Middleweight Daniel “The Golden Child” Jacobs (22-1, 19 KOs) says he’s 100% ready for his comeback fight on Saturday night in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center against Josh Luteran (13-1, 9 KOs). “Mentally, I’m ready for battle especially after training for six months. It’s long overdue. Physically, I made weight three weeks ago so I’m ready to go. I’m just waiting for Saturday night.”

Few expected Jacobs to return to boxing after being diagnosed with cancer in 2011. “I am living proof of what hard work and determination can get you. I’ve suffered, been paralyzed and doctors told me I would never be able to box again.”

Win or lose on Saturday night, Jacobs is already a winner.
