DAZN Hopes Canelo Picks Jacobs & GGG In 2019
Eddie Hearn said what most boxing fans were thinking prior to December 15th, that “Canelo is too good [for Rocky Fielding].”
Speaking on the harsh criticism he had for his own fighter, Hearn expanded his claim telling Boxing Scene: “You’re talking about a world class fighter against a pound for pound great. He’s too good. It was a great atmosphere and great promotion and I was happy to be a part of it, a sold out crowd. Hopefully we work together again with Golden Boy and DAZN in May for the Danny Jacobs fight.
“I think it’s the right fight,” Hearn said of Alvarez taking on his first U.S. signing in Jacobs. “DAZN wants the fight. The key would be the deal as always. That’s what we’ll be working on next week.”
“They’d like Canelo to fight Danny Jacobs then Golovkin next year. It’s up to Canelo. The biggest fight for Canelo outside the GGG fight is Danny Jacobs but it will be up to Canelo to see if he wants to take those fights. It’s a great fight. We also got Callum Smith. I don’t think Canelo stays at 168 but anything is possible.”
