1. Who is Daniel Jacobs? He’s a professional boxer. 

Daniel Jacobs is a successful American boxer and a two-time middleweight world champion. In August of 2018, he was ranked as the third best middleweight boxer in the world, which is a seriously impressive title to hold. 

One scroll through Daniel Jacobs’ Instagram will show you how much love he has for the sport. He often does meet-and-greets with fans, and has an incredibly humble attitude when it comes to meeting his biggest supporters.

“So much love from the land down under . I’m super grateful to have fans and supporters all over the world,” he wrote in an Instagram caption on February 7. “Thanks to my great friend Lincoln for hosting a meet and greet in his incredible facility where we was [sic] able to connect with the youth and inspiring boxers.”

2. Daniel Jacobs is a cancer survivor.

In 2011, Daniel’s career was put on hold after he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. After taking nearly two years off of boxing, the 33-year-old boxing champ made a full recovery. He knows how hard going through a life-altering diagnosis is, so Daniel often makes appearances at hospitals to inspire people — kids, particularly — who are going through the same thing.

“As a survivor I know how important moments like this can truly be,” he wrote in an Instagram caption accompanying pictures of his visit to a children’s hospital. “Thanks to everyone who made this possible I’m grateful to put a smile on these beautiful souls faces [heart emoji].”
