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.”
