WBA middleweight champion Danny Jacobs, who recently defeated previously unbeaten and former world champion Peter Quillin in one round earlier this month, could be looking at a unification fight against the winner of this Saturday’s (December 19) Andy Lee-Billy Joe Saunders WBO 160lb clash.
Jacobs gave his thoughts on the fight: “I’m excited for the winner of Lee vs. Saunders,” he said. “I’m rooting for Andy Lee because I think that’s a bigger fight for me. Doing something in the U.S. between the two of us would make a lot of sense. He has a huge following here in New York, just like me obviously. It would be a classic showdown that Brooklyn would appreciate.
“May the best man win between the two of them, but if Andy wins I think it would be very interesting for both of us.”
