    I like the matchup.. the question is, would it be for Eubank Jr's prestigious IBO title at 168
    From what I read today they want a catchweifht fight with Bellew..

    I hope so too.. but he has been saying he might retire in 2018 after a few big fights.. He is a decent boxer but he won't see the final bell against top 3-4 current MWs.. Billy Joe got him in trouble and Billy isn't even a big puncher..

    All that draining himself takes its toll & I think we're starting to see that. That four fight stretch he went on culminating in a defeat to Billy Joe took a lot out of him. He had a nice lay off though, let's hope it's just ring rust.

    Wrong. Everyone has said Jacobs has a 73 inch reach, which is accurate. Approximately 3 inches longer than GGG.

    The only thing "trolls" either exaggerate, or underestimate, is the weight, because Jacobs was so ashamed of how badly he played the system that he wouldn't even step on the unofficial scales before the fight to give fans a fair idea of how much the fighters they were paying to watch fight each weighed for the fight.

    So now as a result of that, we will never know whether he only weighed 8 pounds more than GGG, or 18 pounds more. You can't blame the "trolls" for that! There's only one person to blame for that one and it's Jacobs.
