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.

No argument there, Professor. I still stand behind my statement though. Although fighting in the US alone doesn't mean anything, I still think that staying in Russia is not the way to go if you want to make it..especially when you have (used to have) that title around your waist. Sturm's situation was the same, but at least he got fucked over with that De La Hoya bs decision so he had a reason not to do it. Just my two cents.

Anyways, who do you think Danny should fight ?

sturm is aligned with a big time promoter in germany and they tend to make a decent buck over there fighting mediocre opposition. i wouldn't put pirog in the same category because i think his situation is different. he doesn't have a big time promoter. hbo chose to act like he didn't exist after his fight with jacobs. i guess no one had options on his next fights when he won. they should have...because i think he's a really good fighter.

as for danny...i think they should take their time with him and match him appropriately. there's no rush...test the waters....build him back up. eventually...i'd like to see him get back to a title shot. maybe a rematch with pirog? he's in a deep division.
