Hearn: Jacobs Will Beat Canelo
Just over a month from the biggest fight in his career, IBF middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs, is ready for his middleweight unification fight against Canelo Alvarez..
“This is the opportunity I’ve been waiting for,” Jacobs told reporters. “The opportunity to achieve greatness within the ring. It’s been an excellent training camp, I’m sure I can beat Canelo to establish myself as the best middleweight in the world.”
Jacobs isn’t alone in thinking he will pull the upset on May 4th at the T-Mobile Arena, his promoter Eddie Hearn thinks it is his client’s moment.
“I believe so. Canelo has got the power of the sport behind him if you like. You know, but Daniel Jacobs, now this is his moment and he really believes he’s going to win; we believe he’s going to win,” Hearn told Sporting News.
“I think it’s going to be a brilliant fight. Yeah, unification fight in the middleweight division. I think there is a lot of support for Daniel Jacobs, obviously Canelo has a huge fan base as well, but we really believe that Daniel Jacobs can win the fight on May 4.”
