Former NABF middleweight champion Danny "The Golden Child" Jacobs (21-1, 18 KOs) will be back in action on the Alvarez-Hatton undercard on Mar. 5 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. I recently talked to Jacobs and he told me that he still doesn't know who he will be facing for his Mar. 5 battle. Although his opponent remains unknown at this moment, it seems like the Golden Child is motivated and is ready to climb that tough mountain once again. Jacobs is a hot prospect with a strong amateur background (137-7) who's coming off a tremendous fifth-round TKO victory over Jesse Orta.
Danny Jacobs is a strong warrior that has a lot of room for improvement; and he found the perfect general to lead him to the home of all champions. That general is Hall of Fame boxing trainer Freddie Roach; a man who has the vision of an eagle in the sport of boxing. Although Freddie Roach will be in Danny Jacobs' corner on the day of the fight, Alex Ariza will not be Jacobs' conditioning trainer.
Some may still question the Golden Child's confidence, since he failed to conquer Russia's current WBO middleweight champion, Dmitry Pirog (17-0, 14 KOs) and lost the battle by an explosive fifth-round KO. Although Jacobs experienced his first defeat last July, with a general like Freddie Roach he may be able to conquer his future opponents and later gain power in the middleweight division.
Once he completely gains his confidence back, we may witness Jacobs-Pirog II, since Danny Jacobs wanted a rematch. What do you boxing fans think? Would he be able to successfully conquer Pirog with Freddie Roach in his corner or would it be the same results?
We may not be able to answer these few questions that we have in mind at this moment; only time will tell if this young warrior, 23, will succeed in the future. Danny Jacobs will soon start a new chapter in the sport of boxing; a mysterious chapter that soon will be written in the history books.
