Daniel "Miracle Man" Jacobs (33-2-0, 29 KOs) takes on undefeated Polish contender Maciej Sulecki (26-0-0, 10 KOs) in a 12-round middleweight showdown at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday, April 28, 2018.

Jacobs became known as the "Miracle Man" for his miraculous recovery from cancer in 2012. In December of 2015, he scored his biggest career victory with a first round knockout of rival Peter Quillin. In March of 2017, he took on the incredible Gennady Golovkin, and despite losing in a narrow 12-round decision, he forced Golovkin to go the distance for the first time in nine years. Most recently, in November of last year, Jacobs notched a dominant 12-round unanimous decision over then-undefeated Luis Arias. He now looks to continue his momentum.

Sulecki is a native of Warsaw, Poland, who ended a very successful 2017 with a 10-round unanimous decision over former world title challenger Jack Culcay last October. Over the course of his eight years as a professional, Sulecki has compiled wins against notables including Hugo Centano Jr., Grzegorz Proksa, Darryl Cunningham and Damian Ezequiel Bonelli.

"I'm looking forward to fighting Sulecki," said Jacobs. "He's an undefeated guy that I know will be looking to make a name for himself by beating me. I'm looking to have a great training camp and get myself focused to really put on a show for the Brooklyn fans."

"This is an excellent opportunity for me to fight one of the very best middleweights in the world," said Sulecki. "I'll be very well prepared to stay undefeated and defeat JacobsÂ…as I continue my march to become a world champion."

Preceding this fight will be an exciting match-up between the undefeated Brooklyn heavyweight Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller (20-0-1, 18 KOs) against the French former world title holder Johann "The Reptile" Duhaupus (37-4-0, 24 KOs), in a 12-round WBA World Heavyweight Title Eliminator.
