Essex boxing prospect Tommy "Sweet T" Jacobs has promised to “steal the show” tomorrow night in Crawley, when he climbs through the ropes for the biggest fight of his pro career.
Jacobs, 29 from Colchester will collide with Middlesborough's Chris Wood in a potential fight of the night showdown at the K2 arena, and after a frustrating year of inactivity due to numerous opponents falling through outside of the Queensbury ranks, Jacob's has promised to put on the performance of his life against the highly experienced Yorkshireman.
“ Its been a frustrating time for me over the last 6 months with 5 potential fights falling through on numerous promotions, but now I’ve got this set in stone and I know the fight is on, I can’t wait to get in that ring and put on a show,” Jacobs said.
After a sterling amateur career which saw Jacobs box alongside current world champion Billy Joe Saunders and Olympic silver medallist Amir Khan on the England squad, the lack of activity as a pro due to numerous issues with opponents falling through has been a bitter pill to swallow, but with prospect of showcasing his undeniable talents to a massive new audience, Jacobs is hungry to give the shows fans a performance to remember.
“ Picking yourself up from the disappointment of so many fights not happening is hard, but I'll put that behind me as I step in that ring and face Wood”, continued Jacobs.
“ I’m in this sport to win fights, but ultimately it’s all about titles for me and I want to become a household name that everyone knows”
Jacob's third professional assignment will not be an easy nights work on paper, with Wood entering the contest after winning 45 out of 60 amateur contests, and 3 solid wins on the pro circuit, but Jacob's believes Wood's will be fighting the best "Sweet T" there has ever been on the night.
“ I’ve got the best supporters in world and a fantastic team backing me, so the Sweet T army is going to take the roof off the K2 tomorrow night”
"I've done all the hard work in the gym now, so I'm ready for war on Saturday"
Jacobs fight will feature on the undercard of the big Reisser Only The Brave promotion taking place tomorrow night the K2 arena in Crawley, West Sussex, and for ticket enquiries contact the Box Office on 0203 751 8599
