Daniel Jacobs and Shane Mosley Jr. have agreed to a deal for a 10-round super middleweight fight on the Nate Diaz-Jorge Masvidal undercard July 6 in Anaheim, California, sources told ESPN.

The fight will serve as the Fanmio PPV co-main to the boxing match between former UFC stars.

Jacobs (37-4, 30 KOs) is a former middleweight champion who had a rare form of bone cancer during his boxing career. The 37-year-old Brooklynite last fought in February 2022, when he suffered a split decision loss to John Ryder.

Two of Jacobs’ defeats came on the elite level: a tight-decision loss to Gennadiy Golovkin in 2017 and a decision defeat to Canelo Alvarez two years later.

Shane Mosley Jr., the son of Hall of Fame boxer “Sugar” Shane Mosley, is a 33-year-old who has scored four consecutive wins. Mosley (21-4, 12 KOs) was last defeated in May 2021, a majority decision to Jason Quigley.

Masvidal defeated Diaz at UFC 244 in November 2019 via TKO. Now they will meet in a boxing ring over 10 rounds at 175 pounds.
