Jim Jacobs was
one of the finest athletes of his generation and one of the greatest handball
champions in the history of the sport.
In a 1966 article on Jimmy titled "Really the Greatest," Sports
Illustrated observed, "Jacobs might be the greatest athlete of his
time in any sport."
Cus D'Amato, the famed boxing manager and long-time Jacobs's
friend, believed only Joe Louis and Sugar Ray Robinson carried the same aura
of a champion that Jacobs possessed.
Jim Jacobs lived a full, multifaceted life before succumbing to Leukemia
in 1988. His positive attitude prervailed throughout his life as a world-class athlete, boxing historian, fight film collector, fight manager and successful businessman.
