Jacobs Promises To Beat Canelo
IBF middleweight champion, Daniel Jacobs, has been calling for a fight against Canelo Alvarez for sometime, and now on May 4th, Jacobs gets his chance.
Jacobs won the title vacated by Gennady Golovkin in October against Serhiy Derevianchenko, and now looks to collect the other titles once held by GGG when he faces the unified middleweight champion, Alvarez, in a fight penciled in for Las Vegas.
“Let’s hope the judges are fair. I’m definitely one of the strongest opponents Canelo has faced. ‘GGG’ is not as fast as me. I am taller, I have more range, and I think I’ll win, I’ll use my best attributes, and I’ll win by decision or even by knockout,” Jacobs told Fighthype.com.
“I am a completely different athlete, I am multifaceted, I do not have to study what Golovkin did (against Canelo), it is not new for me to achieve the impossible, I won the opportunity and I am proud, my legacy is at stake.”
