Daniel Jacobs hopes an impressive showing against Maciej Sulecki will elevate him towards the biggest fights in the middleweight division.
On Thursday afternoon Jacobs and Sulecki took part in the final press conference ahead of their showdown at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday night.
Jacobs is excited to be fighting in Brooklyn and is looking forward to proving he is the best 160lbs boxer in the world.
“I get chills thinking about fighting at Barclays Center,” said Jacobs.” I truly believe in my heart that I am the best middleweight in the world. I look to be impressive in all of my outings. Whether I win by knockout or decision I want to look my best.”
“It’s not just me I’m representing up here, it’s my whole team, Andre Rozier has been my trainer since I first put on gloves.”
“Thanks to Matchroom Boxing for giving me the platform and to HBO for believing in me after a very controversial decision. I’m excited to face Sulecki and know that with a victory bigger fights await.
Sulecki is well aware of the task he faces on Saturday but is confident of causing a major upset:”This is a big fight and the best test for me, I know how good Danny is,” said Sulecki. “I’m strong, I’m fast and I’m ready to win. I’ve had a very camp with my Coach in Poland. I have great fans in the US and in England and look forward to having their support on Saturday night. I can’t wait to get in the ring.”
