Danny Jacobs Will Have Freddie Roach in His Corner on Mar. 5

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

I was at the Pirog fight and can safely say has well and truly beat by a better fighter. Exposed im afraid. Lets hope the loss does him some good in the long term

 

Problem is that Pirog came up the right way and Jacobs didn't. Pirog's list of fights (I've posted them somewhere) had 6 or 7 good tests on it, Jacobs' had 1 name of worth (Ishe Smith). Smith should never be enough to get someone ready for a title fight.

Jacobs is a typical American hype job. Without blowing my own trumpet, I knew Pirog would expose him and thats exactly what happened. I remember when he fought Ishe Smith, he had the smaller man chasing him around the ring. I knew a big strong unorthodox and very aggressive middleweight like Pirog would have his number and it proved to be the case.

 

Jacobs is good but he was being built up a something special and he's a long way from that. Having Freddie Roach in his cormer is certainly not gonna do him any harm but this kid is never gonna be the world beater people said he would be.
