Daniel Jacobs Confident: I See Myself Stopping Canelo!

By Radio Rahim

Former WBA 'regular' middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs (32-2, 29 KOs) was a very interested observer in the recent middleweight clash between Gennady Golovkin and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

Golvkin (37-0-1, 32 KOs) and Canelo (49-1-2, 34 KOs) ended in a controversial twelve round split draw at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Due to the outcome, Golovkin retained the WBA, WBC, IBF, IBO middleweight titles.

Canelo became only the second fighter to go the full twelve round distance with GGG.


But back in March, Jacobs also went the full twelve round distance with Golovkin at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Jacobs lost a very close twelve round unanimous decision and some felt he may have done enough to squeeze out a win.

Jacobs certainly felt his contest with Golovkin was much closer than Canelo's bout with GGG.

"Canelo didn't really show me anything that I didn't do first. And all credit to Canelo. I thought he went out there and fought his heart out, as best as he could, but I don't think he got the victory or even close to a draw. But, it's a totally different game in there. I'm a full fledged middleweight. My confidence is through the roof now," Jacobs said to

If Jacobs got in the ring with Canelo - provided the Mexican star is unable to finalize a rematch agreement with GGG - the Brooklyn native is confident in his ability to end Canelo inside the distance.

"[How would it end with me and Canelo], I say stoppage. I really feel that coming into who I've become... as a man, as an athlete, as a professional... I really feel that I can go in there and get the job done. What he brings to the table, and I'm not knocking anything, but size matters in boxing, physiques matter... it's different. I'm telling you its different and I do see myself stopping Canelo," Jacobs said.

It's a hell of a match up. Jacobs could give Canelo some stiff challenges due to his frame. I want to see Canelo and Golovkin run it back for their rematch first. But Jacobs is player #3 at the top…

Long, tall, fast hands, good boxer and faster feet. He could be a hard fight for Canelo.
