Jacobs: We’d Practiced Putting Away Hurt Opponents

by David P. Greisman

Daniel Jacobs went from having a dangerous opponent to having a hurt foe in front of him. And so he went into action to keep Peter Quillin from being able to be dangerous again — attacking Quillin and scoring a marvelous first-round technical knockout.

Although he wasn’t expecting to hurt Quillin so early, it was no accident that Jacobs was able to end the fight once Quillin was wobbled so badly.

“We have techniques in the gym we work on, it’s called ‘Rumble,’ so when we have guys hurt we know exactly what punches to put together, how to bombard a guy, how to corral a guy and eventually get a stoppage,” Jacobs said in a post-fight interview.

“I didn’t think about punching myself out. I knew from his eyes that he was really hurt,” he said. “If it had been different I probably would’ve paced myself a little bit more. As we seen with the Sergio Mora fight, I went in carelessly and I got clipped. So knowing that we were in there with a power puncher, we was already cautious of his best asset. I knew if I had an opportunity to get him hurt, that we was going to do it differently this time. I don’t know if it was a lot different, but he was really hurt.”

Jacobs fought Mora this past August. After hurting and dropping Mora in the first round, Jacobs rushed at Mora and got sent to the canvas himself. Jacobs ultimately won in the second round when Mora got knocked down again and injured his leg on the way down.

He didn’t come out unscathed against Quillin — there was a knot on his forehead. Given that CompuBox only had Quillin landing one jab and one power punch in the 85 seconds of action, the wound may not have come from Quillin’s hands.

“I might’ve gotten a head butt or hit somewhere in the middle of the exchange, so in the back of my mind I thought I might have to pace myself if he’s able to regroup and get himself together — but he wasn’t,” Jacobs said. “I just remember seeing his eyes and seeing his legs and just not [stopping] punching.”

I myself thought it was wild and inaccurate shots live but in the replay after the Ko it seemed that almost every shot Jacob threw landed in that final sequence. Sure some of them were grazing shots but a lot…

He did well landing that big right...stayed having that killer instinct. the fight ender was that right hook to the temple. Put Quillen in a world of trouble, that. Can't imagine Jacobs being able to pull some blitzkrieg on GGG…

That was quite evident. Excellent job by Jacobs last night. Very happy for him.

As long as he put Quillin away, it's all good.
