Highlights

  • —Both fighters hit the canvas in the first round: Mora from a counter right hand to the nose, and Jacobs a short left hook to the jab.

  • —Jacobs enjoyed the better of the action in the second, aggressively moving forward and pressuring Mora with a double-handed attack until there was about 27 seconds left.

  • —Jacobs fired a right and landed on Mora, who crumpled to the canvas while leaning to avoid the blow. Mora complained of hearing a "pop," referee Gary Rosato waved an end at the 2:55 mark, and Mora was wheeled from the arena with an apparent broken ankle.

What started out as an action-packed bout ended quickly when Sergio Mora injured his ankle on a second-round knockdown and was unable to continue, giving Daniel Jacobs a win by technical knockout.

Mora considered himself to be Jacobs’ most difficult opponent to date, but the former 154-pound champion was proven wrong as a result of a bizarre ending.

Jacobs retained his 160-pound championship by second-round technical knockout, securing his 10th consecutive victory over a five-year span.

The end came after Jacobs landed a right hand with 27 seconds left in the second round against Mora, who while leaning right to avoid the blow crumpled to the canvas, limped when he arose and complained of hearing a “pop.”

Referee Gary Rosato ruled that Mora could no longer continue, waving an end to the fight at the 2:55 mark of the second round as Mora was removed from the arena with an apparent broken ankle.
