In Brooklyn, New York, Daniel Jacobs (33-2, 29 KOs) weighed in at 159.6lbs and Maciej Sulecki (26-0,10 KOs) weighed in at 159.2lbs, both making weight for their matchup that was approved as a World Boxing Association (WBA) final eliminator to fight the WBA Super Middleweight Champion Gennady Golovkin.
The fight will be broadcast live on HBO premium network from the Barclays Center in New York. Jacobs is very happy about fighting in his hometown and also very grateful to be on HBO and fighting in a WBA title eliminator as he looks to set up a rematch with the kingpin of the division and long time WBA champion Gennady Golovkin.
Also on the HBO card broadcast from the Barclays Center will be Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller (20-0-1, 18KO’s), who weighed in at 304.lbs. He is fighting Johann Duhaupas (37-4, 24KO’s) who weighed in at 244.4lbs in a WBA heavyweight eliminator.
Miller is starting to be seen as a force in the heavyweight division as he tips the scales at 300lbs and has a punch and crowd-pleasing style to back up the size.
Additionally on the Barclays Center card is gold medalist and WBA World Female Lightweight Champion Katie Taylor (8-0, 4KO’s), who weighed in at 134.4lbs as she will be defending her title for the second time against Victoria Bustos (18-4) who came in under the lightweight limit of 134.2lbs.
Katie Taylor is seen as potentially the future of women boxing as she has a very fan-friendly style that is always pleasing to watch and is already a professional champion after a very long and decorated amateur career.
Shohjahon Ergashev (11-0, 11KO’s) weighed in at 139.6lbs in his fight against Zhimin Wang (10-2, 3KO’s), who weighed 139.4lbs, for the vacant World Boxing Association (WBA) International Super Lightweight World Title.
Ergashev was last seen in January blasting out hot prospect Sonny Fredrickson in the very first round of their bout on ShoBox. Ergashev has an extensive amateur career and looks to be a real blue chip prospect.
