Daniel Jacobs smiled in his corner after an action-packed third round [url=http://www.buccaneersfootballauthentic.com/alex-cappa-jersey-authentic]Youth Alex Cappa Jersey[/url] , looking pleased to be in a tough fight.

It wasn’t clear he would win it until he knocked Maciej Sulecki down with the kind of punch he wants to throw at the middleweight division’s biggest names.

The 12th-round knockdown helped Jacobs win a unanimous decision Saturday night, strengthening his hopes of getting another title shot.

Jacobs pulled out a competitive fight, winning by scores of 117-110, 116-111 and 115-112 and handing the Polish fighter his first loss.

”Going into the late rounds, the championship rounds, I mean ultimately what I was thinking was just to give these fans a great show,” Jacobs said.

The Associated Press scored it 116-111 for Jacobs.

Jacobs (34-2-0) became the mandatory challenger for the WBA 160-pound title, giving the popular Brooklyn fighter and cancer survivor hopes of a chance to avenge his unanimous decision loss to Gennady Golovkin from last year. Golovkin is fighting next week and afterward may want to turn his attention back to Canelo Alvarez after their planned May 5 rematch was scrapped when Alvarez was suspended for six months by the Nevada Athletic Commission for failing two drug tests.

So Jacobs also mentioned a fight with Jermall Charlo, who became the WBC’s interim middleweight champ with a second-round knockout of Hugo Centeno Jr. in this same ring last week.

”My plan is to fight any of the champions with the belts [url=http://www.pittsburghsteelersteamstore.com/mason-rudolph-jersey]Authentic Mason Rudolph Jersey[/url] , any of the top guys at middleweight,” Jacobs said. ”If Brooklyn wants Charlo, then Charlo it will be.”

Jacobs had a much tougher time with Sulecki (26-1), who seemed to gain confidence as the fight went on and was getting the better of some of the action in the late rounds until Jacobs caught him with a quick right to the head early in the 12th, sending Sulecki to the canvas as Brooklyn fans roared for the hometown fighter.

There had been chants of ”Brook-lyn, Brook-lyn” earlier in the bout from the local fans that made up the announced crowd of 7,892 at Barclays Center. But the vocal section of Polish fans grew louder in the later rounds as their fighter rallied.

They had traded hard shots across the final seconds of the third, Jacobs smiling in his corner afterward as if pleased the action was picking up. Disappointed that Luis Arias went defensive and he had to settle for a decision in his last bout, Jacobs seemed to enjoy being in a real fight Saturday.

He won it by finding a way to be just a bit quicker than Sulecki in their exchanges. But promoter Eddie Hearn has been calling Jacobs the best middleweight in the world [url=http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com]Cowboys Authentic Jerseys[/url] , and at times Saturday he was barely the best middleweight in the ring.

But Hearn things Jacobs’ performance will rise with his next opponent.

”Now he must have a marquee fight next because he will rise and box even better against the better fighters,” Hearn said.

Earlier, Jarrell Miller remained unbeaten and made his case for a potential shot at heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua by winning a unanimous decision against Johann Duhaupas.

The 304-pound ”Big Baby” won 119-109 on two judges’ cards and 117-111 on the other. Also a Brooklyn native, he improved to 21-0-1 in just his fourth fight that didn’t end in a stoppage.

He sure tried, though, pounding away with power shots throughout the fight that had swelling all around Duhaupas’ eyes in the final rounds.

”He was a tough, durable fighter,” Miller said. ”I thought I could get him out of there earlier but he ate all my punches, even the ones I threw with bad intentions.”

Hearn discussed the possibility of having Joshua [url=http://www.kansascitychiefsteamonline.com/breeland-speaks-jersey]Authentic Breeland Speaks Jersey[/url] , holder of three heavyweight title belts, face Miller next, rather than a unification bout against Deontay Wilder, in what would be his first fight outside of his native Britain.

”I’m ready for Anthony Joshua,” Miller said. ”Let’s bring him to Brooklyn and show him how we do it.”

The pressure was on Miller to fight and entertain well to look worthy of the matchup, and he was up to the task. He came to the ring in a ”Black Panther” mask and promptly began pounding Duhaupas (37-5) with an array of punches, trapping his nearly 60-pounds-lighter opponent against the ropes and crouching low to go to the body or get good leverage to fire uppercuts.

The brash big man said he wants the Joshua fight but made it clear he will have other options.

”I’m not going to sit here and sit on my knees and beg,” he said.



The New York Jets have signed their last two sixth-round draft picks in cornerback Parry Nickerson and defensive lineman Folorunso Fatukasi.

The signings Sunday leave just three of the Jets’ six selections without contracts: quarterback Sam Darnold, the No. 3 overall pick; third-rounder Nathan Shepherd [url=http://www.patriotscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-adrian-clayborn-jersey]Authentic Adrian Clayborn Jersey[/url] , a defensive lineman from Fort Hays State; and fourth-rounder Chris Herndon, a tight end from Miami.

Running back Trenton Cannon, a sixth-rounder from Virginia State, was signed Friday.

Nickerson had 18 interceptions in 48 games at Tulane and is expected to contribute in the secondary and on special teams. Fatukasi had 14 sacks in 48 games at UConn and will add depth to the Jets’ defensive line.

New York also announced it signed undrafted rookie linebackers Frankie Luvu and Anthony Wint, and waived cornerback Reggie Hall and defensive tackle Lord Hyeamang.
