Jacobs Thinks GGG Beat Canelo Twice
During Wednesday’s press conference at the Hard Rock in New York City, Daniel Jacobs admitted that it didn’t matter that he was the first fighter to go the distance with Gennady Golovkin.
And while he wanted a rematch and revenge on the then unified middleweight champion, Golovkin would fight Canelo Alvarez twice and Vanes Martirosyan once.
When asked about the Canelo-GGG rivalry, Jacobs feels that Alvarez didn’t earn a draw or a victory.
“In my honest opinion, I truly believe Golovkin won both fights,” Jacobs said to reporters Wednesday in Times Square.
“The second fight was a lot closer, and I take my hat off to Canelo for adjusting. But I still didn’t think that he won. I think, at the very least, it could’ve been a draw, the second fight. But in both fights, I picked Golovkin winning.”
Jacobs and Canelo will now square off on May 4th in a middleweight unification battle at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
