Televised coverage begins at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. as middleweight world champion Daniel "The Miracle Man" Jacobs (29-1, 26 KOs) defends in his hometown against former world champion Sergio "The Latin Snake" Mora (28-3-2, 9 KOs).

DANIEL JACOBS

"This is another great opportunity to showcase my skills. I'm on a good knockout streak and I feel confident about this fight.

"Sergio Mora is a Rubik's cube, you have to figure him out. He's crafty and I have the utmost respect for him. I'm 100 percent confident in my ability to go out there and put on a good show

"I hear Sergio is coming here to knock me out and if that's the case this is going to be a real exciting fight. I look forward to it because I'm coming forward and if two guys are doing that it's going to be a great fight.

"I'm excited to give these Brooklyn fans a great fight. I love being at home and seeing all of the familiar faces I've seen since the amateur days."

Danny reminds me of a prime Kelly Pavlik so much.
