Canelo-Jacobs Second-Day Weigh-Ins Confidential

The second-day weigh-in results from Canelo Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs will not be made available to the public due to a confidentiality agreement between both sides.

The agreement doesn’t necessarily mean that either fighter came in over a second-day cap of 170 pounds, or 10 pounds above the middleweight limit. A low six-figure sum per pound is believed to be the penalty for either man going over the 170-pound mark.

A second-day weigh-in isn’t required by the IBF due to this bout being a title unification bout; however, Alvarez’s team demanded a second-day weigh in because of Jacobs’ size advantage. Even though Alvarez last competed at super middleweight, Jacobs stands four inches taller than him.

Jacobs didn’t participate in a second-day weigh-in when he fought Gennadiy Golovkin back in March 2017, and GGG and his team accused Jacobs of doing it to get a size advantage.

Jacobs says the situation with GGG was overblown, and he intends to come into the May 4 unification fight at 174 or 175 pounds as he normally does when he fights.
