In an intriguing middleweight showdown, Brooklyn-born headliner Daniel Jacobs (33-2, 29 KOs) makes his 2018 ring debut against Warsaw native Maciej Sulecki (26-0, 10 KOs), who now resides in Florida, in a scheduled 12-round fight. Jacobs, 31, has held training camp again on Long Island, and has his sights on a 160-pound title shot this year. Sulecki, 28, looks to keep his perfect record intact and pull off a big upset.
The opening bout is a scheduled 12-round heavyweight tilt between Brooklyn’s Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller (20-0-1, 18 KOs) and France’s Johann Duhaupas (37-4, 24 KOs). Miller, 29, aims to put on an impressive performance in his second HBO appearance and earn a title shot. With three dominant wins in 2017, the 37-year-old Duhaupas seeks to spoil Miller’s plans and leap ahead in the rankings.
