PBC on Spike - Jacobs vs Mora II: Live streaming results and round by round coverage

Daniel Jacobs and Sergio Mora meet again tonight, and Robert Easter Jr faces Richard Commey for a vacant lightweight belt.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Tonight at 9 pm ET on Spike, Premier Boxing Champions returns with a doubleheader from Pennsylvania, featuring WBA "world" middleweight titleholder Daniel Jacobs in a rematch against Sergio Mora, and a vacant lightweight title bout.

We’ll be here with live round by round coverage for both fights.

Jacobs (31-1, 28 KO) is the big favorite tonight, but Mora (28-4-2, 9 KO) is a crafty veteran who gave Jacobs a minor scare in their first fight last year, a bout that was truncated in the second round when Mora injured his ankle. Both fighters had been down in the opening round.

The co-feature for the vacant IBF lightweight title will see top prospect Robert Easter Jr (17-0, 14 KO) of Toledo, Ohio, take on Ghana’s Richard Commey (24-0, 22 KO). This is a really intriguing matchup between two guys wanting to take that next step and win a first world title, one a highly-regarded young fighter and the other still something of an unknown.

For more on the fights, check out our preview, and join us this evening!

Round 11: Easter looking a little tired, which isn't a huge shock, this is the deepest he's ever had to go in a fight, and he's been cracked with some big shots. Easter with a hard right hand. The jab has fallen away for him, which has been a problem. Commey 10-9, 105-103
