Last Saturday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, middleweight contender Daniel Jacobs (34-2, 29 KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Maciej Sulecki (26-1, 10 KOs).
The contest was sanctioned as a WBA world title eliminator.
Jacobs is now in line to get a crack at the WBA world title, which is currently handled by unified champion Gennady Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs).
Golovkin is back in the ring on Saturday night, when he defends his belts against Vanes Martirosyan at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.
More than likely, Golovkin - should he win - move forward with a potential rematch against Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez on September 15th.
But, Jacobs is still very eager to get his hands on the man known as GGG.
Jacobs and Golovkin collided in the ring last March at New York's Madison Square Garden, with the champion winning a close twelve round decision.
Jacobs believes he did more than enough to win that fight.
And he's very confident of beating Golovkin in a rematch.
“I think that level of confidence comes from my loss against Golovkin,” Jacobs said to Premier Boxing Champions.
“In my mind, I knew I beat Golovkin, and that put me as part of that elite level. It’s a level of confidence and mental strength that comes with fighting someone like Golovkin that you get and maintain a superior level.
“Golovkin is someone who had power and he had skill. I was able to deter him from all of those things that he does well. I was able, in my opinion, to overpower what he did. I was predicted to be knocked out within six, and I went the whole 12. It was something I needed, because you don’t know where you are unless you go in there and actually perform. That’s what I did. I performed. I was able to show that I could bang with the best of them.”
