Notes

  • Daniel Jacobs 15-0 (14 KOs) vs. Michael Walker 19-1-2 (12 KOs)
  • Fight was on the undercard of Ricky Hatton vs. Manny Pacquiao.
  • Jacobs, who had fought just 8 days earlier on ESPN Friday Night Fights against Jose Varela, was a late replacement for James Kirkland, who was arrested on April 19th for felony gun possession.
  • Walker came in with a record of 1-1-1 in his last three bouts.
  • Jacobs won all of the eight rounds on points behind left and right jabs, switching stances from traditional to southpaw frequently to confuse Walker. However, Walker gave a good accounting of himself in magnificent condition and landed the more effective power punches, but he couldn't match Jacobs hand speed, offensive output, and ring generalship.
