Jacobs: I'm Back in December at Barclays - I Want Golovkin Next!

READING, PA. - Middleweight world champion Daniel "The Miracle Man" Jacobs (32-1, 29 KOs) retained his title and knocked down former world champion Sergio "The Latin Snake" Mora (28-5-2, 9 KOs) five times on his way to a seventh-round TKO in the main event of Premier Boxing Champions on Spike Friday night from Santander Arena in Reading, Pa.
 
The bout was a rematch of their championship fight last August that saw Jacobs win by TKO despite being dropped in the first round. Mora suffered an ankle injury on the punch that ended the last fight but he was not able to capitalize on his second chance.
 
Jacobs was in control early and often, attacking the body of Mora and switching between orthodox and southpaw styles to stay in control throughout. Mora was evasive and used good head movement to frustrate Jacobs early but could never get his own offense going.

The champion from Brooklyn stayed the course and in round four he broke through with a left hook to the head that sent Mora crumpling to the mat. Mora recovered but again had a knockdown scored against him in round five.
 
Sensing his moment, Jacobs came out aggressive in the seventh round as he clearly sought an end to the fight. A left right combo dropped Mora in the corner early in the round before he was dropped from a body shot moments after getting back on his feet.
 
Referee Gary Rosato let the fight continue but Jacobs put a quick end to the night by smothering Mora and dropping him for the fifth and final time, forcing the referee to stop the bout at 2:08 into the round.
 
DANIEL JACOBS
 
"I have to take my hat off to Sergio Mora. There was a lot of talking before this fight, but this is boxing. I respect any man who gets inside of this ring.
 
"I want to prove to the world that I'm the best middleweight. If GGG gets the victory tomorrow, that's who we want.
 
"I wanted to go in there to hurt him and keep my knockout streak alive. I did what I said I would.
 
"I didn't expect to knock him down as much, but I did see the fight ending in a knockout. It took a while because he's so tricky. I wasn't able to jab the way I wanted to. That's what happens when you fight guys who have been in the game for a long time.
 
"The support of my city means a lot. There are guys here that I've known since kindergarten. People showed me love across the board and it was tremendous. For them to be on this journey with me, it means everything. I'm living my dream.
 
"This one's for Brooklyn. We have to spread the love around but I'll be back home in December headlining at Barclays Center."

So if this goes to purse bid GGG gets a 75-25 split correct? Meaning someone would have to bid $8 million for Jacobs to pocket just $2 million of that... That will not happen...who is gonna bid that much? If…

[QUOTE=TheCell8;17021429]Well There's two options. Either they way overpay Golovkin to fight on Showtime so that Jacobs could get his $3M (Which would mean that Haymon would have to put up over $10M for the purse bid). Or Jacobs accepts whatever…

[QUOTE=Boxing Logic;17021390]GGG has a date for November. Danny Jacobs is not the "A-side" or does that only matter to all the Flom0s and Canelo fans when it's their guy who is? This smells of more Al Haymon bullsh1t where instead…
