Jacobs vs. Mora II, Easter vs. Commey, Kauffman on Sept. 9

by Carlos Boogs has been advised that Premier Boxing Champions has finalized a Spike TV televised card for September 9th at the Santander Arena in Reading Pennsylvania. The venue seats around 7,100 fans.

In the main event, a rematch between WBA 'regular' middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs (31-1, 28KOs) and former 154-pound belholder Sergio Mora.

They fought each other last August in a fire-fight that last two rounds at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

They traded knockdowns in the first round, with Mora (28-4-2, 9KOs) going down again in the second and suffering a severe ankle injury in the process. Mora was unable to continue and Jacobs was deemed the victor by TKO.

Jacobs fought again last December when he stopped Peter Quillin in one short round, also at Barclays.

In the co-feature, a hot lightweight world title fight between two undefeated contenders, when Robert Easter (17-0, 14KOs) faces Richard Commey (24-0, 22KOs) for the vacant IBF crown, which was vacated by Rances Barthelemy who moved up in weight. The fight will be the toughest test for both boxers and 50-50 on paper in terms of the winner.

Also on the card, local fan favorite Travis Kauffman (30-1, 22KOs) returns for the first time since last December's no-decision with Chris Arreola.

Many felt Kauffman had done enough to squeeze out a win, but Arreola got a twelve round majority decision win. The outcome was changed to a no-decision after Arreola failed a post-fight drug test.

I wonder how many of the GGGvsJacobs groupies are gonna watch this fight. Or is it gonna be a 200k view fight again? Jacobs should have looked to fight Lee tbh.

I'm excited for this card. Not sure why people are so down on a rematch that had both guys go down in the 1st rd of the fight. Commey/Easter should give us a good idea at the level those 2…

Commey has beaten all bums. What makes you guys think it will be a good fight? Typically those African guys with a ton of KO's of bums, don't make it once they step up.

Normally boxing weigh-ins in Pennsylvania recquire same day weigh-ins, but now I read the director- Greg Sirb, has the authority to allow certain fights to have an earlier weigh-in. [QUOTE](2) [B]A boxer shall weigh-in no more than 24 hours prior…

Jacobs-Mora II should be good. Wasn't there like three knockdowns in the first 2 rounds before Mora broke his ankle? Isn't that what the people want to see, knockdowns?
