Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs was born in Brownsville, New York in the United States on February 3rd in 1987. Jacobs had a spectacular amateur career winning 137 fights as well as 2 National Golden Gloves Championships, one as a welterweight and the other as a middleweight. In 2007 Jacobs made his professional boxing debut and his power was on display from the start as he scored a 1st round knockout. Jacobs knocked out the first nine men he faced before finally going the distance in his 10th fight.
In 2010, with a record of 20-0 and 17 wins coming by knockout Jacobs took on Dmitry Pirog for the vacant WBO middleweight world title but was stopped in the 5th round. Jacobs returned from the first loss of his career with a vengeance stopping the next 7 men he faced to earn a shot at the vacant WBA middleweight title. Jacobs won the title with a 5th round knockout and made two title defenses, winning both by knockout to run his record to 30-1 with 27 knockouts. The power punching champ will go for his 3rd straight world title defense in December of 2015.
