The boxing world has been fascinating because there will be a big fight happening in the future. The upcoming bout will involve Canelo Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs in the middleweight unification fight.
The upcoming fight will happen on May 4th, but it has never been too early to discuss what’s going on before the actual event happen. Jacobs will take on Alvarez who is holding the WBC and WBA belts. Meanwhile, Jacobs became the IBF champion in October.
Canelo confirmed the bout and stated that he would fight fellow middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs on May 4th, 2019. Alvarez has added the world title to his collection back then in December. The great fighter with the 51-1-2 record will return to the 160-pound division to defend his title of WBA, WBC, The Ring and middleweight titles against Jacob. Canelo vs. Daniel will be one of the best spectacles ever since the prestigious titles are put on the line.
Back then on December 15, 2018, Canelo won the WBA world super middleweight after knocking Rocky Fielding out in the third round. The prestigious event happened at Madison Square Garden in New York, N.Y. With the latest winning, he has become the ninth Mexican boxer who holds the world titles in the three divisions simultaneously.
What a quite achievement. Jacobs is the former middleweight champion after he lost to GGG on unanimous-decision scores at Madison Square Garden on March 2017. But he managed to win the title back in the rematch on September 2018. The upcoming fight that will happen on May 4 will be the title fight that you can’t afford to miss.
