Daniel Jacobs: I'm Glad Canelo Got Caught, Tarnishes His Legacy

by Radio Rahim

Former middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs (33-2, 29 KOs) is just a few days away from making his in-ring debut for 2018.

This coming Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Jacobs will face undefeated Polish contender Maciej Sulecki (26-0, 10 KOs) in an HBO televised main event.

Jacobs was last in the ring back in November, when he dominated undefeated Luis Arias over twelve rounds of action.


One of the bigger stories in Jacobs' division, is the recent suspension of Mexican superstar Saul "Caenlo" Alvarez.

Canelo was scheduled to face IBF, IBO, WBA, WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) on May 5th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

But back in February, the boxer came up positive in two separate drug tests for the banned substance clenbuterol.

The Mexican star strongly maintains that he inadvertently ingested contaminated meat while holding his training camp in Mexico.

He was forced to withdraw from the Golovkin rematch and received a six month suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Golovkin will move forward on the May date, but now against Vanes Martirosyan at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Canelo plans to fight again in September.

Jacobs believes the suspension should have been longer and he also feels there should have been a substantial fine as well.

"A lot of guys are finding different ways to cheat now in boxing. Im just glad that he got caught. It tarnishes his legacy. And ultimately, a lot of people in the boxing world feel the suspension is a pat on the back. I believe that a hefty fine should be set in place. Because how do you truly penalize a guy, who just takes a six month break and then fights in September," Jacobs told

Jacobs lost a close points decision to Golovkin in March 2017 and wants to get his hands on GGG in a rematch.

The Miracle Man sounding like The Sour Patch Kid, hope to see Carnelo vs Jacobs as long as he's signed with VADA testing! Would be a interesting fight!

[QUOTE=budfr;18710091]**** that hater, typical of an ugly fighter that is envious of Canelo. His legacy is intact, eating a piece of meat does not make you a cheater. PEDS were used by Mosley and yourself I´m sure.[/QUOTE] Canelo's hair foilcules…

[QUOTE=-Kev-;18710039]Yeah, it’s nowhere near the same. Although GGG fans were making it a big deal anyway. It was just required to fight for the IBF title IIRC. Jacobs opted out of it, so he didn’t have to weigh himself. What…
