After a technical knockout victory over Rocky Fielding in December, Canelo Alvarez will face his next test in a match against Daniel Jacobs. Alvarez will be attempting to defend his WBA, WBC, The Ring and lineal middleweight titles while trying to win the IBF middleweight title.
Alvarez (51-1-2) has only lost one fight in his career – to Floyd Mayweather in 2013 – and is the heavy betting favorite against Jacobs. In addition, Alvarez has won four fights via knockout since 2015 and has registered a win and a draw against arch-rival Gennady Golovkin.
Despite Alvarez’s continued success, Jacobs is no slouch and shouldn’t be counted out. He has lost just two of 37 fights in his career, one of which came against Golovkin, ironically enough. Twenty-nine of Jacobs’ 35 wins have been knockouts.
The fight is the second in Alvarez’s exclusive five-year agreement with DAZN, then global live sports streaming platform. That means Canelo vs. Jacobs is not available on traditional pay-per-view via cable or satellite. Instead, fight fans will need to subscribe to DAZN and download the app in order to live stream the fight online.
Below is all the information you’ll need to watch the fight between Alvarez and Jacobs on May 4.
