Joe Smith Jr. and Daniel Jacobs May Fight For Light Heavyweight Title
Recently crowned WBO light heavyweight world champion Joe Smith Jr. could make his first defense against former middleweight titleholder Daniel Jacobs. The Smith camp is weighing an offer made by Jacobs promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing for the fight, which would take place in the fall in New York City.
“I think it was a great offer that Eddie made. Its multiple times more than Joe Smith has ever made in his life, so I think it was a strong offer. It’ll be the biggest fight between New Yorkers in New York in a long time.”
