Danny Jacobs (26-1 23 KOs) KO’d Giovanni Lorenzo tonight in New York City. He was cut early in the third round and responded like the warrior he is. This was the fourth bout Jacobs has fought in engaging in the most important fight of his lige… the fight against cancer.The former amateur standout faced Dmitry Pirog in 2010 for a vacant middleweight crown, he was badly KO’d and later was diagnosed with cancer, in what proved to be a very rough year for the miracle man
The Brooklyn native has come back strong after the long layoff and is looking poised to make another run at the middleweight crown. A few more wins and he could find himself in a position to face Peter Quillin. It is impossible not to root for a guy as classy as Danny Jacobs.
