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.

yeah, i didn't like the circumstances surrounding the fight with jacobs and pirog and at the time...i thought it was a factor. i didn't know about his injuries being fishy with pirog. that happens in boxing. if it's a pattern...then it's definitely worth questioning. i'd like to see him aligned with an american promoter to get him on tv here. i recall reading an interview where he stated he wanted to fight here more often because this is where the best are...blah,blah,blah... hbo should have brought him back after that win over jacobs. as for his opposition...trying to get real opponents to fight in russia isn't easy. not many will go overseas to take a fight against a guy like pirog.

Well pirogs boat might have sailed since he hasn't really done much and he has no belt anymore.
