DANIEL “The Miracle Man” Jacobs (31-1, 28 KOs) and Sergio “The Latin” Snake Mora (28-4-2, 9 KOs) each made weight ahead of their “regular” WBA world championship rematch on Friday.

The numbers for Jacobs and Mora read 159.6 pounds and 159.3 pounds, respectively. So, as they say in the business, we have ourselves a fight.

Jacobs was the heavy favorite heading into their first match but Mora, who is not particularly known for his punching power, surprised many by responding to his own trip to the canvas with a left hook that sent Jacobs there as well. It was a whirlwind start to the fight to say the least.
