Canelo Views He & Jacobs As Best At 160

Canelo Alvarez believes that he and Daniel Jacobs, not Gennady Golovkin, are the two best middleweight fighters in the world.

On May 4th, Alvarez looks to add  Jacobs’ IBF 160-pound title with his WBC and WBA middleweight titles when they face off at the T-Mobile Arena.

“We are the two best fighters at 160 pounds and that’s the truth. He is a world champion, he is a great fighter and making the fights between the best against the best is my goal,” Canelo said to members of the press.

“He is a difficult opponent to see his weaknesses because he is a complete fighter, who thinks in the ring, who knows how to handle the ring, has two guards, but obviously we are going to cover all of our bases,” explained Canelo of the New York native.

“Eddy [Reynoso] knows what we’re going to do and I just have to obey his orders and if I have to improvise then I’ll improvise.”
