DANIEL JACOBS VS. JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ JR.
ON DECEMBER 20TH

Former middleweight world titleholders Daniel Jacobs and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. will meet in a 12-round super middleweight bout on Dec. 20, Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn announced Friday at a news conference in Los Angeles.
The fight, expected to be finalized for weeks, will take place in Phoenix at Talking Stick Resort Arena -- home to the city's NBA and NHL teams -- and is due to headline a card on DAZN as part of Jacobs' deal with the streaming service for multiple multimillion dollar comeback fights following his decision loss in a middleweight unification fight with Canelo Alvarez on May 4.
"Daniel returns from his points defeat to Canelo to move up in weight on his quest to become a two-weight world champion," Hearn said. "He faces a determined Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., who looks for redemption at the site of his father's last-ever professional fight. We expect a great fight, a huge crowd and a stacked card as we'll look to close out the year in style."
Chavez's participation in the bout comes with some controversy. He was temporarily suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for declining to submit to a random Voluntary Anti-Doping Association drug test, but that is not expected to impact the bout because, according to Hearn, the Arizona Boxing Commission has already issued a license to Chavez.
