat by one Eastern-European named Pirog and runs from another one named GGG - become the face of Brooklyn?

Jacob will be the broken and busted up face of boxing if he ever grows a set and fights GGG. But he won't until he's forced to. I'd actually give Eubanks a great shot to stop Jacobs.

Golovkin the face of Apple, Jordan, Samsung, Tecate, and Jacobs is the face of Brooklyn Boxing. These are some levels there.
