What Happened to Danny Jacobs?

A couple of years ago they were talking about this dude like he was going to be the next big thing in boxing, and to be fair, he’s very impressive. Fantastic amateur, great skills, great hand-speed and solid power much to Teddy’s surprise who had to eat his words.

Then Dmitry Pirog can out of nowhere and caused an upset victory. Now, there isn’t a peep about him in the boxing world, and as far as I can tell, Pirog fucked off back to Russia with his title and hasn’t fought abroad since?

2 years seems like a rather long stretch to hear nothing about a solid prospect.
