Daniel Jacobs has promised a new-and-improved version of himself as he weighed in to face unbeaten contender Luis Arias in New York on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports Main Event.
Jacobs hit the scales inside the middleweight limit at 159.6lbs at Friday's weigh-in, with Arias right on the division's cut-off at 160lbs.
Saturday's fight is Jacobs' first since losing a close decision to unified middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin in March, and the 30-year old is confident of a dominant display.
"I want to make sure I give the fans a good fight," Jacobs told Sky Sports. "I want to make sure I go in there and give my all because in a sense this is my coming out party.
"Like Eddie Hearn said, this is Daniel Jacobs 2.0 and I'm looking forward to capitalising on this opportunity.
"[Golovkin] was considered the boogeymen and one of the most feared guys and we neutralised him to a jab.
"I think with that experience knowing that I can do that with the guy they consider the pound-for-pound [champion], I know I'm of that calibre.
"If I apply all those experiences from my fights, especially the last one, then I think I'll be victorious."
America's latest heavyweight star Jarrell Miller weighed in ahead of his fight against Mariusz Wach, in what is a hugely-important clash for the division.
Miller tipped the scales at 283.4lbs, while Wach weighed a career-high 268lbs.
Also on Saturday's card is undefeated prospect Conor Benn who makes his US debut at welterweight against Brandon Sanudo.
Watch Daniel Jacobs vs Luis Arias, live from the Nassau Coliseum, New York, from 2.30am, Sunday, on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Action. We will also be showing Conor Benn's US debut in full.
