The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada will be bubbling with anticipation on Saturday night ahead of boxing’s biggest bout so far in 2019. WBA and WBC middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez will put his belts on the line when he takes on IBF champion Daniel Jacobs in a unification fight on Cinco de Mayo weekend.
Alvarez (51-1-2, 35 KOs) will be facing a formidable test in Jacobs (35-2, 29 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. The two were so amped up for Saturday’s action that they nearly got into on Friday during the staredown after the weigh-in ceremony.
What some people have grown to call boxing’s Super Bowl weekend has arrived. Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez returns to the ring for his traditional Cinco de Mayo weekend fight when he battles IBF champion Daniel Jacobs in a middleweight unification bout from Las Vegas, Nevada.
Alvarez is coming off his debut victory with DAZN in November where he scored a decisive third-round TKO over Rocky Fielding at Madison Square Garden. Jacobs, meanwhile, scored a split decision win over Serhiy Derevianchenko (a former training partner) in October. The two fighters seem amped up and ready to go based on how Friday’s weigh in went with the two going nose-to-nose before a shoving match ensued.
With so much going on this week around the card, we at CBS Sports aim to keep you as updated as possible with complete coverage from Las Vegas. Below is everything you need to get ready for Saturday night’s showdown from Las Vegas.
How to watch ‘Canelo Alvarez vs Daniel Jacobs’ live stream online tonight
One of the best boxing matches of the year will unfold later tonight (Sat., May 4, 2019) live on DAZN from inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, as WBC and WBA middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez (51-1-2, 35 KOs) locks horns with IBF middleweight king Daniel Jacobs (35-2, 29 KOs) in a main event title unification bout.
This is a huge middleweight meeting to say the least. Canelo, who inked a monster deal with DAZN late last year, is coming off a vicious TKO finish over Rocky Fielding in his DAZN debut this past December and will look to win another major middleweight title later tonight in Sin City.
Jacobs, on the other hand, is coming off a decision win over Serhiy Derevianchenko last October to claim the IBF middleweight strap and will try to lock down his biggest career victory with an upset of Canelo. Remember, Jacobs came up short against pound-for-pound standout Gennady Golovkin back in 2017 in what remains “Miracle Man’s” lone loss since 2010.
