DANIEL JACOBS will not take Sergio Mora lightly when he defends his WBA world middleweight title against the 34-year-old at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, New York on August 1.

The two will meet on the same bill as Danny Garcia’s next fight, against Brooklyn native Paulie Malignaggi.

Despite being installed as a betting favourite against the former light-middleweight world champion, Jacobs, 28, is expecting a difficult fight against the slick Mora.
