Daniel Jacobs left London on Sunday with a fourth defeat on his professional record.

Keith Connolly, Jacobs’ manager, just hopes promoters treat the former IBF middleweight champion as the figurative winner of the 12-round super middleweight fight he lost to John Ryder. London’s Ryder won a split decision, but Gabe Rosado, Jacobs’ rival, countless fans on social media and Connolly expressed that Jacobs “was robbed” by two of the judges.

English judge Marcus McDonnell was the lone judge who scored Jacobs the winner, 115-113. The two other judges, the United States’ Mike Fitzgerald and Monaco’s Jean-Robert Laine, scored their fight 115-113 for Ryder.

From his own ringside seat, Connolly scored Jacobs a 116-112 winner, though there was a round he thought Ryder might’ve stolen early in their fight with a late flurry.

“Danny got robbed,” Connolly told BoxingScene.com. “I don’t think there’s any planet anyone could be on where you could give John Ryder seven rounds. So, we definitely think we got robbed. And we think Danny can go straight into another big fight. He doesn’t need a comeback fight. He can go straight to a big fight because he doesn’t feel like it was a real loss. And we don’t think that bad judging should be rewarded.

“The way to reward bad judging is to penalize Danny, where he has to prove himself again. He’s a big enough name, he’s been around long enough and he definitely won that fight. The public knows he won the fight. People on Twitter and all social media said he got robbed. So, you know, I think Danny deserves another big fight at this point.”

Jacobs, 35, isn’t tied to a network or streaming service, or a promoter.

The Brooklyn native has fought on Showtime for Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions. Fights with Jermall Charlo, if he doesn’t secure a lucrative showdown with Canelo Alvarez, and Caleb Plant should interest Jacobs if he realigns himself with PBC following four straight fights that were streamed by DAZN.

If he were to continue fighting on DAZN for Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing, which at least co-promoted his past seven bouts, a rematch with Ryder, a fight with middleweight contender Jaime Munguia and a rematch with Gennadiy Golovkin – again, if he doesn’t secure a rematch with Alvarez – all could interest Jacobs.

A vegan diet he followed before the Ryder fight has left Jacobs confident that he can comfortably make the middleweight limit of 160 pounds again, which would enable him to fight Munguia or Golovkin. Jacobs has weighed in at 166½ pounds or more for each of his last three fights, all of which were contracted at the super middleweight maximum of 168 pounds.

While awaiting his next opportunity, Jacobs (37-4, 30 KOs) and his team are left to lament the official result of what was a very competitive fight with Ryder (31-5, 17 KOs), a southpaw who rallied during the second half of a main event DAZN streamed from Alexandra Palace.

“[Laine] gave the 12th round to Ryder,” Connolly said. “That is preposterous. Danny won the 12th round easy. How do you give the 12th round to Ryder? Anybody that watches that 12th round knows that Danny Jacobs won it clearly.”
