After an impressive 2nd round knock out last week (4-24-09) on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights, Daniel was added to the undercard of what is hailed as the biggest card of 2009 – Manny Pacquiao vs Ricky Hatton. This international mega-fight is also known as “The Battle of East & West” will have 20 million viewers worldwide, providing Jacobs with his biggest audience yet.
"Daniel Jacobs is one of the most impressive young fighters I have seen and we are extremely happy to have him on the May 2nd undercard. He is young, hungry and showing early signs being a championship caliber fighter. Fans already have a great line up with the May 2nd pay-per-view, but the addition of Daniel Jacobs makes this card even more exciting." - Oscar de la Hoya, President of Golden Boy Promotions.
