“Anything is possible, we’re just working on our relationship, we trained one time which is cool, just to be back in that good company I love it. That spark has been something I’ve been missing and I’m just looking forward to building on that.”

Jacobs on how his split with Angela Simmons last year affected him

“Your personal life affects anything that you do from your work to your everyday life. Sometimes things don’t go to your liking, it’s life….Regardless of my personal life, I think the thrill for boxing was lost and I’ve finally gotten that thrill that I’ve been seeking and I’m looking forward to seeing what it looks like in the near future.”

Jacobs says he wants to fight Jermall Charlo

“That’s one of the fights that I want as far as my legacy fights. I do see that as a big fight, and its been brewing for a long time so I don’t see why it can’t happen.”

Jacobs says his focus now is legacy fights and being a Hall of Famer

“It would be solidified if I was to become a 2-division belt holder. I think it would also be solidified if I fight the key names (Charlo, GGG rematch) and look spectacular, or have an Arturo Gatti/Mikey Ward type fight. I’m down for all of that!”
