Arias: Danny Jacobs is overrated & a runner
By Dan Ambrose: Luis Arias 18-0, 9 KOs) says he’s going to beat the “overrated, boring, runner Daniel Jacobs (32-2, 29 KOs) this Saturday night in their fight on HBO Championship Boxing on November 11 at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale. New York.
Arias wants to prove to everyone that Jacobs’ management made a mistake by picking him for this fight, because this is not going to be the easy fight that they thought it was going to be. Arias says he was upset when the fight as first announced for November 11 for HBO, as Jacobs’ people were talking about his next couple of fights, as if he was going to have an easy time winning. Arias wants to show them what a mistake they made by selecting him.
Arias says that after he beats Jacobs, HBO is going to sign him immediately to make him one of their house fighters on their network.
“I was hoping to get the Lemieux fight, but the Jacobs fight presented itself and I’m happy,” said Arias to Bad Culture TV. “I’m just mad because I was being overlooked. The fight got announced, and they were talking about his next couple of fights and what he was going to do,” said Arias about Jacobs. “I just felt like I was disrespected. This is not the easy fight that everybody swears it up to be. I’ll be throwing down. It’s going to be a very difficult fight for Danny Jacobs on Saturday,” said Arias.
Jacobs has had very few easy fights when facing high quality opposition. Jacobs is not that kind of a talent that wins fights easily when taking on top tier opposition. Jacobs’ fast knockout of Peter Quillin was the exception to the rule. Quillin got caught cold by a shot from Jacobs, and he didn’t take the punch well. Once Jacobs had Quillin hurt, he finished him off with a flurry of shots. Jacobs knocked out Sergio Mora twice, but he’s not a top tier fighter at middleweight.
“Overrated, boring, runner,” said Arias when asked what he thinks of when asked about Jacobs. “HBO, they’re going to sign me the moment I beat Jacobs. HBO is going to grab me. I’m willing to fight anybody in the division. I’m sure HBO is going to make sure I stay on the network. I’ve always wanted to be an HBO fighter,” said Arias.
Arias’ plan for Saturday night is to knockout Jacobs. Arias wants to make sure he gets the victory, and the best way for him to do that is to KO Jacobs. In Jacobs’ last fight, he lost a 12 round unanimous decision to middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin. Jacobs has been complaining ever since about how the judges got it wrong and how they should have given him the win. If Arias stops Jacobs, then he’ll take away his ability to complain of being robbed.
