When rumours Carl Frampton and Leo Santa Cruz was finally made they came hand in hand with suggestions Andy Lee would challenge Danny Jacobs on the same card.
It made sense considering the fact the fight would take place in New York. Former WBO middleweight is no stranger to the big apple, big American TV fights and is know by American fight fans.
However, when conformation Frampton would actually move up to featherweight to challenge for Santa Cruz’s WBA title in New York on July 30 arrived it arrived without Lee v Jacobs news.
Irish fight fans held out hope and sat fingers crossed that the former WBO World champ would be afforded the chance to regain World champion status, but the Limerick middle claims there has been no offer from Team Jacobs.
A lot of rumours flying around, just to let you know, as of yet, there’s been no offer to fight Danny Jacobs July 30th.
