On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman spoke with Daniel Jacobs, Maciej Sulecki, and Johann Duhaupas.
On April 28, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, Daniel Jacobs of Brooklyn (33-2, 29 KOs) will fight the undefeated Maciej Sulecki of Poland (26-0, 10 KOs) in a WBA middleweight title eliminator. Also on that card will be a WBA heavyweight title eliminator between unbeaten contender Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller of Brooklyn (20-0-1,18 KOs) and former title challenger Johann Duhupaus of France (37-4, 24 KOs). In addition, one of the stars of women's boxing, the unbeaten WBA women's lightweight champ Katie Taylor of Ireland (8-0, 4 KOs), will fight IBF women's lightweight champ Victoria Bustos of Argentina (18-4, 0 KOs), in a title unification fight. This card will be shown live in the U.S. on HBO and in the U.K. on Sky Sports.
We spoke with Daniel Jacobs, Maciej Sulecki, and Johann Duhaupas on a media conference call last week. We also discuss the coming changing of the guard in the middleweight division, how the Jacobs-Sulecki fight fits into this situation, and which fighters may soon rise to the top.
