Everything you need to know in order to watch the middleweight showdown on Saturday
Canelo Alvarez vs. Daniel Jacobs fight live stream, boxing start time, how to watch, channel
The tradition of Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez fighting on Cinco de Mayo weekend returns on Saturday night as the unified middleweight champion steps into the ring for the first time in 2019. At the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Alvarez will look to add to his collection of titles once again when he takes on IBF middleweight titleholder Daniel Jacobs.
Alvarez (51-1-2, 35 KOs), the WBA, WBC and lineal middleweight champion, will be facing a formidable test in Jacobs (35-2, 25 KOs) as he makes his second appearance under the DAZN banner since signing a blockbuster 10-fight, $365 million deal with the upstart streaming service last fall. Jacobs is no stranger to raising fans’ eyebrows as he showcases his skills against top competition as an underdog, as he’s the only fighter other than Alvarez to go the distance with ex-unified middleweight champ Gennady Golovkin.
An argument can be made that this showdown will serve to prove who the best middleweight boxer in the world truly is, with a Jacobs stunner on Cinco de Mayo weekend certainly a possibility.
