Yeah, you can make it sound good outside the ring – you can trash talk and you can try and hype yourself up but it’s a totally different story once you get inside that ring – you get hit then you realize you are in there with a totally different calibre of fighter,” Jacobs ominously warned his next opponent.
Jacobs stressed the fact there are ‘levels’ in the sport of boxing and Jacobs is intent on showing the huge gulf in class between them. “I am elite compared to the calibre of opponents he has fought in his professional career. He talks about the amateurs but you can’t talk about amateurs and I don’t know why he’s highlighting his amateur career. I mean, when do we highlight amateur fights at this level – it really doesn’t mean anything now. There are levels to this game and I am going to show him that on November 11” Jacobs said on a final note.
