Saturday night, Nov. 11, saw former WBA middleweight champion Danny “Miracle Man” Jacobs (33-2, 29 KO’s) step into the ring to score a clear-cut victory over previously undefeated contender Luis “Cuba” Arias (18-1, 9 KO’s) inside of the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.

On HBO’s airwaves, Jacobs was simply too fast, too skilled, and too strong for Arias, who was unable to mount an attack during the match. Following 12 rounds, scorecards reading 120-107, 119-108, and 118-109 were read in Jacobs’ favor, as he wins his return bout following his razor-thin March defeat at the hands of Gennady Golovkin.
