"The fight for the throne in the middle weight"

Boxing



On May 5, the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas will host a fight between the World Middleweight Champion, WBA and WBC, Mexican Saul Alvarez and US IBF belt winner Daniel Jacobs. The correspondent of Prosports.kz presents a preview of one of the most anticipated battles of the year. The upcoming fight with Jacobs will be the second on the DAZN platform for Alvarez. With this company, the Mexican boxer 2018 signed a record deal. In his opinion, Alvarez earns on average over 40 million dollars per fight. His debut fight on the streaming station DAZN Kanelo was successful when he retired in the second middleweight Briton Rocky Fielding. Now he is independent of weight classes among the top three boxers, behind only the American Terence Crawford and the Ukrainian Vasily Lomachenko. Kanelo has already settled on the average weight, for him, this distribution is the most comfortable. After defeating Kazakhstan Gennady Golovkin in the second battle, the Mexican was called the new king of medium weight. But this weekend he is waiting for a real exam in the face of the American Daniel Jacobs. Wonder Man is considered one of the leaders of the middle division. In addition, he has the IBF championship belt which he won in the fight with the Ukrainian Sergey Derevyanchenko. Both boxers have a common contender – Gennady Golovkin. Both Kanelo and Jacobs showed decent boxing in a fight with the then middleweights. When Danny skillfully used his dimensions, Alvarez Golovkin forced for the first time in a long time to resign. All this indicates that the average division is burning now. In addition to Jacobs and Alvarez there is another dangerous boy – Demetrius Andrade, the WBO world champion. Do not forget the Golovkin who is still dangerous to any opponent. For a long time there was not so much competition in the middle league, which only makes this weight class more interesting. In general, the list of the Mexican team is more impressive when you record the latest boxer fights. What is only a victory over Golovkin worth a second battle! You should also remember that Alvarez has risen to the top league and defeated WBA champion Brit Rockery Fielding. At Jacobs he had after the defeat of Gennady Golovkin three fights – with the American Luis Arias, the Pole Macey Suletsky and the Ukrainian Sergey Derevyanchenko. In all three fights Danny won the judges' decision. Especially difficult was the duel with Derevchenko, in which the American could win a split decision thanks to a knockdown. It's also worth noting that Jacobs will fight for the first time in Las Vegas, while for Alvarez, this city is at home. Previously, Daniel spent most of his bouts in his hometown of New York. Another interesting fact: All those faces (Dave Moretti, Glenn Fieldman, Steve Weisfeld), who were in Kanelo's quarrel with Golovkin, will be responsible for the judges' notes. Except for the main referee in the ring – this time it will be Tony Wicks. Saul Alvarez is rightly the favorite of the meeting. Bookmakers are confident that the fight will last until the late rounds. There is every reason for that, because both fighters can beat well. As Jacobs and Alvarez have shown in a battle with Gennady Golovkin. Once Daniel GGG had hit down once, Alvarez could not lie on the screen. Kanelo was never knocked out. Daniel Jacobs also lost to the Russian Dmitry Pirog nine years ago. But do not compare this Danny with the current – now there are two different fighters. After defeating Krebs, Daniel returned to the ring with a stronger boxer, confirming his victory over boxers like Sergio Mora, Peter Quillin and Sergey Derevyanchenko. If we talk about Danny's chances of winning in the upcoming fight, then they are not bad. For this, Jacobs must use its advantage in anthropometry effectively. Daniel has to constantly press Alvarez and try to "drop" the opponent. Otherwise nobody will win him, especially in Las Vegas. In this regard, the odds are even higher for the Mexican boxer, who keeps his punches well and can attack vigorously. Besides, Alvarez has the experience of meeting the boxers: Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr., Rocky Fielding … They were all taller than him, but what Kanelo did to them is probably remembered by many. On the other hand, Daniel Jacobs is much more technical than the aforementioned opponents of Alvarez. Plus battles in the domestic middleweight. Danny does not hide that he will try to take advantage of the benefits of "physics". If he succeeds or not, the question is different. In any case, an uncompromising and exciting fight awaits us, in which we may not see a knockout win but can enjoy the fight between two top middleweights. The winner of the battle will be a step closer to the title of absolute world champion. The fact that Gennady Golovkin did not. Maybe it will be possible if the GGG team manages to organize a fight with the winner of this pair. And in the event of a victory, you will receive the unsuccessful WBO belt now owned by Demetrius Andrade. What do boxers say? According to Kanelo, the size of Jacobs will not be a problem for him: "We are just ready for the Saturday fight. I am ready to write my name further into the story, as I have always done. I fought against every style. No matter what he does on Saturday, it will be reasonable resistance for me. Everything can happen in boxing, including retirement. If there is an opportunity, I believe I will succeed. I do not care if it's bigger or stronger than me, it never bothered me. I have the ability and experience to overcome this and more. "At the same time, Daniel hopes that he can crush Saul Alvarez with his power:" This is a chance of my life and I am very happy to show the world that I am the best average weight of my generation. My conversation will be in the ring and I'll let my speakers speak for themselves. Kanelo, let's do a good show, my brother. I can win, just to be the best version of me. My physical advantages may bring me victory, but I also have psychological skills. I'm the only boxer in my prime, who has met Kanelo since fighting Floyd Mayweather. I am full of confidence in myself and my abilities. "Remember that the match between Saul Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs will be held on May 5 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. At stake are WBC, WBA, IBF and The Ring at middleweight. ,
