Daniel Jacobs' Trainer on What's Needed To Defeat Canelo

This past Saturday night, Daniel Jacobs claimed the vacant IBF middleweight title with a twelve round split-decision victory over Sergiy Derevyanchenko at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Jacobs earned a hard fought split decision victory with two judges scoring it 115-112 and the other having Derevyanchenko the winner at 114-113.

Jacobs is now hoping to secure a unification with WBC, WBA middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez.


On December 15, Canelo moves up to the super middleweight division to challenge WBA "regular" champion Rocky Fielding.

Afterwards, Canelo is expected to return to 160-pounds, and with a ring return planned for May 2019.

Jacobs is one of the names being mentioned to fight Canelo in May.

"We absolutely want Canelo," he said. "Now I have this strap there will be more in the pudding for everybody. I feel like I am in my prime. I showed true grit and I know I have got another tank inside me if plan A doesn't work."

Andre Rozier, the head trainer for Jacobs, was satisfied with his boxer's performance.

"He did a good job. I was looking for a few more things, but I was very happy with what we had. He's made me very proud of him, as he usually does. We didn't even argue [in the corner], so I guess we did alright," Rozier said.

Rozier has already begun to analyze the strategy to defeat the shorter Canelo, who likes to get on the inside in order to land hard hooks to the body.

"He's gonna have to utilize his jab of course, and work up the middle a bit more. Every fighter who boxes an opponent that's shorter - should be throwing a jab, a right hand, and a left uppercut. That should be coming constantly, and then he should be coming with the hook. So he's going to work on this things and we'll be ready for it," Rozier said.

[QUOTE=sterilizer;19237195]I just can't understand why some people on here keep stating that absurd idea that Jacobs "can" knock Alvarez down. In their dreams. If anything, it is exactly the other way around. Canelo has NEVER EVER been knocked down, he…
