NEW YORK, BROOKLYN, BARCLAYS CENTER -- While the crowd of 7,237 fans was disappointed with the result of the main event, Danny Jacobs' performance in the semi-main event had the crowd roaring.
Jacobs improved to 30-1 when he stopped Sergio Mora at 2:55 of the second round. Jacobs landed a right hook to the side of Mora's head, who crumpled to the canvas and was taken from the ring by stretcher because of right ankle and knee injuries. Mora was taken to a hospital for a MRI.
''I know it's broken. I heard it pop,'' said Mora, who fell to 28-4-2. ''I heard my knee pop and I want to see a replay because I know my ankle is broken.''
Immediately following the fight, Jacobs unequivocally expressed his disinterest in a rematch.
''No reason to go backwards,'' said Jacobs, who was knocked down by a left to the face in the first round. ''Did a guy with nine knockouts really knock me down?''
