Canelo-Jacobs Coming To Vegas

The middleweight unification fight between Canelo Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs has found a home, as the two will square off on May 4th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“I’m excited to return to T-Mobile Arena for a fifth time,” said Alvarez, who last fought in Vegas this past September against Gennady Golovkin.
“I inaugurated this arena to boxing at an international level, and it’s a place where I have had some of my biggest fights. This fight against Daniel Jacobs will not be the exception. I am ready to capture another world title in front of a packed house, listening to the unconditional support of the fans in attendance, and also for those who will watch this fight through the screens of a huge platform in DAZN. I want it so when people talk about T-Mobile Arena, they say that is where Canelo Alvarez fights.”

Jacobs will be fighting in Vegas for the first time since 2010, and is excited for the opportunity. “I’m thrilled that this huge night has landed in Las Vegas,” the current IBF middleweight champion.

“Scheduling the biggest fight of my career at T-Mobile Arena is the perfect occasion to return to the bright lights and shine on a massive stage. Canelo is a champion and he’s fought the best so it’s an honor for me to face him, and of course it’s a brilliant fight for the fans. But my legacy is on the line and I have a lot to gain – I want to be a hall of famer one day, and this is the sort of fight that will get me there.”

“On May 4, we expect a full house of fans from all over the world to watch Canelo capture another world title with a great victory over Daniel Jacobs in a mega-fight,” said Alvarez’ promoter Oscar De La Hoya.
We know that Canelo’s fights there on Cinco De Mayo weekend are always special, and with the size of this fight, this could be the biggest yet,” said Jacobs’ promoter Eddie Alvarez.
“Daniel has been on an impressive run since signing with Matchroom Boxing USA, and has risen to the occasion, taken three unbeaten records in his last three fights and regained his world champion status. May 4 is such a huge night for Daniel, Matchroom Boxing USA, DAZN and Sky Sports – and I believe that Daniel will unify the titles under the bright lights of Vegas and his remarkable story will have yet another incredible chapter.”
