No one was probably surprised when Daniel Jacobs dropped Sergio Mora in the first round of their bout at the Barclay's Center on Saturday evening. On the other hand, many were probably surprised when Mora returned the favor by dropping Jacobs just second later.
Yup, it was a wild first round of middleweight boxing on Premiere Boxing Champion's second ESPN broadcast. Yet things were only going to get wilder. For Mora went down again in the second. And when he got up, he was clearly injured, for he was hobbling - if you could even call it that - on his leg.
The referee asked Mora if he wanted to continue. There was some confusion. Then the referee stopped the fight. Mora, simply put, was too injured to carry on.
"From my perspective I heard my knee pop," Mora said after the bout. "I know what a broken ankle is."
Due to the bout's highly unique ending, Mora said he wanted a rematch. Jacobs, however, wasn't having any of it.
"No rematch," Jacobs said. "There's no reason for me to come backwards now."
