Daniel Jacobs Targets The Lee vs. Saunders Winner

NEW YORK – Middleweight World Champion Daniel Jacobs will join the SHOWTIME® announce team as an in-studio guest this Saturday for the Andy Lee-Billy Joe Saunders WBO middleweight world title showdown that airs live on SHO EXTREME (5 p.m. ET/PT), from Manchester, England.

Jacobs will be in New York to share his thoughts, insight and perspective with boxing experts Brian Custer, Al Bernstein and Paulie Malignaggi before and after the UK-based BoxNation coverage of the championship fight.

Jacobs, of course, has more than a passing interest in the outcome of the 50-50 matchup. The WBA Middleweight World Champion who defeated previously unbeaten and former world champion Peter Quillin in one round earlier this month on SHOWTIME, Jacobs could be looking at a unification fight against the winner.

Earlier this week, Jacobs gave his thoughts on the Lee-Saunders matchup: 

“I’m excited for the winner of Lee vs. Saunders,” Jacobs said.  “I’m rooting for Andy Lee because I think that’s a bigger fight for me.  Doing something in the U.S. between the two of us would make a lot of sense.  He has a huge following here in New York, just like me obviously.  It would be a classic showdown that Brooklyn would appreciate.

“May the best man win between the two of them, but if Andy wins I think it would be very interesting for both of us.”

The SHOWTIME BOXING INTERNATIONAL Lee vs. Saunders fight will re-air on SHOWTIME EXTREME on Saturday at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

[QUOTE=hogwash;16332203]i don't see Lee going down to 155[/QUOTE] Why wouldn't Lee go down to 155 if he had to? He gets a chance at another belt AND a huge payraise. It's like a dream to Lee. Canelo/Lee is like Golovkin/Floyd.…

Andy Lee for months has predominately said that he wants to fight GGG in a unification match. Yet his promoter DiBella keeps stating that he wants Lee to fight Jacobs. This will be interesting to see how this plays out.…

It' already going to go Jacobs route. Both guys are talking it up, if Lee wins you already know which direction he's going to be pushed towards

[COLOR="Blue"][FONT="Arial"][B]Would be great seeing Lee (almost certainly the winner this weekend) vs Jacobs IN Ireland or England. If Lee can keep his defense sound for a few rounds, he could drop and/or stop Jacobs. Satellite Dish Ears doesn't have the…
