DANIEL JACOBS
Having Chris Algieri in camp is great – it’s the second time around and it makes for a great family atmosphere. But at the same time, i am a loner. I like to be alone. I like to isolate myself because on fight night I am in that ring all by myself so I like to get used to being the only person leading up to the fight. On Saturday night, I just want to win impressively so i can have another fight. That is my only goal. I want to be champion again and go after the heavy hitters. Not excluding anyone, but I feel I am the best middleweight in the world and i want to prove that and Saturday night is going to be the first stepping stone.

Jarrell Miller, Mariusz Wach - EDDIE HEARN:  This big fight on November 11 is very important in the heavyweight division.  Jarrell Miller is making big waves is the US right now and of course in the world rankings and Mariusz who has been, for a long time, they come together and they meet in a pivotal clash on November 11.

Jacobs – Arias interviews for Nov.11 clash on HBO

Daniel Jacobs, Eddie Hearn, Luis Arias - EDDIE HEARN:  When I saw Luis Arias fight on the Kovalev-Ward undercard, I thought 'This is a guy that really excited me.'  He had plenty of charisma and he loves to fight and he could become a star on November 11.  In the other corner a very determined Daniel Jacobs, trying to recapture the title and trying to pick up more championship belts and potentially unify the division.  He's a honest a kid if I ever saw one and since the press conference in New York Danny Jacobs has been extremely motivated.  I believe that his team and certainly I and Roc Nation know all about the threat of Luis Arias and I think this is a great fight.
