DANIEL JACOBS

"This is a great camp and we are ready to put on a great show come August 1st.  I feel comfortable as a champion. Don't get me wrong, when I first won my title it was totally surreal, but I always felt like a champion deep down inside. There is something that burns inside of me that has allowed me to overcome every obstacle in my life, and to me, that's what makes a champion.

"I love being a part of PBC. There is no doubt in my mind that my popularity has grown since my first appearance on a PBC card. We are reaching a much younger and different crowd and demographic than before, and it is just great for the sport of boxing.

"This is a tough fight. Mora is a proven guy and I know he is very hungry for this opportunity. He is awkward and he is slick. He has good speed and a good jab. We have to be cautious and stick to our game plan. People are saying that this could be the toughest fight of my career and we are training with that mindset.

"With a win in this fight, I truly believe that the sky is the limit. There are a lot of big fights out there to be made in the division, but obviously, the main guy for me would be Peter Quillin. It is a fight that I have wanted for a long time, and it is a huge fight for boxing, but especially for New York.

"My legacy is in my own hands. Some of the biggest fights in the sport are in the middleweight division right now. At this particular point though, the Quillin fight is the most lucrative option for me. I am not looking past any man, especially not Sergio Mora, but that is a fight I want, the boxing world wants, New York wants and Barclays Center wants."

LOU DIBELLA

"The co-feature match-up is a very intriguing fight. You have two of the best middleweights in the world in Danny Jacobs and Sergio Mora. Just like the main event, this is a very tough fight. Sergio is extremely hungry. He has been waiting for this shot for years. Danny's story is just remarkable. How hard he has worked to get here, and win a world championship is just extraordinary. He is a champion both inside and outside of the ring, and it's truly an honor to be working with him. That is the great thing about promoting these PBC events. I have the opportunity to work with and promote some of the greatest and most talented fighters in the sport, in exciting and competitive fights."

[QUOTE=BostonGuy;15858053]**Pretends that Golovkin doesn't fight in the same division**[/QUOTE] If Golovkin won't fight Lara because he's with Haymon then why would Danny Jacobs fight GGG? :thinking:

Comment by DoktorSleepless on 07-09-2015

I can't wait for Haymon to force the WBA purse bid so he can outbid K2, and force Golovkin to vacate the belt.

Comment by Mukuro on 07-09-2015

It is good for him that he knows his limitations. I wouldn't mind seeing him get knocked out again though.
