Canelo v Jacobs


With Cinco de Mayo weekend fast approaching it can only mean one thing, a Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez superfight . This time he is taking on the current I.B.F World Middleweight Champion Daniel 'The Miracle Man' Jacobs in what should be a great fight.

Both these fighters can box and both have a punch but with Jacobs having a 3 inch height and reach advantage I think he will be the one doing the boxing with Canelo trying to force the action focusing his attack on Jacobs' mid-section in an attempt to slow him down. I don't think jacobs has much of a chance to stop canelo since the big punching Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin couldn't put Canelo down in either of their fights but he did drop Jacobs in the 4th round of their fight.

In my opinion the most likely outcome is a Canelo win by close (possibly controversial) decision with Jacobs winning the early rounds and canelo coming good in the championship rounds.

Canelo by decision is 5/6 @Betfair
