Former WBA Middleweight champion Daniel "Miracle Man" Jacobs (32-2-0, 29 KOs) will take on the undefeated Luis Arias (18-0-0, 9 KOs) with the exciting match-up set for Saturday, November 11 at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.

Jacobs is back in action following his brilliant performance in New York against Gennady Golovkin last March. While Jacobs lost that battle, it was an impressive showing, going the distance all 12 rounds. Now, the Brooklyn native is targeting world title action in 2018 and will be looking for an explosive performance against the unbeaten Arias to signal his intent to be recognized as the top fighter in the deeply talented 160 pound division.

Wisconsin-based Arias looks to spoil Jacobs' plans at the first hurdle. The 27-year old decorated amateur and USBA champion is thrilled to have landed the huge fight, which he's been craving to announce himself on the world stage.

"We wanted a real fight for the fans and have picked a young hungry lion in Luis Arias," said Jacobs. "I'm looking to make a real statement on November 11 and prove I am number one in this division. Don't miss it!"

"I've been hungry for a fight of this magnitude and I'm going to shock the world," said Arias. "Danny is a talented fighter, but I thrive in the limelight and look forward to showing the boxing world that I'm a force to be reckoned with."

Preceding this fight will be a heavyweight match-up between the undefeated Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller (19-0-0, 17 KOs) who will take on Poland's former world title holder Mariusz Wach (33-2-0, 17 KOs). Miller is looking to continue his rise and leave himself poised to take a world title next year, but Wach aims to put a stop to these plans.
