Daniel Jacobs: I Want Jermall Charlo, Golovkin Again, Saunders

In front of 10,697 on Friday night at the Talking Stick Resort Arena, Daniel ‘Miracle Man’ Jacobs (36-3, 30 KOs) earned a stoppage victory over Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. (51-4-1, 33 KOs).

The referee called an end to the contest after Chavez Jr. complained of problems breathing after the fifth round.

Chavez, Jr. failed to meet the 168-pound weight limit at Thursday’s weigh-in resulting in tonight’s matchup being contested at 173 pounds.

Jacobs is now looking ahead to much bigger fights in 2020.

“To me it wasn’t my debut at super middleweight. This is so disrespectful, this was at cruiserweight. His jab was so heavy, physically he was a bigger man. I tried my best to be elusive and box, he was a heavy man. I tried to counter his punches. They’re stealing my victory, man," Jacobs said.
“It took me two or three rounds honestly. I don’t know what he had left. I don’t know if he had something up his sleeves, but I just wanted to be acclimated. I made sure I could take punches, see if he wanted to brawl. But for now I’m comfortable with the victory, and now I can’t enjoy the victory, but I did my part.
“This wasn’t necessarily at super middleweight. He fought a cruiserweight. I want to move forward and prove I’m the best. It’s a matter of getting acclimated and moving forward in the right direction.
“I want to fight the biggest in the division. I want Jermall Charlo and GGG again. There’s Billy Joe Saunders and a lot of other champions.”

Also on the card, the co-main event saw Julio Cesar Martinez (15-1, 12KOs) claim the WBC World Flyweight Title after a stoppage victory in an explosive battle against Cristofer Rosales (29-5, 20KOs) that saw an ample amount of punches thrown in a 12-round bout. 

Maurice Hooker (27-1-3, 18KOs) had an impressive debut at welterweight with a first-round TKO ofUriel Perez (19-5, 17KOs) in a scheduled ten-round fight. Hooker rebounded following a knockout defeat to Jose Ramirez for the super lightweight title – a belt Hooker is adamant about bringing back to his hometown of Dallas.

Earlier in the evening, Reshat Mati (6-0, 4 KOs) again showed his power with a stoppage over Rakim Johnson (6-9-1, 5 KOs) who hit the canvas four times, Liam Smith (29-2-1, 16 KOs) earned a victory with a polished performance over Roberto Garcia (42-5, 25 KOs) in a ten-round bout, and Josh Kelly (10-0-1, 6 KOs) remained undefeated after going the distance in a tough battle with Winston Campos (31-7-6, 19 KOs).

[QUOTE=DClefthook;20271630]Danny signed a 3 fight deal with marchroom and I believe that was the third one. So he should be a free agent now. He should only sign one fight deals and go back and forth between PBC and DAZN.…
