LATER this year middleweight champion Danny Jacobs aims to move up to 168lbs and fight a star name in Julio Cesar Chavez Jnr.

The date being targeted for the bout is December 20 with the MGM Grand in Las Vegas the potential venue. Streaming service DAZN would broadcast in the US.

Confident American Jacobs has fought both Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez. He was not victorious but acquitted himself well in those two points defeats. He also beat impressive then stablemate Sergey Derevyanchenko to win the IBF middleweight title last year.
