Jacobs-Mora rematch set for September 9
Sergio Mora (28-4-2, 9 KOs) will finally get his rematch against Daniel Jacobs (31-1, 28 KOs) on the September 9 edition of Premier Boxing Champions on Spike.
The two first met in August 2015, in a back-and-forth contest that saw both men hit the canvas. However, Mora suffered an ankle injury upon going down, prompting the fight to get stopped when Mora was unable to
“I don’t think Jacobs wanted this rematch, but it was destined to happen and now he has to deal with it,” said Mora. “I thought the first fight was going my way. I knocked him down in the first round and was out boxing him in the second round. He knows that I have enough power to hurt him. He has more to worry about going into this fight than in the first fight. Look at my resume, I have fought solid opposition. Jacobs doesn’t have that type of resume.”
The fight takes place at the Santander Arena in Reading, Pa. (airing at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT), with tickets going on sale today.
“This is business for me, but it is also more personal than any fight I have ever had,” said Jacobs. “Sergio has been using these antics online to get this rematch and he has gotten under my skin. There has been a lot of back and forth as far as people’s opinions as to who would have won the fight had he not gotten hurt. I am looking at this as an opportunity to clarify that I am the real champion. I want to shut his trap in primetime.”
The broadcast will also feature a lightweight bout between Robert Easter Jr. (17-0, 14 KOs) and Richard Commey (24-0, 22 KOs), while Travis Kauffman will also be on the card.
