TMT is throwing Jack right back in there tough following the one round KO loss earlier this year on Showtime. They must want to find out now if that was a fluke and if there man can in deed fight. We will find out. Escalera just sprung an upset on ESPN and is coming in confident. He is a veteran with skills and knows how to fight. Personally, I question Jack's mind set entering this fight and think Escalera will ask some more tough questions of him inside the ring. I see Jack trying to start fast and then getting discouraged if he can't get Escalera out of there or discouraged himself. I think Escalera will take over the fight in the early to mid rounds and Jack getting stopped once again for the 2nd straight time. TMT is not messing around with him at all.
