If Hearn gets his manner, Jacobs is likely to likely soon be confronting the 28-year-old Canelo at the first week of May on DAZN. Hearn says Canelo-Jacobs could be the second most useful fight which may be made in the middle weight division, and that DAZN specifically wants this particular fight. There are so few appealing possibilities for Canelo in 160, which you may argue is just the reason why Golden Boy Promotions are currently taking a look at fighters out of the 168 lb division for him to fight. Jermall Charlo, Jacobs, Rob Brant along with Demetrius Andrade aren’t even popular fighters for Canelo to get boxing fans excited about him fighting with any of them.
If Canelo and golden-boy elect to proceed in another way for the might 4th date, you’d assume it would be some one that’s just a bigger name than Jacobs. Canelo fighting David Lemieux at super middleweight was rumored to become the Mexican celebrity ’s next fight for his fight on Cinco de Mayo on May 4th, however it’s unclear what the reaction would be from accidental boxing fans in that kind of a fight. There won’t even be much shock-value for a Canelo vs. Lemieux fight.
Hearn is chomping at the bit, eager and prepared to start putting a deal together with Golden Boy Promotions to your Canelo-Jacobs fight.
Hearn says Jacobs is likely to be Canelo’s opponent for 2019 followed by a trilogy fight Gennady Golovkin to the Mexican celebrity in September.
If Alvarez loses that fight, he then or even rsquo;ll be back in the ring together with Jacobs for another bout in September. This would be an ideal position for Hearn, because he needs Jacobs to be at Canelo to put in a big money re match. There’s little chance that Canelo would walk off from a loss to the 31-year-old Jacobs without attempting to avenge it.
This ’s giant 100,000 seat arena that Golden Boy Promotions president Eric Gomez has spoken of wanting to place Canelo vs. Callum Smith. Though Hearn promote Smith, he wants Jacobs are the guy that confronts Canelo. You can assert the reason for this is he’s more likely willing for him to take a loss to Canelo than he could be in having Smith reduced to rubble like Rocky Fielding was at his awkward 4th round knockout loss on December 15 th. Hearn could ’t even have Callum vulnerable like Fielding has been, due to his ’s attempting to turn him into a superstar in the UK. Smith is young at 28, and has a long career ahead of him. By comparison, Jacobs is about to turn 32 in February, along with also his performances against Sergiy Derevyanchenko, Maciej Sulecki and Luis Arias imply he’SON the decline.
“Probably not,” Hearn said a week asked if Canelo would accept fight Callum Smith at the UK. “he ’s [Canelo] going to fight might the 4th at vegas, and I believe it’s going to be Danny Jacobs. I think thatrsquo;s the best fight in the middle weight division. Danny Jacobs is the IBF world champion. This ’s the one we’ll be attempting to create happen on May the 4th. I really believe DAZN wants the fight, and I think in the next week we’ll start negotiations.
Canelo vs. Jacobs is the bigger fight for U.S boxing fan than a Canelo-Smith fight. You have to wonder whether DAZN would overly pleased should Canelo chooses to manage yet another fighter from England in his second fight on his or her platform. There’s nothing wrong using Canelo fighting guys from the UK. The one thing that might be a negative about that is DAZN’s subscribers might not increase to any wonderful extent if Canelo confronts British fighter Callum Smith, who the American boxing fans aren’t even as familiar with since they truly are Daniel Jacobs. Both ’3″ Callum Smith be much bigger threat to Canelo compared to Jacobs, also it would mean more regarding achievement in the event the Mexican superstar were to be at him. Smith is undefeated, and is coming off of a hit victory over George Groves in the Planet Boxing Super Series championship. Jacobs was defeated only a year by Golovkin, and now he ’s perhaps maybe not looked specially sharp since then.
“I think of DAZN’so perspective, DAZN would want Canelo-Jacobs, and Canelo-Golovkin. Theyrsquo;re the two fights,” Hearn said in once again continuing with his campaign to drum up interest at a fight between Canelo along with Jacobs.
The issue is there isn’s even a great deal of curiosity about Canelo fighting anybody from the middle weight division besides Golovin, and also that’s gone down after the controversy surrounding the scoring of their two vegas based battles in the t mobile Arena. Now, Jacobs is arguably the very interesting opponent for Canelo supporting g gg, along with De La Hoya isn’will put those two together for May 4. He wants some one else for Canelo to fight. The shock value in a fight between Canelo and Jacobs in’will be enough to bring about boxing fans to want to join forces to DAZN in enormous amounts on the 4th of May. It’therefore planning to take some one that the masses will get thrilled about. It’s too awful Floyd Mayweather is interested in fighting MMA men, but since he’d be perfect to get Canelo to fight.
Canelo’s WBC compulsory Jermall Charlo are a good option or even to his horrible performance last Saturday night at winning a controversial decision over Matt Korobov. This wouldn’t be a very good time for Canelo to fight the 28-year-old Charlo after how he appeared contrary to the Russian southpaw Korobov. If Canelo were to agree to fight Charlo today, it would look like the only reason he picked him is because of the manner he was exposed by the 35-year-old Korobov, who shot the fight on a single week’so note. It’d be safer for Canelo to fight some one that’s about the rise, looking good, and preferably with an unbeaten record.
Golden Boy will have to consider beyond the box if they want to make huge headlines for Canelo’s next fight on May 4. Jacobs is too safe of a choice to have the boxing fans excited about this fight. He’s star, even in his hometown of New York, and there’s no ‘wow’ factor with him. Jacobs is only a very simple fighter that has lost every time he’s turned up against elite resistance. Golden Boy has got to consider somebody else which may get the casual fans excited about Canelo’s next fight. The means to accomplish that’s to have a take a look at the 154, 168 and 175 pound weight classes for a possible name that will get the fans eager to subscribe to DAZN to see Canelo.
Here are the ideal options for Canelo’s May 4th fight:
— Jarrett Hurd
— Callum Smith
— Rob Brant
— George Groves
— Carl Froch: He’s retired, but he’d still be an interesting opponent for Canelo to fight.
— Andre Ward: That really is just another guy that’s currently retired. It’been over a year as Ward continue fought, but he still be an excellent option for Canelo to fight if the point is to produce interest, and push subscribers to DAZN.
He’s among those guys that have a fantastic engine, who is capable of hitting hard for 1-2 rounds without losing such a thing on his own shots. The left side of Canelo’s face was puffing up after only 1 round against Rocky Fielding. If Benavidez is given the opportunity to land his even shots Canelo for a 12 round battle, then he can induce a stoppage.
Bivol will probably be inclined to maneuver right down to 168 to fight Canelo, also it would be an interesting fight. Bivol is regarded as the future superstar at 175, and now he ’s undefeated. If Canelo were to fight Bivol, it would attract a good deal of attention from the boxing universe.
— Artur Beterbiev: That really is just another lightheavyweight that would be an ideal opponent for Canelo to fight to attract interest.
