The glamorous world of boxing is growing strong.
Consequentially, a fantastic night of fighting may have us all on a fantastic stupor filled with emotion.
Giovanni Lorenzo is a former World Title Challenger and is composed about facing Daniel Jacobs.
The match will happen on August 19, 2013 at the Best Buy Theater in Brooklyn, New York. It is a battle for the vacant WBC Continental Americas Middleweight title.
“I’m very happy I’m fighting in Manhattan after so many years," Lorenzo stated via a press release provided by esnewsreporting.com earlier today.
The 10-round fight will be the main event on the Fox Sports One debut card.
Golden Boy has a deal with Fox and will air 24 live events a year on Fox's new network Fox Sports One.
Lorenzo is a 32 year old Dominican who is ranked No. 47 in the middleweight division by BoxRec. Significantly, Lorenzo will have a 2 inch reach advantage over Jacobs.
Lorenzo is a true champion. He could see the sunshine three hours before dawn.
“I look forward to facing Danny Jacobs, who is a very good fighter."
Jacobs is 26 years old and has fought a tremendous battle with Osteosarcoma, a common type of bone cancer. He was voted 'Prospect of the Year in 2009' by ESPN, and is a rising prospect on a 5-fight win streak.
The world of boxing has changed. I try to compare it with Shakespeare and all I am left with is a sense of superstition and pure humility.
Although Jacobs can't shake some of the things present in his life, perhaps he doesn't need to. Consequentially, Jacobs could not be any happier with his career.
“Two years ago, I was battling a war. I was paralyzed in a hospital battling cancer, so for me to come back and have my own main event in Times Square, it doesn’t get any better than that."
