Barclay's Center, Brooklyn, New York, Aug. 1

Anyone who has met both these fighters in person will attest that they're two of the most likable guys in the sport so it's hard to root against either of them. But boxing is not a Mr. Congeniality contest, and Jacobs, as the younger, more composite and harder-punching combatant, wins this encounter by a unanimous decision in the 116-112 range.
What a scorcher this was turning out to be before Mora busted his ankle.
