You know, it's actually funny that he posted that on his Facebook account as opposed to his PR site.
Actually, last night, at around 11PM ET, the fight still wasn't a done deal yet. Some people from his team called me to ask what I thought about the matchup. At the time, I was told, "it's not a done deal, but we're hoping." Still though, like I told them last night, I think it's a fight that he should DEFINITELY take because 1) it's going to be televised on HBO (supposedly they're making that card a tripleheader) and 2) quite frankly, if he can't be a young up-and-comer, then he'll never have any chance to make it.
I also told them, unfortunately, I don't think he's going to win. For one, Ishe is a jr. middleweight whereas Jacobs is a middleweight...I don't think the extra weight is going to help Ishe's case as I really think he'll need a knockout or at least a couple of knockdowns in order to beat an Al Haymon fighter fighting on a Golden Boy card.
Will it be competitive? Maybe, but I suspect Ishe will find a way to lose.
