Daniel Jacobs

Daniel Jacobs (born February 3, 1987) is an American professional boxer. He is a two-time middleweight world champion, having held the IBF title from 2018 to 2019 and the WBA (Regular) title from 2014 to 2017. Nicknamed the “Miracle Man,” Jacobs’ career was almost cut short in 2011 due to osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. He went on to make a full recovery after spending 19 months out of the sport, meanwhile recovering from severe operation-induced injuries generally perceived as crippling. As an amateur boxer, Jacobs recorded 137 wins and 7 losses whilst capturing Gold in 2 Golden Gloves *1 in the US National Championships.

As of August 2018, Jacobs is ranked as the world’s third best active middleweight by The Ring magazine, the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board and BoxRec. He is particularly known for his exceptional punching power, with an 82.8% knockout-to-win ratio, and is stylistically considered an all-around fighter with good movement and hand speed.*
