AMERICAN DANIEL Jacobs penned a multi-fight deal as part of Matchroom Boxing’s new venture in the US last week.

The middleweight will make his debut under the new banner in November live on HBO as ‘The Miracle Man’ aims to reclaim his world champion status.

“I’m truly excited to be joining Matchroom Boxing and HBO,” said Jacobs.

“This is a new beginning for my career and I get a chance to showcase my skills to the world. I can’t wait to return to the ring in November, being active and recapturing the world middleweight title."

“It’s an honour to welcome Daniel Jacobs to the Matchroom Boxing team and to join forces with HBO boxing to showcase his fights,” said promoter Eddie Hearn.

“I believe Daniel has proved himself as the top middleweight in world boxing and has one of the most inspirational stories you will ever see in the sport which must be told. We plan on keeping Danny nice and busy kicking off in November, then back in the spring with the obvious target of the Canelo vs. GGG winner.

“This signing marks the first of many in the US market as we look forward to building on our success in the UK, raising fighters’ activities levels and profiles and providing fans with atmosphere and drama from this great sport.”

“Inspiring and electric in the ring, Daniel Jacobs is a true ambassador for boxing,” said Peter Nelson, executive vice president, HBO Sports.

“Daniel is a force to be reckoned with in the stacked middleweight division. We look forward to watching to his exceptionally bright future unfold as part of the HBO family.”
