Canelo Alvarez is to face down Daniel Jacobs Saturday, May 4 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. This is Canelo’s fifth time in his boxing career fighting at T-Mobile Arena, and this is Jacob’s second fight since July 2010.

The 28-year-old Alvarez is unbeaten in his last five times since fighting Floyd Mayweather Jr. in September 2013. He has a record of  (51-1-2, 35 of the wins KOs). Meanwhile, Jacobs has (35-2, 29 KOs), while he rebounded in his big loss against Gennady Golovkin in March 2017 for the WBA title.

Canelo commented in the press conference “I’ve always liked challenges, and this is not an exception. We know what Daniel Jacobs brings: his ability, his qualities, his talent. He knows how to move well in the ring. We’ll do what we always do to prepare ourselves to the fullest and to give the fans a great fight. This is not going to be an exception and we’re going to come out with our hands raised.”

Jacobs also had some words for the conference, “Much respect to Golden Boy and Canelo for accepting this fight. You’re a true champion and stepping in with another champion says a lot. I tip my hat off to you but I’m looking for a tremendous fight for the fans. Obviously, my legacy is on the line. His legacy is already well-established so, for me, it’s about capturing all the titles and solidifying my legacy for my own right.”

Abdirahman Hassan a Lotus student commented, “I got Canelo because he is faster and more agile and Jacobs will crack under pressure.”
