Coach Basheer Abdullah:
Just finishing up camp with my welterweight, Jacob. Preparing for his second professional fight. Very excited to have him back at camp and looking forward to this fight.

I remember when Jacob came to me a few years back asking me to coach him. I truly wasn’t interested because he didn’t have enough boxing experience to make me interested in him. It was funny because he’s a very persistent guy and he was determined to prove me wrong.

After a few sparing sections, I realized, “Whoa, I think this kid has something I can work with,” And from that moment on I brought him on to the team and we just took off.

He absorbed the information quickly and he applied. He’s such a joy to work with. He had the pleasure to spar with two of the best fighters in the world. Turns Crawford and Earl Spence, nothing but great reviews when Jacob attended training camp with those guys and provided sparing for them. So his future is very promising.
