so because 6 of the last 9 POTY lost in the next after receiving the award, means there is a curse?

Rafael indicated in his scorecard today that Daniel Jacobs is probably in the driver seat for 2009 Prospect of the Year. He'll be stepping the competition up before the end of this year, so we'll get to see if the curse continues.

I don't think you can count Taylor, Cotto, or Berto as misses, either. Amir Khan could very well come back to be very good, too.

It's hard to predict this sort of thing, so I tend to give a little leeway to ol' Rafael here. But I'm with Brickhaus on his scoring, good God!

Dan Rafael makes this list. Dan Rafael and Teddy Atlas both works on ESPN so i think it' Teddies influence.

Daniel Jacobs is much better than Ortiz based on his movement alone, but at the same time, the question is whether or not he can box...

Rafael does print, Atlas does live TV. I doubt they ever see each other, and he's never indicated that he's buddies with Atlas.

Considering his talent and his accomplishments within the year, unless something crazy happens, Jacobs is a no-brainer for prospect of the year, and I suspect he'll be everyone's prospect of the year other than a few foreign journalists and some people who name someone else just to be contrarian. None of the other candidates (Fury, Korobov, DeMarco, Alvarez, Lara) stack up to both his resume within the year and talent level.

Will the curse strike down again by the hands of the talented Dmitri Pirog to end Danny Jacobs' prospect run?

Pirog has a really good chance to beat him. In fact I may even favour him here.

Let's see the list!

Prospect of the Year in 2000: Julio Diaz
- upset by Angel Manfredy in 2001

Prospect of the Year in 2001: Francisco Bojado

- upset by Juan Carlos Rubio in 2002

Prospect of the Year in 2008: Victor Ortiz

- upset by Marcos Maidana in 2009

and:

Prospect of the Year in 2009: Danny Jacobs!
- upset in 2010?
