Since I have created the topic about Danny Garcia, I think it's only fair to create one about Daniel Jacobs who came back after his long battle with cancer, which in itself is a lifetime accomplishment.

I was listening to some of his after-fight interviews and man, what a cool dude. I know his opponent wasn't top-notch, but at least he chose someone with a winning record for his comeback. I noticed he got hit couple of times in that fight, but otherwise I really liked his D which seems to be a mixture of various styles - shoulder roll etc. No question about the speed and power. He got care-less against Pirog, who is a freak anyway, protected, but still a freak.

What do you think is next for him ? Possible match-ups ? I don't want to see him rush things, but man...what a champ he would make.

i liked the little bit i saw from jacobs. he seems to be throwing great punches. i know his opponent was limited...but i'm looking at danny's movement...and he's back! great story...and u can see he realizes that he has a second lease on life. u can see it in his expressions and passion and hear it in his voice. life is truly a gift and i believe he intends to make the most of it.

pirog is protected? he fought jacobs! that was a roll of the dice.

And hasn't fought in the US ever since. Jacobs fight is in my opinion an exception to the rule. I wish Pirog would fought someone worthy, its a waste of talent seeing him fighting guys like Maciel. At least he doesnt have that title anymore, but the clock is ticking. I was really impressed with the way he fought.

Anyways, I like what Danny did in the fight too. I guess he could have waited with the KO and get some rounds under his belt but I am certainly not complaining about seeing punches like those he threw. Mean. I liked his movement too and that D, although he didn't give me a chance to see it later on in the fight, seemed great. Always nice to see a young guy with such nice skill set.

pirog was scheduled to fight golovkin on hbo in the u.s. that's not the kind of match up u make if you're trying to protect a fighter. he had an injury so he had to pull out...but i'm thinking that fight is going to happen eventually.
