SportsGrid Is Giving Away A Daniel Jacobs Autographed Glove
Daniel Jacobs has one of the most compelling stories in all of boxing -- in 2011, the middleweight fighter was diagnosed with bone cancer and missed almost two years.
But he came back, and he dominated, defeating 10 opponents in a row and claiming the WBA and WBC Middleweight titles before losing a unanimous decision to Gennady Golovkin this March.
Jacobs is now getting back in the ring on Nov. 11, headlining a card that pits him against undefeated (18-0, 9 KOs) Luis Arias in the main event. Bonus -- this is a straight HBO fight, with no PPV element to it. Double bonus -- there's a heavyweight undercard featuring Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller, who is 19-0-1 with 17 knockouts.
But this is about Jacobs, and take a look below at a very cool element of his autograph, with the "MM" on the bottom right, which stands for "Miracle Man." Not the same as former MLB-er Chris Snellling's "YODA," but probably more heart-warming.
All you have to do to win is send an email with the subject line "Jacobs glove" to sgintern at anthemse dot com. We'll pick a winner at random on Saturday.
The deadline to enter is 11:59 pm on Friday, Nov. 10.
The Jacobs card airs live on HBO at 10 p.m. (Eastern) on Nov. 11.
