Brooklyn’s pride will be on full throttle as HBO Boxing launches an interactive training truck to celebrate the borough’s very own Golden Child, Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs as he comes home for a 12-round middleweight showdown against undefeated contender Maciej Sulecki on Saturday, April 28th at the Barclays Center. The HBO Boxing Training Truck will celebrate the hometown champion and encourage people to get in on the action!
HBO, along with Jacobs’ Get In The Ring, a foundation that supports children with cancer, will be kicking off events in Flatbush, where the HBO Boxing Training Truck will travel throughout Brooklyn for a week, making stops at boxing gyms where fans can test their skills to see how they measure up to professional fighters, influencers, and learn fight strategies from celebrity trainers. The HBO Boxing Training Truck will also offer free healthy snacks to combat obesity, boxing gear to encourage training, resources to end bullying, and the opportunity to give back to the community.
Daniel Jacobs vs. Maciej Sulecki is part of an explosive doubleheader that also features a 12-round heavyweight tilt between Brooklyn’s Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller and France’s Johann Duhaupas. The fight will air at 10:00 p.m. (live ET/tape-delayed PT), exclusively on HBO in HDTV, closed-captioned for the hearing-impaired and presented in Spanish on HBO Latino and will be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming platforms.
