Daniel Jacobs returns to HBO to face Luis Arias in tonight’s main event
Tonight at 10 pm ET on HBO, middleweight contender Daniel Jacobs returns to the network to face Luis Arias in the main event of a tripleheader from the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.
Jacobs (32-2, 29 KO) is coming off of a very close loss to Gennady Golovkin in March, and is the heavy favorite tonight. With a win, he stays right in the mix to rematch Golovkin or face Canelo Alvarez, the two biggest middleweight names in the sport.
Arias (18-0, 9 KO) is an unbeaten prospect coming off of a strong win over Arif Magomedov on the Ward-Kovalev II undercard.
On the undercard, heavyweight prospect Jarrell Miller (19-0-1, 17 KO) will take on durable veteran Mariusz Wach (33-2, 17 KO) in a 10-round contest. Miller is potentially in line to face Anthony Joshua if he wins this fight. And in the opener, junior welterweights Roberto Ortiz (35-1-2, 26 KO) and Cletus Seldin (20-0, 16 KO) are also scheduled for 10 rounds.
Wil Esco will be on the RBR call tonight. Join us!
