Will Others Follow in Daniel Jacobs Footsteps?

This weekend at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York one of the best middleweights in the world will step back in the ring as Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs (32-2, 29 KOs) makes his return. The Brooklyn native will take on a formidable opponent in Milwaukee’s Luis “Cuba” Arias (18-0, 9 KOs). Back in September during the HBO telecast of lightweight champion Jorge Linares title defense against Luke Campbell, Jacobs announced that he had signed a multi-fight deal with HBO and U.K. promoter Eddie Hearn joining the Matchroom Boxing stable. The question for many will be if other fighters that are advised by Haymon will follow the same path as Jacobs.
