“I’m here is to win and look spectacular and really make a statement.

“I expect Brooklyn to be in the house, that’s for sure.”


Danny Jacobs

“To have gone through what I’ve gone through in the past year and a half (his battle with cancer and paralysis caused by a large tumor on his spine), to have this opportunity and attention, to have people say I appreciate you, it’s an amazing feeling.


“To have this amazing Barclays’ card on October 20, it’s going to be historical.


“The doctors told me I would never be able to box again.  It was the crazy part of me that wanted to do what the doctors told me I couldn’t do.”
