Daniel Jacobs back to boxing after beating cancer, returns on Oct. 20 Barclays card

Daniel Jacobs hits the comeback trail after beating cancer, fighting on the October 20 card at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

Middleweight prospect Daniel Jacobs returns to the ring on October 20 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, part of Golden Boy and Showtime's big event, the first-ever boxing card at the brand-new building. He spoke with RingTV.com's Bill Emes recently.

"I've been out for a minute because I was diagnosed with cancer, I was paralyzed. THis whole year and a half for me has been rough. But God has been good, and I've been dedicated to getting back and getting in 100% health. And now I stand before you better man, and we're gonna open up this Barclays Center in style."

... "Now, there's nothing stopping me. After everything I've been through in a year and a half, my determination is sky-high. My motivation is sky-high. There's nothing that's gonna stop me. God willing, we're gonna get this world championship, and we're gonna make history."

"I've still got a lot of rust to shake off, but I've been looking good in the gym. You never want to compare the gym to the actual fights, so I have yet to see how I'm gonna actually perform. But I've been looking good, I'm in shape. I'm already 168. We're gonna be fighting at 165. I'm in shape. I'm looking forward to it. We've been training since months ago. I've been looking forward to this opportunity, and once I get it, there's gonna be no stopping me."
