Danny Jacobs to headline on first FOX Sports 1 card from Golden Boy

Elsa

With Golden Boy's new Monday night boxing series set to begin, Danny Jacobs has drawn the first main event bout for the show.

Danny Jacobs has had a successful and remarkable return so far after beating cancer, and now the 26-year-old middleweight prospect will be featured in the main event on Golden Boy's first FOX Sports 1 event on Monday, August 19. Jacobs will face former world title challenger Giovanni Lorenzo.

Jacobs (25-1, 22 KO) has gone 3-0 since returning to the ring last October, beating Josh Luteran, Chris Fitzpatrick, and Keenan Collins, all by stoppage, and all in dominant performances. Those guys aren't on the level of Lorenzo (32-5, 24 KO), a solid veteran who has fallen short against his better opponents, including Sebastian Sylvester, Felix Sturm, Hassan N'Dam, Raul Marquez, and most recently, Sam Soliman.

The 32-year-old Dominican is based out of New York City, and along with Brooklyn's Jacobs, should be able to bring in a decent crowd at the Best Buy Theater, a small concert venue in Manhattan that could have great atmosphere if the house can get packed. Capacity is just over 2,000.

Also on the card, 20-year-old junior middleweight Eddie Gomez (14-0, 9 KO) will face veteran Steve Upsher Chambers (24-2-1, 6 KO). Chambers, 28, is coming off of a decision loss last October against Luis Collazo. 2012 U.S. Olympian Marcus Browne (5-0, 5 KO) is also slated for action, as well as super bantamweight Claude Staten Jr, who won his March pro debut in Brooklyn.
