Daniel Jacobs: Brooklyn’s "Golden Child" Continues Fast Track!!

By Jason Sardelis - Saturday, August 22nd, in a show promoted as “Houston Heat” one fighter who has shown he can stand it is Brooklyn, New York’s" Golden Child" Daniel Jacobs 17-0,15Ko’s. Jacobs will be stepping up again facing “The Contender” Ishe "Sugar Shay" Smith, 21-3, 9Ko in a ten round bout that should open the HBO telecast. Jacobs and his team have applied their own heat to Jacob’s career fighting seventeen fights in twenty months recording an impressive if not red hot record of 17-0, 15Ko’s. A decisive victory over the crafty but light punching veteran Smith would put Jacob’s right in the tight middleweight mix..

Houston Heat’s main event features former Lightweight World Champion and Hometown Houston hero Juan "Baby Bull" Diaz 34-2, 17Ko’s. “The Bull” will be taking on another Brooklynite former 140 pound world titleholder Paulie "Magic Man" Malignaggi, 26-2, 5Ko’s who’s only loses have come at the hands of Miguel Cotto and Ricky Hatton.

I predict Jacobs with his great amateur background will not only get past Smith perform in outstanding fashion, then win by TKO. The only question then remains who his management team will pick as his next opponent. Will they continue his accelerated pace and again step up in opposition and go for a Sebastian Zbik or may be a Jamie Moore or Matthew Macklin who may not be quite as sharp but could certainly make it a tough going. Or maybe even a another light middleweight like Ishe Smith could match up nice. How about Alfredo Angulo or Sergio Martinez? Too much ? Too Soon?
