In the aftermath of tasting defeat against Gennady Golovkin, Brooklyn boxer Danny Jacobs (32-2, 29 KOs) is looking for his next opponent. Make no mistake about it, Jacobs has his eyes set on Billy Joe Saunders (24-0, 12 KOs) and clearly has been on a while. According to Jacobs the problem here is that Saunders doesn’t seem to care or even acknowledge who Jacobs is.
The American had this to say in a recent interview with boxingscene.com:
“If the opportunity comes up where I can fight Saunders, obviously that’s something that I would love to do, I would even travel over to where he is. That’s how confident I am that I can beat B.J. But he has shown no interest. He has never even been verbal about fighting me. He’s never even mentioned any of my fights in interviews. It’s surprising to me. It’s as if he doesn’t even know I exist. And to see these different things, it’s not looking good for me and him [to fight] because I don’t know if he takes me serious or not,” worried Jacobs.
