Canelo vs Jacobs Promo
Here is the DummySport’s promo video for the fight.
The 28-year-old Mexican Canelo Alvarez has faced 54 fights in total and has won 51 fights (51-1-2, 35 KOs). He is returning to the middleweight division after heading up a class to defeat Rocky Fielding for his super middleweight WBA title. He is definitely one of the world’s best pound-for-pound fighter but at present, he stands to lose his WBA and WBC middleweight titles.
Daniel Jacobs, of New York City, aged 32 has fought 37 fights (35-2, 29 KOs) has put his IBF title belt at stake. Jacob is an extremely skilled fighter who went on to win the vacant strap against Serhiy Derevianchenko in 2018, taking the fight by split-decision. Though Canelo stands as the obvious favorites to end the fight victorious, the fight cannot be easily won looking at Jacobs’ combination of power, speed, and athleticism.
