Daniel Jacobs announced on HBO during the Linares-Campbell telecast this previous weekend that he had signed a multi fight deal with HBO and promoter Eddie Hearn.
For Jacobs this is great news as the top middleweights in the division are aligned with HBO in Canelo and Triple G. Jacobs actually fought GGG last March in a 12 round unanimous decision loss. It’s now that much easier for him to try and arrange a potential rematch with GGG or a fight with Canelo. Jacobs (32-2 29 KOs) will return on November 11th against Luis Arias (18-0 9 KOs).
For Eddie Hearn, this is his first American fighter that he’s signed as he makes his expansion into “the colonies”. Hearn was also on hand Saturday as his fighter Luke Campbell was fighting Jorge Linares.
