Daniel Jacobs Next Fight

His next fight is with Canelo Alvarez, a Mexican professional boxer. The event will be held at the T-Mobile Arena, Paradise, Nevada, U.S. on May 4, 2019. In this match, he will be defending the IBF middleweight title.

Daniel Jacobs Cancer

Back in May 2011, he was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive cancer in the form of a tumor, called Osteosarcoma and he was told that he would never fight again as the tumor damaged his nerves and caused paralysis in his legs and that the risks of injury were too high. He underwent a six hour operation to remove the tumor and he got through it okay.

He went to the gym a week after he got out of the hospital and it didn’t take long for him to realize his expectations of getting better quickly were unrealistic. He painfully discovered what 25 counts of radiation could do to a body as his nervous system had been damaged from the tumor and the paralysis, the operation and radiation. He gave himself a couple of months and told himself that he would not get in the ring unless he was 100% okay.

Almost a year later, on October 20, 2012, he came back to the ring and became the first survivor to win the world championship, over Josh Luteran.

Daniel Jacobs Interview

12 Rounds With … Daniel Jacobs

Source: premierboxingchampions.com

How did you neutralize Golovkin’s power?

We used my full arsenal, limiting Golovkin’s effectiveness to a jab. We controlled an offensive onslaught guy, neutralizing him into using that single punch.

My speed, distance, athleticism and power countered a one-dimensional Triple-G, and we’re really not used to seeing him reduced to one tool.

What happened on the knockdown, and how hurt were you?

When Triple-G knocked guys down in previous fights, they’d weaken, showing they were hurt and wanting to avoid further punishment at all costs. But I was definitely not hurt.

There was contact, but I wasn’t hurt. I was in transition, switching from orthodox to southpaw or vice versa when the punch landed. My left foot swung around, my heel hit the ground and that forced me backward.

After rising for the eight-count, I went directly at Triple-G, egging him on to fight. That’s not the body language of someone who is hurt or [legitimately] knocked down. It happened, and I understand why it happened. I made a mistake.

So your “suspect chin” survived, and you feel you won in addition to ending Golovkin’s run of 23-consecutive knockouts?

[Laughs] That was the bigger question. Golovkin had been knocking everyone out for the last [nine] years, right? I’m the underdog going in with a suspect chin who’s going to get knocked out. If I had a suspect chin, wouldn’t I have been exposed?

But I took all those punches from the boogey man. My mentality after the knockdown, knowing it was going to be a 10-8 round, was to skip the game plan.

I stopped preserving my energy by continuing to box, move and finesse as I had been.

My nature is, instinctively, to bang, toe-to-toe. When he engaged, I wanted to bang, figuring I’d land a shot. That wasn’t initially the game plan due to the risk involved, but I was trying to hurt him, letting him know I could do that.

Golovkin was projected to be pound-for-pound one of the best knockout artists, if not fighters, so what I did against him in that fourth round and on that night speaks volumes.

What did you see in Golovkin’s eyes after the fight, and what happens in a rematch?

Looking into Triple-G’s eyes afterward, I saw a defeated man. In his mind, body, heart and soul was a lack of confidence, doubting which way the decision would go, not knowing what the outcome would be. I was confident in my accomplishment.

As he went back to the corner [after the 11th,] his trainer, Abel Sanchez, was saying, “You gave that round away,” or, “You slipped in that last round and you’ve gotta do better the next round.”

Even with the knockdown, I thought I’d won until right before the decision was announced. The fact that they made excuses, saying I weighed as much as a light heavyweight, is a huge pat on my back and a compliment.

What do you feel the judges missed and what adjustments would you make in a rematch?

I really feel that I executed the game plan and gave myself a two-round edge in the scoring, but it comes down to how the judges scored the rounds. Golovkin was known as the power-puncher, and they like aggressive fighters.

That opposes the actual essence of boxing, which I try to do, and that’s to hit and not get hit. But it says a lot that I out-landed him [144-126] in power shots. I came in as the better boxer, but I take my hat off to Golovkin for landing more jabs [105-to-31.]

At worst, it should have been a draw. It’s sad when you put your heart and soul into a fight and realize you’re being judged from a completely different standpoint than you thought. That was a 50-50 fight, and I win the rematch, 100 percent.

I know how to fight this guy, now, with no hesitancy because I’ve already experienced his best, and I’m still learning at 30 years old. But he’s an older guy, and it’s tough to teach an old dog new tricks.

It’s hard to knock out Triple-G, but we already know I have the speed advantage. I need to be more aggressive from the start. If I apply a little more aggression, stand my ground and keep his jab accuracy to a minimum, I win a decision.

How did you score Golovkin-Alvarez?

I had Triple-G winning by three rounds, and I think Triple-G wins the rematch more convincingly. But I could care less how the second fight goes. I just want the winner.

In the meantime, I’d fight any top middleweight who would accept the fight. But they know I’m a threat, perhaps too much risk versus the reward.

I’m not waiting around needing these guys to define me. I have to move, creating my legacy. Inevitably, opportunities will come.

How do you feel about facing Arias in Uniondale rather than at Barclays in Brooklyn, his trash talking, and what’s your prediction?

It’s not far from Brooklyn. I fully expect my friends, family and fans to come to see me. I’ve been in Arias’ position before. I have a level of confidence being the prey for Arias whereas before, I was the hunter.

I possess a skill-set, physique and mentality Arias never has experienced, but with him trash talking, in my mind, as I train, I wanna really hurt this guy. He talks a good game, but what he says about me is fake news. I’ve been in with the best.

I’ll win in convincing fashion, likely by a late knockout. But my motivation is from having a second opportunity at life, stepping into the ring again. My following’s grown. Fans love good guys with a good story that connects.

Canelo vs. Jacobs is 50-50 fight says Hunter

Source: boxingnews24.com

Saul Canelo Alvarez vs. Danny Jacobs is a 50-50 fight due to the 10 pound rehydration clause in the contract, according to trainer Virgil Hunter. He believes that the bigger, stronger and older fighter 31-year-old Jacobs (35-2, 29 KOs) will be impacted negatively more so than the 28-year-old Canelo from the 10 pound rehydration limit that Golden Boy Promotions put in the contract.

The rehydration clause in effect give Canelo a handicap in the fight, which is kind of strange that he would need one. Canelo is supposed to be the WBA/WBC middleweight champion, and he’s a full fledged 160 lb fighter at this point. This isn’t a situation where Canelo is fighting a super middleweight that he needs a rehydration clause. Adding the clause in the contract suggests that Canelo – or his promoters at Golden Boy Promotions – feel that they a handicap in order to beat Jacobs. On the surface, it doesn’t look very heroic for a fighter that supposedly is the best in the middleweight division needs a handicap against his opponent, who holds only one belt, the IBF strap, rather than two.

The two fighters will need to weigh-in twice for the fight. The first weigh-in will take place on Friday, May 3, and then second on the morning of the fight on May 4 for their match on DAZN at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Their weight can’t be above 170 lbs for the secondary weigh-in without facing a large fine.
