DANIEL JACOBS TO WEAR BROOKLYN BOXING™ GEAR FOR THE FIRST TIME IN RING TONIGHT
BROOKLYN (Sept. 9, 2016) – World middleweight champion and Brooklyn native Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs (31-1-0) will represent BROOKLYN BOXING, the boxing brand for Barclays Center, for the first time in the ring in tonight’s anticipated re-match against Sergio “The Latin Snake” Mora (28-4-2).
Tonight, as Jacobs and his corner men take their famed walk from his branded locker room to the ring, they’ll wear a full array of BROOKLYN BOXING gear. Jacobs’ fight kit will include branded gloves, trunks and a robe, which will feature his “Miracle Man” moniker, all in BROOKLYN BOXING’s signature black and cyan. In addition, in what has become custom for Jacobs, his trunks will display his son’s name, Nate, across the waistband.
Fans can purchase their own apparel online at BrooklynBoxingShop.com and in-person at Santander Arena at merchandise stands on the concourse.
“I’m excited to represent BROOKLYN BOXING for the first time in the ring tonight,” said Jacobs. “Brooklyn is where I learned the sport and it’s my home, but I’m proud to bring BROOKLYN BOXING to fans in Reading, Pa. and showcase it nationwide on SPIKE TV.”
“Daniel epitomizes what boxing means in Brooklyn,” said Brett Yormark, CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment. “He’s been an underdog for most of his life and he’s had setbacks, but he’s persevered to overcome them and now he’s one of the best in the sport. Tonight will be a milestone for BROOKLYN BOXING as Daniel, a role model for many in our community, takes center stage representing our brand.”
Jacobs was named the face of BROOKLYN BOXING in June 2016, and in support of the alliance, the brand will make an annual donation to Jacobs’ Get In The Ring Foundation, through which he advocates for children struggling with cancer, childhood obesity, and bullying.
Launched in April 2016, the new BROOKLYN BOXING merchandise line features a unique brand of active wear, lifestyle apparel, accessories for men and women, fighters and fans alike.
The assortment includes in-ring essentials like BROOKLYN BOXING training gear, gloves and corner buckets, as well as street wear such as hats, hoodies, shirts, socks and skateboards.
