Paulie Malignaggi, Daniel Jacobs ready for Barclays boxing debut on October 20

WBA welterweight champ Paulie Malignaggi and comebacking middleweight prospect Daniel Jacobs are geared up for their Barclays Center fights on October 20, live on Showtime.

Paulie Malignaggi will face Pablo Cesar Cano for Malignaggi's WBA welterweight title on October 20, part of the big Golden Boy and Showtime card at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, the first-ever boxing show at the brand-new venue. On the undercard, middleweight prospect Daniel Jacobs returns to the ring for the first time since beating cancer. The two worked out at Gleason's Gym for the media on Tuesday.

Paulie Malignaggi

"The whole motivation was not just to defend a world title but to put on a show for Brooklyn.

"I'm here is to win and look spectacular and really make a statement.

"I expect Brooklyn to be in the house, that's for sure."

Daniel Jacobs

"To have gone through what I've gone through in the past year and a half (his battle with cancer and paralysis caused by a large tumor on his spine), to have this opportunity and attention, to have people say I appreciate you, it's an amazing feeling.

"To have this amazing Barclays' card on October 20, it's going to be historical.

"The doctors told me I would never be able to box again. It was the crazy part of me that wanted to do what the doctors told me I couldn't do."
