As previously reported, it’s now official that WBA “regular” middleweight champion Daniel “The Miracle Man” Jacobs (31-1, 28 KOs) will defend his title in a rematch against former 154lb: champion Sergio “The Latin Snake” Mora (28-4-2, 9 KOs) on Spike September 9 from Santander Arena, in Reading, Pennsylvania. Tickets for the live event, which is promoted by King’s Promotions, start at $20 and are on sale now via Ticketmaster.
Daniel Jacobs: “This is business for me, but it is also more personal than any fight I have ever had. Sergio has been using these antics online to get this rematch and he has gotten under my skin. There has been a lot of back and forth as far as people’s opinions as to who would have won the fight had he not gotten hurt. I am looking at this as an opportunity to clarify that I am the real champion. I want to shut his trap in primetime.”
Sergio Mora: “I don’t think Jacobs wanted this rematch, but it was destined to happen and now he has to deal with it. I thought the first fight was going my way. I knocked him down in the first round and was outboxing him in the second round. He knows that I have enough power to hurt him. He has more to worry about going into this fight than in the first fight. Look at my resume, I have fought solid opposition. Jacobs doesn’t have that type of resume.”
