Canelo: Jacobs Beat Golovkin By Two or Three Points!

By Miguel Rivera

Last month, Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez was a very interested party last month, when Gennady Golovkin defending his IBF, WBC, WBA, IBO middleweight titles against mandatory challenger Daniel Jacobs.

Before a packed crowd at New York's Madison Square Garden, Golovkin saw the end of the twelfth round for the first time in his long career. He won a very close twelve round unanimous decision with scores of 114-113, 115-112, 115-112.

The fight played out in a very unexpected manner. Jacobs, who suffered a knockdown during the fight, was able to absorb Golovkin's punches and boxed very well from round to round.

Jacobs believes he was robbed in the fight and did more than enough to win. There are some experts, some writers and some fighters who agree with him.

And Canelo is one of them. He scored the fight in favor of Jacobs.

"We already knew what was going to happen. For me, Jacobs won by two or three points, but this is our sport. The judges decided that [Golovkin is the winner] and [their decision] is respected,"Canelo told Eduard Cauich.

Canelo is back in the ring on May 6th, when he faces countryman Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. at a catch-weight of 164.5-pounds at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The outcome of Golovkin's last fight is certainly making Canelo and his handlers more confident of their own chances against GGG - if they face each other in the fall.

There are ongoing discussions for Canelo and Golovkin to face each other in September during Mexican Independence Day weekend. Canelo must first win next month and there is a possibility that Golovkin will fight again in June.

The biggest stumbling block when it comes to finalizing a deal between Canelo and Golovkin is their ability to reach an agreement on the financial terms.
