Middleweight contender Daniel Jacobs of Brooklyn will return to the ring against an opponent to be determined on the March 5, HBO televised card featuring 20-year-old WBC silver belt titlist Saul Alvarez against Matthew Hatton, Golden Boy Promotions matchmaker Eric Gomez confirms.
The 23-year-old Jacobs returned last month with a fifth-round knockout of Jesse Orta at the Pepsi Colesium in Quebec City, Canada., which improved his record to 21-1, with his 18th knockout. Jacobs is rebounding from last July's fifth-round knockout loss to Dmitry Pirog (17-0, 14 KOs) of Russia.
