For the first time since 2020, Daniel Jacobs will return to action against John Ryder. Taking place on February 12 inside Alexandra Palace in London, both fighters will look to prove they are contenders within the super-middleweight division.
Jacobs, a two-time Golden Gloves winner, made his pro debut in 2007. He won the WBA middleweight title in 2014 and defended it four times. He lost the title against Gennadiy Golovkin in 2017. Jacobs won three in a row following that loss, including the IBF middleweight title, but lost it against Canelo Alvarez in 2019.
The “Miracle Man” has won two in a row since then, but has not fought since November 2020 against Gabriel Rosado.
Ryder made his pro debut in 2010. “The Gorilla” has competed for numerous titles, and won the interim WBA super-middleweight title in 2019. Challenging Callum Smith for the WBA and The Ring super-middleweight titles in 2019, Ryder lost via unanimous decision. He has since won two in a row, beating Jozef Jurko via TKO back in September.
