Jacobs' Trainer: Jermall Charlo Needs a Good Wake-Up Call!

By Steve Kim

Trainer Andre Rozier is one of the most honest and forthright individuals in the sport of boxing.

And when you ask him about Danny Jacobs (34-2, 29 KOs) recent victory over Maciej Sulecki, he had mixed reviews.

"Danny was trying a little bit too hard to impress the crowd at the Barclay Center and him doing that he was a little on the reckless side. He could've been a lot sharper but he wanted to put on a knockout show for the people there ad he was trying a bit too hard instead of just flowing and having a good time boxing," Rozier told BoxingScene.com.

Sulecki came in as a sizable underdog but he fought gamely and had his moments.

"He was caught with a few shots that I didn't particularly like but he was telling me, 'No, I'm OK. The guy doesn't have good shots, I'm just going to keep working until I get close enough to do what I want to do.' And in doing that if he would've been just a little more relaxed, what happened in the 12th round would've happened a lot sooner," opined Rozier, speaking of Jacobs scoring a knockdown in the final round versus the brave Polish fighter, to punctuate his unanimous decision victory.

"But you need fights like that, he was a tough guy. Sulecki's not the type of guy that (Jermall) Charlo's been fighting. Out of all the middleweights who did fight, I think Sulecki was the toughest guy out of all of them. He was a lot tougher than Charlo's opponent (Hugo Centeno) and he was definitely - not to take anything from Vanes (Martirosyan) - but Vanes was nowhere ready to perform at the level he was asked perform on Saturday," said Rozier, referring to Genandy Golovkin's second round stoppage of Martirosyan, who was coming off a two year layoff.

There has been some barking between Jacobs and Charlo. Of that possible match-up, Rozier states - "Danny wants it and whatever Danny wants in terms of an opponent, my job as his trainer and his mentor is to prepare him for it. And actually myself, I'm a bit excited about it because they need a good wake-up call and I think Danny is just the person to provide it for them."

[QUOTE=Hnnnggg;18840462]I understand your sentiment brother, ggg hasn’t had the most impressive resume. But to be honest until recently he hasn’t maneuvered around any challenge, his 5 year run just happened to be fill with lesser opposition. Can’t really blame him…

[QUOTE=Fire4231;18839917]Sorry bro, you can’t look at the soft touches everyone has and access GGG deficits. Where GGG doesn’t past the litmus test is in top competition. Analyze the top talent Robinson did fight verses who GGG fought that was a…

[QUOTE=Hnnnggg;18833289]To be fair, take arguably the 1 p4p boxer of all time in sugar ray Robinson, check out his resume. The fulmer’s, turpine’s, lamotta’s, and Galivan’s are spaced out. That’s not to take away anything from SRR since he’s probably…

[QUOTE=Fire4231;18758967]Gillie - I appreciate the respectful note, just don’t agree with your logic. GGG fought Jacobs and a high percentage of fans saw Jacobs win that fight. Why was there not a rematch? Did they not believe that fight would…
