Jerry Glick reporting; They call him the Miracle Man because he beat cancer, now after trading punches on a fairly even basis with Yovanny Lorenzo, 158 ½, for almost four rounds Daniel Jacobs pulled out another miracle of sorts, a powerful left hook/straight right combination that put Lorenzo down and out at 2:05 of the third round, capturing the vacant WBC Continental Americas Middleweight Title on Golden Boy’s show at the Best Buy Theater on Times Square, NY.
Referee Steve Willis started to count, but wisely thought better of it and halted the fight. Lorenzo, 158 ½, watched his record fall to 32-6 (24 KOs), as Jacobs, 159, improved to 26-1 (23 KOs).
