By Ken Hissner: At the Alexandra Palace, Muswell Hill, London, UK, Saturday over DAZN promoter Eddie Hearn (Matchroom Boxing) presented in the Main Event former WBA and IBF Middleweight champ now No. 8 IBF ranked Danny “Miracle Man” Jacobs, of New York losing a highly disputed decision to former WBA interim Super Middleweight champ and now WBA No. 4 ranked John “The Gorilla” Ryder, of London, UK, in a very dull fight.

In the Main Event former WBA and IBF Middle champ “The Miracle Man” Daniel Jacobs, NY, 37-4 (30), #166.9, of Brooklyn, NY, lost to former WBA interim Super Middle champ southpaw John “The Gorilla” Ryder, 31-5 (17), #167, of Islington, London, UK, over 12 dull rounds.

In the first round, there was little contact. Jacobs landed a right to the mid-section with a minute remaining the best from him. In the second and third rounds, the only difference was Jacobs occasionally turning southpaw. In the fourth round, referee Steve Gray continues to be too slow to break the fighters up from so many clinches. The “Gorilla” is more like a pussycat, and Jacobs, outside of a jab, isn’t doing much but winning each round.

In the fifth round little action until the final twenty seconds when Jacobs landed a solid right uppercut to the chin of Ryder. In the sixth round, after half a minute, Ryder finally landed an overhand left, putting Jacobs into the ropes before clinching. He also landed a solid left in the final thirty seconds. In the seventh round, final thirty seconds, Ryder rallied with a flurry.

In the eighth round again, it wasn’t until the last thirty seconds when Ryder opened up with a flurry to take another round. In the ninth round, the format continues the same until the final minute with Ryder swarming Jacobs. In the tenth round, Jacobs turned southpaw and moving using a good jab as Ryder followed him around the ring.

In the eleventh round, it was close, with Jacobs outworking Ryder. In the twelfth and final round Ryder looked exhausted as Jacobs did enough to win another round and the fight.

Scores were Marcus McDonnell 15-113 for Jacobs, Mike Fitzgerald, and Jean Robert-Laine 115-113 and 115-113 Ryder. This writer had it 116-112 Jacobs. I don’t know what title this elimination was for but let’s hope it’s not with Canelo.

In the fourth through the seventh rounds, Cash continued outworking Madiev, taking another two rounds though receiving a bloody nose in the early part of the sixth. Going into the fight, it was Madiev who said he would “school Cash,” but it was Cash who, through six rounds except for the first, had done the schooling. In the eighth round, Cash continues showing angles and good footwork to stay in front of Madiev before landing his arsenal.

In the ninth round, Cash lined up his right hand with his solid left to the chin of Madiev. Madiev kept coming forward but with no answer to Cash’s jab. In the tenth and final round, Madiev came roaring out, landing a right twenty seconds into the round and down went Cash with a cut on his left eyebrow and an 8-count. Cash held on for his head to clear when referee Mark Lyson took away a point from Cash for holding. In the final seconds, Cash started returning punches before ending it in a clinch.

Scores were 95-92 by two scores, as was this writer’s, and 94-93.

With a minute remaining in the round, Fisher landed a solid right, almost dropping Egnuema. In the second round, both unloaded with Fisher, the busier of the two with the cut opening again.

In the third and fourth rounds, the cut didn’t open while Fisher continued to outwork Egnueman though missing half of his wild swinging rights.

A minute in the fifth round, Egnueman landed a right, and a second later, Fisher spit out his mouthpiece. He controlled the round. In the sixth and final round, Fisher continued holding out his jab, not snapping it out, while Egnueman had little offense throughout. He won the vacant Spanish title in 2019 but never defended it. Fisher went the distance for the first time in his five fights, winning all six rounds.
