Video: Daniel Jacobs Talks Luis Arias Bout, HBO Move, More

By Victor Salazar

Daniel Jacobs will face Luis Arias on his Matchroom Boxing debut at NYCB LIVE, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York on Saturday, November 11. The middleweight clash will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Former WBA Middleweight king Jacobs (32-2, 29 KOs), is back in action following his brilliant performance in New York against Gennady Golovkin last March. The Brooklyn born ‘Miracle Man’ is targeting world title action in 2018 and will be looking for an explosive performance against the unbeaten American Arias to signal his intent to be recognized as the man in the deeply talented 160 pound division.

Wisconsin-based Arias (18-0, 9 KOs), will look to spoil Jacobs’ plans at the first hurdle. The 27 year old decorated amateur and USBA champion is thrilled to have landed the huge fight he’s been craving and to announce himself on the world scene.

Also part of the HBO telecast serving as the chief-support on the first Matchroom Boxing USA fight night card sees exciting heavyweight Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller taking on Mariusz Wach. Miller looks to stake his claim for a world title shot in 2018 with an impressive performance while Wach looks to spoil his plans.

Unbeaten Miller (19-0, 17 KOs), recorded his 17th win inside the distance this past July when he forced the retirement of Gerald Washington at Barclays Center. The Brooklyn native will look to lay down a marker as he meets Poland’s former world title challenger Wach (33-2, 17 KOs), who has his mind set on upsetting Miller’s game plan.

Tickets for the live event will go on sale on Thursday, October 5 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at ticketmaster.com, NYCBLIVE.com or by calling 800-745-3000. Tickets can also be purchased at the Ticketmaster Box Office at the Coliseum, starting Friday, October 6 at noon.
