TWELVE months ago, Sergio “The Latin” Snake” Mora (28-4-2, 9 KOs) was defeated by current WBA World middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs (31-1, 28 KOs) in Brooklyn, New York.

The official result was a TKO victory for Jacobs. However, the notch in Mora’s loss column doesn’t tell the whole story as his trip to the canvas was primarly caused by a crippling ankle injury rather than a Jacobs punch.

He clamored for the New York State Athletic Commission to overturn the original ruling but his demands fell on deaf ears and the loss on his record stood intact.
