Daniel Jacobs Expects The Normal Mora - Defense First

By Victor Salazar

Brooklyn, New York - Danny Jacobs (29-1, 26 KO’s) is looking to make a statement when he enters the ring against Sergio Mora on Saturday night at Barclays Center. Mora has an awkward style that may not appeal to the masses. Jacobs knows this but says his game plan will focus around applying pressure against the ‘Latin Snake’

“There’s really no way to prepare for Sergio because he’s not the average type of pro fighter that you’re used to seeing,” Jacobs told “He’s defense first and on top of that he’s awkward. We have to do the best of our abilities to pressure and land as much as we can.”

Mora has never been stopped as a pro so certainly that would be an accomplishment. Jacobs says however it’s not something that is on his mind.

“It’s not going to be on my mind but if the opportunity presents itself, I’m going to take advantage of it,” Jacobs said. “The most important part of Saturday is to get the win. You can look good and lose and look bad and win at times.”

Mora told BoxingScene that he was going to be more aggressive in this fight which was news to Jacobs.

“He said that?” a surprised Jacobs stated. “Sergio Mora’s never been a guy to go forward but like I said anytime a guy is fighting for a world championship, he’s going to put his foot forward. I don’t expect him to come forward but if he does it’ll be even better even if I don’t think that suits him well.”

He'll be the same old... he won't be aggressive. He got aggressive against that UFC fighter and got knocked down

Sergio by UD! Danny hasn't been in yet with a crafty confusing style and if Sergio throws the left undercut straight right hand lead we will see Danny J. Rocked.
