CANELO vs JACOBS BETTING PREVIEW
Alvarez has a bit of difficulty with boxers who are mobile, such as JacobsSaul "Canelo" Alvarez (51-1-2, 35 KOs) clinched both belts with a majority decision over Gennady Golovkin last September. The first fight between the Mexican and GGG ended in a controversial draw. Canelo, who has only lost once in his career - against Floyd Mayweather Jr via majority decision - then dispatched Rocky Jacobs three months later via knockout. He made light work of the Brit, getting a third round stoppage after constant pressure and shots the body. That was the first finish for Alvarez since his 2016 knockout against Liam Smith. Prior to that the Mexican stopped another Brit, Amir Khan, in the sixth round of their contest.
Alvarez has above-average power and enters the fight with a current knockout ratio of 64 per cent with a granite chin. His natural power and phenomenal hand speed is likely to catch the eyes of the judges and can build a lead on the scorecards which will be hard to be overturned. Since he lost to Floyd Mayweather in 2013, Canelo has dramatically improved his boxing skills. His defense is much better and he’s become a master at dictating the fight’s tempo.
Jacobs has a good punch, though he doesn’t hit as hard as GolovkinDaniel Jacobs (35-2, 29 KOs) is considered one of the top pound-for-pound boxers in the world. He rebuilt his career after a devastating – and shocking – knockout defeat in five rounds by Russian Dmitry Pirog back in July 2010 and also fought for his life when he was diagnosed with cancer. He recorded KO victories over Caleb Truax, Sergio Mora and Peter Quillan and, despite being dropped in the 4th round, he became the first fighter to go the distance against Gennady Golovkin (a decision loss in 2016). Since then Jacobs has stripped three fighters of their unbeaten records. He beat Luis Arias and Maciej Sulecki, before to capure a split decision victory over Sergiy Derevyanchenko last time out. Each of his last four fights have ended in decisions
The American is almost six foot tall and he will have nearly a four-inch height advantage, as well as a three-inch reach advantage over his opponent. Furthermore, Jacobs is known to be a fighter who moves well - just like Mayweather - and is able to control the distance. Despite the lack of recent finishes, Jacobs packs some power in those hands and can land some nasty counters with a very lengthy jab. Coupled with his strong legs, he’s set up to box and move Alvarez from the outside. For Jacobs to win, he’ll have to continually pop that jab in Alvarez’s face and not allow him to get inside.
